"the best of the three"
I just love to laugh and this third volume of Professor Dr. von Igelsfeld was wonderfully and charmingly funny. Throughout the three volumes one starts to really like Igelfeld, in spite of the perfect caricature of a german professor. I won't tell the story, but von Igelfeld's encounter with the latin American culture is superb and very funny.
I loved all the von Igelfeld books for themselves, but Hugh Laurie's performance is unbeatable.
Definitely it made me laugh.
The three charming books and Hugh Laurie's excellent performance gave me some very pleasant hours driving in my car. I wish I knew more of this kind of books and performance.
