Summary

Tripping the Night Fantastic is essentially a whodunit, but one that is far from the traditional. There is a murder, there is a sleuth, and there is a solution, but in tone and humour it is somewhere between House, M.D. and Trainspotting

Charlie Deavon is a British author who meets a fan (the sexually troublesome Amelia Heart) in a pub. The following morning she is found dead. 

The main suspect in the case is Simon, Charlie's agent. Having avoided the police, Charlie, Simon, and the local bartender try to solve the case together. The three men, what with the stress of it all, turn to a new drug called Merlin, which allows them to control and share hallucinations. 

From then on, they trip and hallucinate their way through to the story's conclusion. 

Charlie and co. like to drink. Only they don't so much go for a drink as go for a splash. They wallow in it like mad fish. It really is no way to go about solving crimes.

Listen, laugh and enjoy! What a great audiobook!

Excellently narrated! I read the book and as soon as it became available on audiobook grabbed the opportunity to download.
It’s a great plot and you are totally caught up in the characters and their stories.

Unendingly Hilarious!

The book was great. I just couldn't stop laughing, chuckling and chortling at all the antics of Charlie, Keep and Simon. All the collective hallucinations, the telepathy, the "Keep, your fu/$ing with me, right?" was particularly good. The merlin even seemed to become permanent at some point. It was just all awesome. Alan R. Gron did an amazing job with all the characters and made everything even more entertaining.

Definitely something different

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a difficult audio book to review. It is well written and narrated but well deserving of it's title. In other words, it's a trip. I don't want to go into detail as it would ruin the experience for new listeners. So, I will leave you with this; If you want something different, you should consider checking this one out.

What. A. Trip.

This book blew me away. It started out like any other novel - a (semi) sympathetic main character, a solid supporting cast, an interesting backstory, and one day something happens - but it ventured into one of the weirdest listens I've ever had the pleasure. I certainly enjoyed it but trying to quantify it and then provide a cogent review...I'm not sure I can.

I never stopped listening with, in its own right, is a testament to how good the listen was. The narration was really well-done as well.

I stayed with this very unique and unusual story until the very "what was that!" ending. It was a trip.

Oddly entertaining

This audible will take you on twists and turns throughout the story. all of which enterwine perfectly for a very unique story.

I enjoyed listening to the narrator as he takes you on a journey not soon to be forgotten.

I received this audible free at my request and am happy to leave my review.
