Brilliantly quirky and funny thriller!
Observant, clever, humorous
I love this series of Colin Bateman's books. The main character is a self- centred hypochondriac who attracts trouble and then in his efforts to extricate himself from it drags both himself and those around him further into the mire. I love the dispassionate way he observes the people around him. His personality is perfect as the narrator of the story because a more socially aware character would not compute people in the way he does. As someone who knows Belfast quite well I love the references to streets and places around the city and the humour is dry and clever and real.
Stephen Armstrong tells the tale the way the main character would tell it. His accent is easy to listen to and the story is told perfectly.
I love this series of "The Mystery Man" books. I have read some and listened to some. They are all funny page-turners/the audio book equivalent. You are left with an affection for the main characters.
I think the voice of a Northern Irish Narrator does add something to the authenticity of this audiobook.
Start with the first book in the series,"The Mystery Man" and enjoy!
