A lot of the failings of Tim Dorsey's novel can be forgiven because it's supposed to be a comedy. But it's hard to be THAT forgiving because--being about a serial killer and his sidekick--it isn't very funny. Narrator George Wilson sometimes sounds too old for the characters, though it's hard to say since we're never told how old lead characters Serge Storms and Coleman are supposed to be. Wilson does his best, but the audiobook is a jumble. The story is confusing, and the plot doesn't begin to coalesce until the fifth (of nine) discs. Wilson's talents are better put to use elsewhere.
