Editor reviews

Oliver Wyman's voice sounds like a chainsaw in a minor key in his latest turn as Serge A. Storms in Dorsey's eleventh Florida adventure. The lovable psychopath/hero, Serge, along with his trusty amigo, Coleman, who's always high, cruises tourist sites like the West Tavern, where Lynyrd Skynyrd was inspiration for the song "Three Steps." They're gathering material for a travel website to the weird. The villain, a small-time thug nicknamed "Jellyfish," and a gorgeous stripper who is dancing her way through college feature in a surreal plot. Wyman's mishmash of gravelly accents and Dorsey's off-the-wall jokes make listening to this audio highly entertaining.

Summary

Just when you thought it was safe to go online...

Serge has returned! That loveable collector of trivia, souvenirs, and murder methods is back with a new A-Tour of Florida. And this time he's out to set the record straight!

Serge is upset that his beloved state isn't getting its proper recognition, so he sets up his own wildcat Internet travel-service site, hyper-blogging his way down the coast with his perpetually hammered sidekick, Coleman. Unfortunately Serge's Web presence catches the attention of his nemesis, Agent Mahoney, and the chase is on.

Meanwhile, professional robbery crews have begun targeting trade show exhibitors, who may or may not be what they seem. Bodies begin piling up, and Serge has had enough! He's forced into the only logical course of action: shopping at the Home Depot.

And this only raises more questions: Who is tutoring strippers through the community college? Where did all these diamonds come from? And does Lynyrd Skynyrd hold the key to everything?

It's time to sign on with Serge and see where the twisting, sun-splashed trail leads in Nuclear Jellyfish!

Saying goodbye to a good character

Serge Storm is a bipolar serial killer that has kept my spirits up and laughing across many miles of commuting through Arkansas and Missouri. Apparently the last in the series. I guess there are only so many implements of death that one can find in a Home Depot.
If you are new to Tim Dorsey, I recommend Orange Crush - an epic election year tale.

Oddly funny.

This was my first Tim Dorsey novel. I wasn't so sure about the book in the beginning; the plot seemed a bit scattered, and I almost stopped listening. But I stuck with it, and I'm glad I did! The seemingly incongruent plot lines all come together beautifully in the end. A good listen for those who like off-beat humor.

One of my favorite Serge stories

I've been listening since Book 1 of the Serge Storms series came out on audio. This performance was great! Major chapter sections are segued with music which enhanced the mood. It's been hard to adjust since the narrator changed, but this performance turned the page for me.

Another hilarious book from Dorsey

Any additional comments?

Despite what others have said, I started listening to the later Serge books so for me George Wilson is not the 'real' Serge. I think Oliver Wyman does an excellent job. His combination of indifferent narration coupled with spot on character voices is simply perfect. His delivery makes Tim Dorsey's books even funnier and incredibly easy to listen to. At times you think there are multiple narrators he switches between character voices so well.

Need to get back to George Wilson~

Although I enjoyed the book, I certainly missed hearing the best narrator for Serge & Coleman - Geroge Wilson.. no one can do Serge as good as this man! If you are a fan of Dorsey, you will not be disappointed.. but please bring back Geroge Wilson!!!

Can't get enough of Serge!

Would you consider the audio edition of Nuclear Jellyfish to be better than the print version?

Don't know, because I have not read the print verison. But I have to tell you, listening to this is a riot! Real "laugh out loud" stuff!

What other book might you compare Nuclear Jellyfish to and why?

Well, the other books in this series. Serge, & Coleman, too funny for words.

Which scene was your favorite?

Hard to say, because you don't have time to consider....the thing moves at lightning pace

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Wish I could have. And may listen to it again, just for that reason!

Any additional comments?

More Serge, give me more Serge!

Awful narrator

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Book yes, audiobook maybe.

What other book might you compare Nuclear Jellyfish to and why?

Just like other Tim Dorsey books

What didn’t you like about Oliver Wyman’s performance?

Nothing was probably the worst narrator I have ever heard

Did Nuclear Jellyfish inspire you to do anything?

Pray the narrator never does another book again

Any additional comments?

Did I mention the narrator sucked.

One of his best, if not the best.

I simply can not get enough of Serge and Coleman. This is easily one of the very best of Serge's adventures. Great storyline, great narrator, and a twist at the end. I can only hope that more if not all of Tim's books become audio offerings.

Dumb,dumb,dumb

What a completely and utterly stupid story. THe story line was completely confusing and unbelievable and the narrators voice irritating beyond belief. I couldn't finish it and I rarely leave one unheard.

Always an adventure

A pretty good book in the series. It's always an awesome adventure and what better place to have such an adventure than in Florida with Serge and Coleman?
