    Love Bill Nighy Unfortunately our Library only owns 2 of his Charles Paris Mysteries on CD This one was even funnier than Cast in Order The lady portraying his semi detached wife has expert timing The scene where he is trying to tell her what happened last night as she is reading off DVD XXX titles is hilarious My favorite line comes in a scene where his agent is storming out of the flat and as the door slams Charles says, Don t I get a kiss Laughing out loud driving down Columbia Pa Love Bill Nighy Unfortunately our Library only owns 2 of his Charles Paris Mysteries on CD This one was even funnier than Cast in Order The lady portraying his semi detached wife has expert timing The scene where he is trying to tell her what happened last night as she is reading off DVD XXX titles is hilarious My favorite line comes in a scene where his agent is storming out of the flat and as the door slams Charles says, Don t I get a kiss Laughing out loud driving down Columbia Parkway I m listening to disc 2 for a third time before I return it

    Charles Paris is certainly not very heroic or have much gumption or incentive Things seem to just happen around and to him There were quite a few holes in the plot, and much too much alcohol dazed times which don t seem to matter much There really were not many characters that I liked, in fact, none It s difficult to like a book when you don t like any characters, and can t relate to any of them The people in this novel were like reading a psych student study of a disfunctional group weir Charles Paris is certainly not very heroic or have much gumption or incentive Things seem to just happen around and to him There were quite a few holes in the plot, and much too much alcohol dazed times which don t seem to matter much There really were not many characters that I liked, in fact, none It s difficult to like a book when you don t like any characters, and can t relate to any of them The people in this novel were like reading a psych student study of a disfunctional group weird but hard to care about
