Something from the Nightside, Audio Book (2003/2008) Simon R. Green narrated by Marc Vietor

Ah, John Bloody Taylor, how the Nightside has missed you.

I saw myself as a knight-errant . . . but the damsel in distress stabbed me in the back, my sword shattered on the dragon’s hide, and my grail turned out to be the bottom of a whiskey bottle.

Or perhaps not.

I didn’t know if I still had it in me to be really dangerous, but I thought so. It’s like knocking someone off a bike with a baseball bat; you never really lose the knack.

I’m still at loose ends as to what I want to listen to, so I decided that the Nightside would work well enough while I searched for a series that would keep me walking just one more chapter AND was available to borrow from the library (I bought the first audio book ages ago when it was on sale).

Do I like the audio version? Yes. Yes I do.

Is this a series where I should listen to one book after the other? Probably not. Not anything to do with the narration, but the Nightside books can get a bit repetitive when read one after the other. So maybe in a few months I’ll look into reading the second, so I’ll enjoy the second book as much as I did the first.
