There are books of the same chemical composition as dynamite. The only difference is that a piece of dynamite explodes once, whereas a book explodes a thousand times. ― Yevgeny Zamyatin
It's an unusual play. Film noirish, if I can put it like that. As the story unravelled I got emotionally involved, and I waited with bated breath for the ending.
The story gave me the creeps.
Don't get confused with negative reviews. Either read the play first or, if you buy the audio, listen till the end. 'An inspector calls' is an emotional roller coaster which starts on a rather low key but gets mysterious and macabre by the end.
These are wonderfully voiced radio plays of some of the original Sherlock Holmes stories - they are old (from the 1950s), so the quality of the recording is not up to the stereo, multi-track standards of some, but the quality of the actors make up for any such issues. It's obvious that the stories are episodes of a radio series, since they each start and end with theme music and a voice over. I like the episodic nature of these stories - I can listen to one or two of them in between longer audiobooks to kind of take a mental break before moving from one book to another. The stories are good fun, and the narration is wonderful.
