So much more than I expected!
I rarely laugh out loud at audiobooks but this one had me guffawing! This was a lively Monty Pythonesque action story. It could have gone on much longer and I would have been pleased. It has animals, natives, crazy Irish, silly and sensible men, a surprise jungle and strong women including the queen. Fans of steampunk will also enjoy some references.
