Rating scale: 5=Loved it, 4=Liked it, 3=Ok, 2=Disappointed, 1=Hated it. I look for well developed characters, compelling stories.
Can you ask for anything better than the complete Sherlock Holmes collection narrated by Simon Vance and for just one credit. When I found this selection it went immediately into my wish list and downloaded as soon as my new credit came up. I have not had time to listen to all 58 hours yet, but have been skipping around, sampling old favorites, starting with "A Scandal in Bohemia". Holmes has never sounded so good. For Sherlock fans this is a must.
As other reviewers have noted, the downloads do not give the names of the selections - just chapter numbers. But thanks to reviewer "Santa Fe Painter" the table of contents for each download part is listed. I did a cut-and-paste and printed out this list for reference. I did note that the numbering on his list is slightly different from how my download appears - for each download part, where his list says Chapter 2, make it Chapter 1 and adjust the numbering from there. Then off you go - the game's afoot!
Delightful short story providing gentle smiles with underlying pathos for what poor Mitty's mundane life must be like. His secret lives reveal the heroic spirit that could light a spark if it only dared. Obviously released as a promotion for the upcoming movie, but I think I prefer the short version that leaves more to our imagination. After all - that's what it's really all about isn't it?
What a treat to have a snack sized Joshilyn Jackson offering to introduce her newest loveably quirky southern family. As with all of her books, there is humor within the trials of life, and the solid strength that surprises not only the reader, but sometimes the characters themselves. Jackson has proved herself an astute observer of southern behavior and language to continually create characters that are not only believable, but ones I would love to befriend. Now I just have to wait 12 more days before I can get to know the rest of this story.
for a good short piece in this style, though modern setting, it is well done and i enjoyed it. i would say that perhaps the plot and temperament is more noir than the style but it works. a bit Body Heat/Miami Vice setting, not a cop story. love noir style and hope they keep doing more though this is technically i suppose a neo-noir. can't say too much without giving something away.
