perverts perhaps although they would just as likely rent an adult movie.
no not ever. The story was not at all interesting. There was no mystery. The gratuitous sex was neither shocking nor believable.
all of it- sorry it just was not at all good.
Couldn't stand all the singing. Too much sexual content. Not really a mystery.
I have listened to almost all the other stories in the series. I didn't do them in order. If i had listened to this one first i would not have gone on. Really not to my taste at all.
The singing and sex scenes. I'm not a prude, but i don't like soft porn.

I listened to this on a long road trip and it made the boring driving trip pass quickly and almost painlessly - the pain came from the singing - as stated by another reviewer I couldn't turn the volume down quickly enough to ease my pain. I cannot state enough how much I hated the singing.
I love all of the Phryne Fisher books - they are great fun - and prove to be a good listen too.
Stephanie generally does a good job at voicing the characters, as I have already stated I'd be happier without the singing.
I wouldn't. I think it was very well-written, but it certainly wasn't a mystery. It is SO character-driven. The whole plot revolves around developing the main character, who I found irritating. It moved well, and there were moments of excitement. But not suspense and certainly not mystery.
I liked the period setting.
It's such a petty thing, but there was a lot of singing done by the (excellent) narrator. But the singing was atrocious, and often. It began to drive me out of my mind early in the narrative, and I found myself lurching up to turn the volume down, for fear that the neighbors could hear it. Maybe a small thing, but it really was a crazy-making deterrent in my mind.
