Tom Robbins is famous for detailed prose that describes a character's psyche as casually as his physical makeup. This audiobook continues the trend with the adventures of Switters, one of the most psychologically complex characters Robbins has ever created. Keith Szarabajka tackles the outrageous text, as well as its subtle nuances, and delivers a performance that is compelling and energetic. It would be easy to get bogged down in Robbins's narrative asides and way- out rants, but it all works out in the end and Szarabajka presents the tale with finesse. It's a pleasure to have another Tom Robbins audiobook and even better to have it narrated so well! R.A.P. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
