I wouldn't take the time to read this book, but on tape it's OK to listen to while driving. It's mildly interesting, although the mystery is somewhat far-fetched and silly to this old man. Not my cup of tea, to tell you the truth. I've listed to other Pollifax stories, and while they, too, are wildly unlikely, they were fairly interesting stories. I was glad when this one was over. My wife, on the other hand, enjoyed it just fine.
