Nine well-known authors collaborated on this farcical adventure about celebrities and famous golfers who converge on a golf tournament threatened by eco-terrorists. Their contributions are divided by spoken chapter titles, but you literally can't tell the writers without a scorecard, which is provided on the box. The story was a disappointment after NAKED CAME THE MANATEE, a previous collaboration involving three of the same authors: Dave Barry, Les Standiford, and James W. Hall. At times, this work seems to be propelled by profanity, not character or plot. Jeff Woodman's narration is competent, giving the many characters broadly done voices heavy on the Scottish, French, or other accents. J.A.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/MAR 01]
