Yes . For me history + detective + Patrick Tull is a hands down winner . Listen to Master and Commander series you will be immersed by Tull's narrative . So period .
It's good . Saw the video already so no surprises.
I have listened to perhaps 60 books +- 10 on audible . Many have him as narrator . And yes some are better than others . But if in your minds eye it's a British/English dialect being spoken he is a wonderful choice .
If there is a sale I would buy the rest of the series.
I enjoy the easy pace of Cadfael stories, the subtle humor, and historical perspective. A great twist at the ending. Great performance as well.
A Morbid Taste for Bones is a good story. Brother Cadfael, a Benedictine monk, reminds me a bit of television's Lt. Columbo. He knows what he is doing, but it doesn't always show - until he solves the mystery. This book could be described as a mystery for history lovers as it takes place in the 1130s.
A man dies under suspicious circumstances and although the evidence clearly shows who murdered the man, Brother Cadfael believes something is amiss, which it is, and he proceeds to prove it.
Patrick Tull's voice and manner of speaking may not be for everyone, but I found that both seemed to fit the period of the book and were very much to my liking. He speaks with a rather old English inflection and performs the various accents (mainly Welsh) very well. I liked his performance so much that I have searched out his reading of the other Brother Cadfael books when I need another.
This is the first entry in the Brother Cadfael series. It introduces most of the continuing cast of characters and is a delight in and of itself. Brother Cadfael, "retired" crusader turned monk and sometime detective is an enjoyable creation by Ellis Peters, and his adventures as a Benedictine Monk in both England and Wales have long be favorites with me.
In this book Brother Cadfael is part of a group traveling into Wales to hunt for the body of long dead Saint Winifred to return to his abby to inspire pilgrims to visit. The Welsh villagers aren't eager to loose their saint, murder takes place, and it is up to Brother Cadfael to find a solution that will bring a measure of justice, mercy, fairness and satisfaction to as many people as possible.
Patrick Tull does a good job of bringing Brother Cadfael and his friends to life.
