2017...original poem about the seductive power of hate by Neil Gaiman. It’s read in perfectly droll tones by Peter Kenny.

2015BRIDGWATER, United Kingdom05/11/2013OverallPerformanceStory"One of my all time favourite banks books"Would you listen to Excession again? Why?I would listen to this again and again. Its a fantastic story, and performed to perfection. I've read the book several times, and will most definitely listen to this book again and again.What about Peter Kenny’s performance did you like?Not only is it a fantastic story in true banks style, but the performance of Peter Kenny is just astounding. Only Peter could take such a challenging book (those that have read the book will understand) and turn it into an fantastic adventure into the culture universe. His range of voices are second to none and his consistency of character personalities and styles boggles the mind. How does he do it! Not only am I a huge fan of Banks, but now a huge fan of Peter Kenny.Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?This book is one of the funniest in the culture universe. The ships personalities and egos are simply amazing and make this book easily one of banks greatest.Any additional comments?Peter Kenny has done this book an immense justice. The paper version of this book can be hard to read with all the ship names and chatter, but Peter Kenny pulls it off and makes this one of the best audio books I've ever listened to

2015"A hit novel, enhanced further by great performance"Would you consider the audio edition of The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared to be better than the print version?Haven't read the print version, but the way it is delivered by Peter Kenny is simply brilliant! He gets the tone just right & instead of making the simplicity of the prose seem patronising, turns it into an almost ironic, Winnie the Pooh-like brilliance. Better than the film too
