Sir Apropos of Nothing
3 : Tong Lashing

by Peter David
Mar 16, 2016
10 Hours
Ages 18+
It's hard to find a lesser man than Apropos: a con man, a knave, a scalawag...and those are his finer points. This time, Apropos winds up a stranger in a strange land called "Chinpan," populated by those who speak a different language and live by a code of honor, neither of which Apropos can comprehend. And yet it is here that he begins to examine his life and question whether he can aspire to become more than the hard-bitten cynic he's always been.

He may yet be able to find a happy ending among a gentle people who are willing to accept him, faults and all, and he acquires a teacher who may even be able to set him on a road to true enlightenment. But events conspire to pull Apropos in unexpected and dangerous directions, for his presence in Chinpan does not go unnoticed. What does the mysterious criminal organization known as the Forked Tong want with him?

How do their plans tie in or conflict with the criminal Skang Kei family, and their enigmatic leader, Skang Kei Ho? What of the Mingol hordes? And what will be the fate of the Chin clan, including Double Chin, Cleft Chin, Kit Chin, and little Kit Chinette?

Sir Apropos of Nothing: Tong Lashing by Steve (Posted on 2/18/2019)
This was quite a bit darker than the first two books in this series. I can see why it hasn't continued. Not sure if I want another story like this if it did.

The shortest so far of the tales and most bizzare as of yet.
Well written, but kind of depressing. by Eric (Posted on 10/18/2016)
So, this is a mixed review. I really enjoy Scott McCormick's telling of the tale. And, the opening sequence is great! The story is deep and has tons of great characterizations. The acting and production are all well worth the listen.

The downside is the story itself. The series is written as a comedy. But particularly in this book, it really gets to be downright depressing in parts...tragic even. It's a weird pairing, the slapstick and terrible puns / word play "Housbyu" "Chin-pan-ese"...etc., together with a story about children dying. I'm doing my best not to add spoilers. But suffice it to say, that things often go from bad to worse to horrible and end up at - empty. I realize that humor often has a sharp point to it. But, this seems to have a shaft with sandpaper wrapped around it for you to slide down.

I'll continue to listen to this series mainly because I want to know what the heck happens. And, Scott McCormick does a great job. But, I am afraid that the author might dig another even more depressing hole to wallow in.

Peter David really has some great talent. But, somtimes I wonder what kinds of mood swings he's having while penning this series.

I'm not saying that a story is only good if "all's well that ends well." But, it would be nice if at least sometimes, Apropos caught a real break and not just a lead up to a huge steaming bowl of disappointment.

Good book
Third Book Of The Original Trilogy by Kevin (Posted on 3/10/2016)
Scott McCormick has done an amazing job of not only bringing Apropos to life but has made this one of the best series I have listened to from Graphic Audio...

This is a series you need to check out - especially with Peter David currently working on a forth novel, Pyramid Schemes...(which will hopefully become "a movie in your mind...")
