Stephen Fry is just brilliant in this. Just as brilliant as the narration of the Harry Potter books, perhaps even more so because his love for Sherlock Holmes shines through in this. He gives each character such a distinctive voice that you can see the events unfold in front of you. One of my best buys on Audible.

The Eyes of the Overworld is the first of Vance’s picaresque novels about the scoundrel Cugel. Here he is sent by a magician he has wronged to a distant unknown country to retrieve magical lenses that reveal the Overworld. Conniving to steal the lenses, he escapes and, goaded by a homesick monster magically attached to his liver, starts to find his way home to Almery. The journey takes him across trackless mountains, wastelands, and seas.

You'd love to hate Cugel. He's one of the most vile, cunning and evil protagonists I have ever come across. At every turn you'll want him to suffer for the horrible human he is. But who are we to judge? After all, Earth is dying.
