Paul O'Rourke is a man out of touch with modern life. While his dental practice occupies his days, his nights are filled with darker thoughts, as he alternately marvels at and rails against the optimism of the rest of humanity.
So it goes, until someone begins to impersonate Paul online. What began as an outrageous violation of privacy soon becomes something far more soul-frightening: the possibility that the virtual 'Paul' might be a better version…



"Frenetic, very funny, it confirms Ferris as a rising star of American fiction" (Mail on Sunday)
"Dismayingly funny in the way that only really serious books can be" (Guardian)

a disappointment

Haben Sie die Zeit genossen, in der Sie dieses Hörbuch gehört haben? Warum oder warum nicht?

Campbell Scott is wonderfull.But the book itself after a F1 start becomes slower, the story artificially unrealistic. Fun gives way to pathetic moralistic sermons. I cought myself pretty often watching the time indication to see when it is over

Was werden Sie wohl als nächstes hören?

Do not know yet

Welche Szene hat Ihnen am besten gefallen?

Some pages in the first part are really funny

Würden Sie sich eine Fortsetzung von To Rise Again at a Decent Hour wünschen? Warum oder warum gerade nicht?

No because the story is already too long

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

I guess it is difficult to identify with the main character unless you feel youself desperate, despising the way you live your life,uncapable of having functional relations with others
