Description

In the sequel to Portuguese Irregular Verbs, our hero, Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld, is the unlikely choice to address veterinarians in the Ozark mountains of Arkansas; is dogged by dachshunds; becomes embroiled with that notorious Coptic schismatic, the Duke of Johannesburg (and his victim the Patriarch of Alexandria); and finally ends up being mobbed as the star attraction on a Mediterranean cruise ship.

A treat for Hugh Laurie fans

If you could sum up The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs in three words, what would they be?

Acerbic. Witty. Amusing.

What did you like best about this story?

I'm sure anyone familiar with the absurdities of the life of an Academic will find this hilarious. McCall-Smith's invention of the von Igelfeld character is truly inspired; one of my favourites!

What does Hugh Laurie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hugh Laurie's outrageously silly German accent as von Igelfeld absolutely adds to the humour, he has great fun with the nuances.

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended, McCall Smith fans won't be disappointed with these charming stories

Entzückend

Was hat Ihnen das Hörerlebnis von The Finer Points of Sausage Dogs 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!

even better than the first

once familiar with the hero's weird attitudes, this sequel is even more funny than 'Portuguese irregular verbs'.
Hugh Laurie "plays his voice" like an instrument, developing the humour in brilliant colours.
Chapeau!
