Fun story, weird pace

The story is fun, with good characterizations, but the narration is oddly slow, with an unusually long pause between every single sentence.

UFOs & Unpaid Taxes

I was given this book for free in exchange for an honest review.

I don't know what I expected, but this went above what I thought. It's still funny, and yes he has flaws, but it's for sure an enjoyable story. Thank you!

An Amazing Follow Up in the Series

I enjoyed this more than the first book and I really thought the first was amazing. The funny parts I’m the book made me laugh out loud. Especially the part when Alfred goes to the buffet and his friend eat the ribs. The book had funny setups and humor that mad it great. The Narrator also did and excellent job again and made it come alive for me. The rest of the series is now on my wish list.

Holy Sugar Cookies!

This series continues its fun romp as a satirical forray of science fiction, the perpetually annoying by the book g man and fantasy. There's something so awesome about this collection of characters and misadventures.

UFOs & Unpaid Taxes

Alfred Favero is no superhero, or is he? When a routine tax audit puts him in the situation of witnessing an alien abduction (it’s not what you think...), he knows what he needs to do, even if that means losing everything.

I enjoyed this fun story by Rachel Ford. Her main character is by no means perfect... he has his flaws, and I think that’s why I like him so much. He’s just an ordinary guy that finds himself in extraordinary situations.

The narration by John Carter Aimone was well done and enjoyable to listen to.

close encounters of the hilarious kind

Who knew our first encounter with an alien would be so expensive. Do they really eat that much on their own planet?

Narrator is perfect. He gives it just the panache that it needs to convey the deadpan humor. My only quibble is that he tends to narrate Alfred's thoughts so slow that when you speed it up, the dialogue comes too fast.

I paid for this book! And listened to it twice.

The truth is out there

Our hero is really good at his job, but sometimes mysteries are not meant to be discovered. This is one of those cases.

This is book two of the series. There are some references to the previous story, but overall it stands up just fine on its own, so feel free to start here. However, if you enjoy this one as much as I did, you will want to go back and read/listen to book one anyway.

This is a light science fiction novel with a heavy dose of dry humor. After all, what would you expect when the hero is a taxman who doesn't get why everyone dislikes tax collectors? The story is very well written and easy to read, but the plot has plenty of twists and turns that keep the reader guessing. The characters are also fantastic, really well developed with personalities that bring the story to life. Overall, a fun read that had be addicted from the start.

I should also mention that the narrator did a great job. The narration was clear, easy to follow and provided just the right hint of character emotions to support the story.

Highly recommended.

An overall enjoyable read

So book two in the Time Travelling Taxman series: UFOs and Unpaid Taxes by Rachel Ford.
This story is very different from the first book and it took me a little while to get into it. Even though I was familiar with Alfred Favero, Senior Analyst for the IRS, his rather self-righteous views and dogged, compulsive ways to pursue any perceived tax offenders, he annoyed me at the beginning of the book. To be fair his instincts generally prove to be right and his sense of justice and fairness is commendable. That and his aggravating, but often endearing flaws redeemed him to me and it was good to witness his continuing personal growth.

The ongoing back story from book 1 is Alfred’s love for Nancy, his colleague and Lead IT analyst for the IRS; his rivalry with Josh (ex-marine from book 1) for Nancy’s heart and her torn feelings for them both. These circumstances force Alfred and Josh to become allies in the adventures afoot.

Alfred suspects a company that has set up a museum, shop and cafe at a rumoured UFO landing site of tax evasion and pursues them. During his investigation he witnesses an alien being escorted by black suits into one of the buildings. He is found out, arrested and forced to drop the case. His feels it is wrong the way the government is holding the alien and suspects that they may be torturing it and rescues the alien.

From here on ensues a hilarious caper of Alfred on the run with Lee, the alien; dealing with his new friend’s needs, curiosity and vernacular learnt from old TV shows. Of course Nancy comes to Alfred’s aid and because of her, reluctantly Josh too.
The ending was to me fairly predictable, but that didn’t take away from the enjoyment of getting there.

Overall this book was very different from the first one and in my opinion not quite as good, but still thoroughly enjoyable.

I was used to the drawl of the narrator John Carter Aimone, from the first book and have grown to rather like him. I have increased the playback speed to x1.10, which I found improved the listening experience for me.

I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review of my own opinion of it.

E.T. and taxes

I enjoyed this book. It is so unusual to what I normally listen to but it is just a great series, that I am hooked. I really liked the twist to the story and think the author does an excellent job of twisting what should be a strange story and making it work. If you like quirky fun stories with funny one liners then this book and In fact the whole series is for you. The story is book two in the series but works just as well as a stand alone.
Alfred is on the hunt for tax fraud and this time he is on his own. This finds him in the Nevada desert to find out why a business is in the black when the small town is booming with lots of alien tourist in the area. It's not long before he falls foul of the local law and when he stumbles on a secret they are trying to keep, his job is threatened. Alfred, with no girlfriend and no job decides to try and do the wrong thing for the right reasons. This means breaking into a government installation and going on the run, with a very special friend. Going undercover isn't easy and its not long before the pair is joined by computer Tec. Nancy and ex marine Josh. Can they keep there secret quiet or will the men in black catch up to them.
I liked the narrator but did have to speed him up, as he talked to slow

UFOs & Unpaid taxes

This was another great story!Alfred is happy to have found another company not paying their way.He headed to UFO central and finds a new friend.He's in a lot of trouble with work and the government. The only flaw is the way the narrator,John Carter Aimone drags out his sentences when Alfred speaks or thinks.He can't be THAT much of a dullard.lol I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.'

Another great sci fi adventure

This second book is as good as the first and made me laugh almost as much.
Alfred the time travelling tax man rescues an alien and shows them the human world.
I fell in love with both Nancy and Alfred in the first book and was delighted their friendship continued in this book. I closely associate with Nancy and feel both her and Alfred’s characters have been captured very well and very consistently across these stories.
I really hope there will be more stories to come in this series as I thoroughly enjoyed them.

Alfred is in Over His Head Again

Oh how I loved this - Alfred is such a straight-up guy, how can anyone believe he is lying, he never lies and he just cannot understand how anyone could believe he did so, of course, he has to prove he wasn't lying and off he goes into an even more of an adventure than the one he was accused of lying about.

He is just such a straight guy, what you see is what you get but oh I love him, he is as straight as a ruler, straighter in fact but he is such an innocent, he sees things and assumes its bad, he doesn't have much faith in the niceness of humanity, being a tax man and dealing with tax cheats has not given him much chance to do so.

Nancy of course appears but she is dating someone else - poor Alfred.

Is he going to come out of this alive or will he end up in prison, locked away in a deep hole never to see daylight again - read and see.............

Like book one there are twists you don't see coming and it just makes the book so readable.

I was given this book free and asked if I would write an honest review and as I adore the book, its like book one, an easy review to write, to easy to give spoilers...........go buy the book. Unless you are looking for books that cross every T and dot every i and want your sci-fi without imagination, you will love this book and the first one.

I do not know the author or have anything to do with audible or any publisher just an audible member who loves books that take her out of her normal life and take her into the world of the book.
