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

  • "Make a confession to a Ghost?"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    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.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If my friend remembers and enjoyed old radio drama, this would be the show for him. When I was a kid in the 1950s, my father let me listen to records of old radio drama, and when I scanned the dial of the old tube radio late at night, sometimes I could find radio shows like this one.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    These were nice short stories fitting of the hard boiled detective I enjoy.


    Which character – as performed by Jim French and Phil Harper – was your favorite?

    Harry Nile, our hero is my favorite of course.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole flavor of dramatic radio theator is wonderful for me.

  • "Top performance of a classic story"

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    This story has some unique features among Agatha Christie's books. There's no second murder to help narrow down the suspects, and Poirot must solve the crime in a matter of hours. Even if you've read the story before, this dramatisation is still worth listening to. The sound effects may not be quite movie standard, but they're convincing none the less. The acting is good, and the script writer left the original story alone. And for those of us who can't see, we can follow the story as well as our sighted friends staring at the radio. A pleasant two hours listening.

    Dragnet was perhaps the most famous and influential police procedural drama in media history. The series gave millions of audience members a feel for the boredom and drudgery, as well as the danger and heroism, of real-life police work.

    Actor and producer Jack Webb's aims in Dragnet were for realism and unpretentious acting. He achieved both goals, and Dragnet remains a key influence on subsequent police dramas in many media.
