THE FALL OF FERGAL begins a new series by the always funny Ardagh. When LeFay McNally becomes a finalist in the Tap 'n' Type typing competition, she decides to take her family "to the capital" with her. Then the adventure begins because the family of four is so poor that they must sneak into LeFay's hotel room. Narrator Joe Barrett keeps listeners chuckling with a refreshing delivery that combines a melodious Irish accent with hilarious lines and asides. Also, Ardagh's delightful characters and witty word choices add a lively challenge, which Barrett brilliantly meets. The heavy and sometimes over-the-top accents are perfectly rendered--and always understandable. S.G.B. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
