by | Read by Oliver Wyman

Fiction • 8.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

Originally published in 1999, Moore's amusing tale of sex, drugs, and sea creatures gains a second life in the voice of Oliver Wyman. As the local therapist begins experimenting with her patients' medications and the local constable gives up his habitual marijuana use, a sea creature rises from his murky sleep, and Pine Cove becomes center stage for all sorts of chaos and zaniness. Wyman's soft, congenial voice proves perfect for Moore's sardonic yet bemused tone, especially when paired with characters such as Constable Theophilus Crowe. Wyman maintains a nuanced and steady narrative while also portraying a cast of multiple species with eccentric and, often, slightly perverted personalities.
