Description

Alexander McCall Smith, best-selling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency, has turned his hand to humour. The delightful result is a creation of comic genius. For in the unnaturally tall form of Professor Doctor Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld, we are invited to meet a memorable character whose sublime insouciance is a blend of the cultivated pomposity of Frasier Crane and of Inspecteur Clouseau's hapless gaucherie.

Von Igelfeld inhabits the rarefied world of the Institute of Romance Philology at Regensburg, a world he shares with his equally tall and equally ridiculous colleagues, Professors Florianus Prinzel and Detlev Amadeus Unterholzer. Their unlikely adventures are described in three deliciously funny instalments: Portuguese Irregular Verbs, The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs, and At the Villa of Reduced Circumstances.

Listen again and again

I don't know if there is category called best re-listenable, if there is then this is No.1. This is a lovely book and Hugh Laurie does a superb job; fills each character with a unique personality and reads with such dry wit. I truely love this audiobook.

Hugh Laurie rocks!

I love Alexander McCall Smith and read with pleasure just about everything he writes. Although the characters in his 44 Scotland Street and (sadly arrested after just three novels) Corduroy Mansions series are closer to my heart than those in Portuguese Irregular Verbs, this is possibly his funniest collection. The humour is delightfully absurd. But it is Hugh Laurie's outstanding narration that has motivated me to write a review. It is absolute perfection.

Like music

The story itself is quite odd, especially with german main characters who act as weird as foreigners would expect them to do about 50 years ago.
But listening to Hugh Laurie is an absolute pleasure, who reads like making music with his voice. Tone richness and clear as crystal.....

Horrible German clichés and accents

The story itself is already a disappointment. Lots of clichés and characters that are not human beings but stereotypes. Add to that a reading with horrible imitations of German accents (and Italian and indian) I got to the point where I felt embarrassed for the actor. I would strongly advise against buying this audio book

Entzückend

Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von Portuguese Irregular Verbs besonders unterhaltsam gemacht?

Diese Geschichten von Alexander McCall-Smith sind so oder so ausgezeichnet und unheimlich gut beobachtet und geschrieben. Das Erlebnis wird dann aber noch von Hugh Lauries Vorlesen noch überboten - wirklich unheimlich unterhaltsam!

Theoretische Akademiker

Zum schießen! Volltheoretiker bei der Arbeit. Wunderbar gelesen von Hugh Laurie, bei dem selbst ein Telefonbuch noch gut klingt. Gruseliger deutscher Akzent in der wörtlichen Rede und viele lustige Begebenheiten, die nur weltfremden Akademikern zustossen können.
