Fiction • 6 hrs • Abridged • © 2001

Peter David turns the traditional quest plot of the penniless young man turned hero on its head. At times funny, satiric, and serious, the story tells of Apropos's quest to make his fortune while avenging his mother, a tavern wench, who gave birth to him as a result of rape by knights. As narrator, David's enthusiasm and spirit never flag through this entertaining saga; his only fault is that he is sometimes shrill when voicing older women. His timing complements both the humor and satire in the story of a man fighting his destiny as a hero at every turn, yet he also handles the serious bits capably. The freshness of the story and its fully involved narrator make this fun. M.A.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 02]
