Mr Munchausen

Gelesen von Kevin Green

(4,575 Sterne; 40 Bewertungen)

The author has discovered for us in this volume the present stopping place of that famous raconteur of dear comic memory, the late Hieronymous Carl Friederich, sometime Baron Munchausen, and he transmits to us some further adventures of this traveler and veracious relater of merry tales. There are about a dozen of these tales, and, judging by Mr. Bangs' recital of them, the Baron's adventures on this mundane sphere were no more exciting than those he has encountered since taking the ferry across the Styx. Mr. Bangs proves himself well worthy of the task of reintroducing this merry old wag to modern fun-lovers, and in selecting from the tales the Baron has related to him he has chosen with an eye to the humorous which is unfailing in its clearness and keenness of perception. (Review from Book News, V. 20, 1902) (3 hr 4 min)

Enjoyed these short tales easy light listening. Kevin Green does a very good job of reading all these tales , he comes across as the Baron very well. I just like this authors works and find his mild humor entertaining. Well worth a listen when snowed bounded in February.

A very fine reading
