  • "More Crispin please!"

    Overall

    Please give us more of this wonderful author and the equally wonderful narrator Stephen Thorne. These books are fun, intriguing and will tax your deductive powers in figuring out the mystery. If you haven't read the Gervase Fen series, you are in for a treat.

    Story

    Patricia Wentworth was a contemporary of Agatha Christie but in fact, wrote her first successful mystery novels a few years before Christie published her first Miss Marple books. There are striking similarities in the two protagonists and if you love Miss Marple, you will no doubt love Miss Silver as well. Diana Bishop, as usual, does an outstanding job with the narration. I am a great fan of the "cozy" British mystery and find all of Patricia Wentworth's books to be great fun. I am thrilled that Audible is adding more of them all the time.

    I LOVE the Gervase Fen novels - I only wish there had been more and that there were more of them on Audible. Stephen Thorne does a fabulous job of narrating. If you have never met Gervase, you owe it to yourself to get that introduction.

Calliope's greatest hits:
  • Spider's Web

    "lightweight Christie"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This review was mistakenly posted elsewhere (for The Clocks), but it correctly applies to Spider's Web: "This is a particularly lightweight mystery, pleasant but not really interesting or compelling. Hugh Fraser narrated it well, however, and I won't hesitate to download another book with him as a reader."

  • Cards on the Table: A Hercule Poirot Mystery

    "this is a great Christie mystery"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    Some of Agatha Christie's mysteries are more about characters and some are more about mystery, and this is one of the latter. That's not to say that the characters are poor, only that the mystery itself takes center stage. It's a real whodunnit: A dinner party includes 4 criminals, whom the host claims to know have each gotten away with murder, and 4 sleuths, both professionals and amateurs......and while the 4 criminals are in a room playing bridge, one of them quietly and secretly murders the host. Whodunnit, and how will Poirot figure it out? Keep listening and find out.

    Hugh Fraser does a terrific job, as I've enjoyed in the past.

  • Three Blind Mice and Other Stories

    "Liked Three Blind Mice; no so much the others"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I purchased mostly for the Three Blind Mice story, which I enjoyed. I'm not a fan of Joan Hickson's narration (she seems to have a bit of a lisp!), but Hugh Fraser is very good. The other short stories were fine, but only fine. I stick to Agatha Christie's novels in the future and avoid some of these very short stories.

  • Death in a White Tie

    "bad pacing and narration"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I hate to say this because I love Benedict Cumberbatch's speaking voice, but the narration on this audiobook is really bad - the pacing is too quick and, espcially with the fast pacing, it's difficult to tell one speaker from another. There are parts where the narration is much better and there is tone and emotion in the various character's voices, and other times when it sounds like the book is being read quickly with little inflection, as if under time constraints. I don't know if that's a post-production issue or if Cumberbatch read it that way.

    I haven't decided if I'm going to continue or return it. I might choose an unabridged Ngaio Marsh title with a different narrator, as I can see some good mystery underneath it all.

    A car accident in upstate New York strands Nero Wolfe, America's largest detective, and Archie Goodwin, his confidential assistant, in the midst of a family feud. The feud, over $45,000 worth of prize bull, turns ugly when the beef in question is found pawing the mangled body of a family scion. Solving the mystery is no problem - but, alas, the evidence keeps disappearing.

    First appearing in print in 1890, the character of Sherlock Holmes has now become synonymous worldwide with the concept of a super sleuth. His creator, Conan Doyle, imbued his detective hero with intellectual power, acute observational abilities, a penchant for deductive reasoning and a highly educated use of forensic skills. Indeed, Doyle created the first fictional private detective who used what we now recognize as modern scientific investigative techniques.

    Arthur Conan Doyle never wasted time in getting his stories moving. His plots are always direct and refreshingly lucid, and the narrative has a velocity that sweeps you along right to the end. This was no doubt a large part of his immense worldwide success. Not surprisingly, each time he tried to end the series, his fans would howl in protest. But, as he says in the preface to his last collection of Sherlock Holmes stories, all good things must come to an end.

At the center of each stands the iconic figure of Holmes - brilliant, eccentric, and capable of amazing feats of deductive reasoning.

    Sherlock Holmes faced his nemesis Professor James Moriarty, but O. Henry’s Shamrock Jolnes faced the murderer Avery Knight. Is it possible Knight could use deductive reasoning better than the great New York detective? This delightful parody mirrors Doyle’s Holmes, but adds some well-placed humor.

Razumeetsja, ljubye podrobnosti, pozvoljajushhie chitatelju opredelit', v kakom kolledzhe proishodilo delo ili kto byl prestupnik, neumestny i dazhe oskorbitel'ny.

    V jetom pamjatnom 1895 godu Holms proizvel celyj rjad ljubopytnyh i raznoobraznyh issledovanij, nachinaja s vyjasnenija prichin vnezapnoj smerti kardinala Toski (po nastojatel'nomu zhelaniju Vatikana) i konchaja arestom prestupnika Uilsona; jetot znamenityj trener kanareek byl vmeste s tem istinnoj jazvoj londonskogo Ist-Jenda. Vsled za jetimi gromkimi delami voznikla tragedija v Vudmens-Li: kapitan Piter Kern pogib pri samyh strashnyh i tainstvennyh obstojatel'stvah.
