Baron Munchausen is probably best known to Americans as the hero of the 1988 Terry Gilliam film--but he has been amusing Europeans since 1785. This audiobook limits itself to the original text--to which other authors have been adding almost from the beginning--but fully conveys the absurdity that has made the baron an icon. Peter Wickham voices the baron with just the right mix of candor and braggadocio; he's a man who truly believes he has lived through all his inconceivable adventures. Listeners who are more firmly tethered to reality may not enjoy the humor so much, but those who can embrace the insanity will find this an absolute hoot.
