I like Maisie Dobbs and the emphasis on early investigative psychology. Predictable storyline needs speed in the telling..
I am a woman who loves to read and to listen to books. I want to be entertained and taken to another place when I listen..
I love Maisie Dobbs...this book takes you to another time and also Maisie's life as a child. The narrator is perfect and the book was perfect!!
I am such a fan of these books now. Clean, fun, intriguing. I do wish though that they author wouldn't try to bait you so much with some details by teasing you with info she finds without tell you what it is, feels a bit too contrived. Still fun though.
I enjoyed this story, mostly because of the narrator and a likable protagonist. It held my attention and I was interested to see where it was going. It didn't go where I expected (a bit of a downer), but it ended nicely. Worth a listen if you like historic or wartime stories more than mysteries.
I liked the story, and the reader did an outstanding job. But it was a little too much like a "chick flick" for my taste.
Interested in everything. Listening for something AMAZING...
The story and plot line were interesting and it is certainly a wholesome kind of detective novel, in the genre of Sherlock Holmes. The title character was very likable and the story of her upbringing was interesting. I'll look forward to reading the next novel in the series.
I was a little disappointed in the narration. It sometimes seemed as if she wasn't paying attention to what she was reading and the tone of her voice finished a sentence before the actual end. The remainder of the same sentence seemed like an afterthought. It happened enough times that it distracted me from the story. Also, except for the American accent, there was not much variation in the characters' voices. I would be willing to try another book from the same narrator to see if this was a one book occurrence. All in all, I was glad I bought it.
