Patrick F. With Kerplunk!, McManus delivers a collection of folksy, wonderfully wise depictions of country life worthy of Mark Twain. In these tall tales, McManus and his buddies learn how not to net a fish, why you should never get your hair cut by someone who's mad at you, what to do when a deer wanders into camp but your sleeping bag has frozen shut, and how to avoid bird-dog flatulence.

Patrick Francis McManus (August 25, 1933 – April 11, 2018) was an American humor writer, who primarily wrote about the outdoors. A humor columnist for Outdoor Life, Field & Stream, and other magazines, his columns and stories have been collected in several books, beginning with A Fine and Pleasant Misery (1978) up through The Horse in My Garage and Other Stories (2012).

Listen to unlimited audiobooks on the web, iPad, iPhone and Android. Patrick F. McManus has garnered legions of faithful fans with his monthly column in Outdoor Life and his many celebrated books, including the New York Times bestsellers The Grasshopper Trap and The Night the Bear Ate Goombaw.

Fun collection of essays by McManus, expertly read by Dick Hill. I was in the mood for something light and funny.

He may not be a healthy read however. My sides are splitting. The "F" in his name must stand for funny, farsical, filarious, or somesuch wonderful name. I highly recommend this book of short stories to anyone who loves to giggle, laugh, guffaw, or just read in the bath area Fun collection of essays by McManus, expertly read by Dick Hill. The narration by Hill was perfect. Good for people who hunt, fish, enjoy the outdoors.

Written by Patrick F. McManus, Audiobook narrated by Dick Hill. Often compared to Garrison Keillor and Mark Twain, Patrick F. McManus maintains just the right balance between baffled innocence and conspiratorial confidence. Since 1979, this humorist has been delighting readers with hilarious stories recounting his childhood in rural Idaho and relating his misadventures in the great outdoors.

This is the latest hilarious collection of folksy, humorous, and wonderfully wise stories about country life from the bestselling author of The Blight Way.Patrick F.

There are nearly 2 million copies of his books in print.The stories in Kerplunk! travel the byways and highways of the Pacific Northwest, bringing to life offbeat, down-home characters who hope their grandchildren can pick the lock on the gun safe because they've forgotten the combination, who know exactly why it costs $500 to make a fly lure that retails for $2, and who aren't afraid to confront the problems of bird dog flatulence.
  • WARNING - Although I absolutely love the work of Patrick McManus, this CD does NOT play on most CD players. It is recorded in "MP3-CD" format and is "IPOD READY". Therefore, it is not compatible with the overwhelming majority of CD players in the world, including most portable players and those found in homes and most vehicles. I tried them all and the CD's won't play. It will play fine on your computer but if you want to play it anywhere else do NOT buy this product! Make sure you get one recorded in regular CD audio. The seller does not adequately warn consumers about this vital fact. Buyer Beware!

  • McManus is an outstanding writer. He is probably my favorite living author. I would rate most of his books as 5 stars without hesitation. However, this book is inconsistent: Some stories are hysterical, but some are only "OK." This is pretty much what the author warns at the beginning, so he cannot be faulted (he's just publishing a bunch of "odds and ends" stories). I am enjoying it, and it's still worth getting, IMO, but it's not at the level of his other books. (However, there is one story that may be the funniest thing I have ever read, which is worth the cost of the book!)

  • I recently listened to the Audible Audio version of this book. Years ago I read the print version. I really enjoy all of the author's books but I never thought that this particular collection was as good as some of the others. I was really disappointed with the narrator. Not so much because he did a poor job but really because he wasn't Norman Dietz who so perfectly captures McManus in most of the other Audible recordings. I wouldn't hesitate to add this to your collection but only after you have all the books narrated by Dietz.

  • I would rate almost anything written by Pat McManus five stars. If you do not like humor don't read his books. If you do and have ever done any camping, boating, hunting or fishing you will love him. Things he writes about many of us have experienced to a lesser degree when we have been in the outdoors. Kerplunk is typical of his writing and makes very good reading.

  • As a long-time McManus fan, I have to admit, up front, that this is not his best collection. Still, it's all McManus which means the worst you're going to get is very, very good. It was nice to revisit some of the old characters (Crazy Eddie, Retch, and Rancid) and meet some new ones, and, yes, there were plenty of laughs.

    The highlight, for me, was "The Christmas Goose." It's hard to go wrong with a Rancid Crabtree story!

    Overall Kerplunk had something of a "thrown together" feel, and left me wondering if we might be losing the old Pat McManus collections to the new Bo Tully mysteries (which are wonderful, by the way.)

    Regardless, if you, like many of us, are a devoted fan, you'll want to add this one to your collection. Like slightly fuzzy photos, it may not be framing quality, but it still brings back some great memories and more than a few chuckles.

  • I was very sick after a surgery and was laughing to much reading this book and others by McManus that I had to put it down at time for the tears in my eyes. So funny.

  • We have most all of Patrick McManus books! He is an awesome & funny writer. Writes about his life events! Met him in person several times & he is GREAT! Very funny & awesome outlook on life & his past adventures!

  • If you have never read his stuff ...
    Have grown up in outdoors ...
    Hunted, fished ...
    Like to laugh ...
    You are missing ...
    The experience of one of the best humor writers,
    Of the past and present century ...
