If you enjoy listening to audio books and you love mysteries this is a good audio book for you. It is longer than most audio books, however, when I am driving I can listen to it and relax.
As most mysteries, you have several possible suspects to choose from through out the story. I can usually figure out the suspect long before the end of the story. It was not so for this book. It kept me guessing up to the end.
This book was a delightful departure from my usual Agatha Christie. Set in India, it gave the reader insight into that culture and dialects.
I liked all the major characters, but Facecream was my favorite.
I liked all the ladies at the party that had the theft.
As a non-Indian who has spent a year in India I got such a kick out of these characters who are so unique and quirky, but also so typical of certain types that you meet there. I loved the way the author captured the special turns of phrase and expressions of Indian English.The sights and sounds, the smells and tastes of Delhi are so vividly expressed. The reader was excellent.Thoroughly enjoyable.
This was perfect for me, because I love mysteries, and I love India. I'm familiar with the Delhi locations and the cultural references. Might be a little confusing for people who don't have this connection to India, but it's an entertaining listen/read nonetheless. It's light and fun, and keeps you guessing. I am definitely looking forward to more stories from this author.
Yes because the reader was so good with the different voices.
The investigator because of the humor in his character.
Great accents and really got into the different characters' voices.
Certain ones. Not all like this kind of mystery. It's kind of fluffy.
This was a nice change from the other mysteries I'm used to reading or listening to. I usually read Robert Ludlum, Christopher Reich etc. You get my drift. Very intense and hard to put down. This was a casual listen.
Give me a spy novel, mystery, history, and a little science and I'm totally happy
Though I started with the assumption that I'd be drawn into the mystery, I never found much to keep me awake. I even repeated a few chapters with hopes that I'd missed something. Sorry.
Sam Dastor is a great reader, fabulous with accents. It is a fun and amusing novel.
Very high marks
I enjoyed the characters and facts about I nDian culture
Buy it you won't be disappointed
This is a light, easy to listen while driving story. It ranks fairly highly of those books I've listened to, but I am such an avid reader and listener - with at least four books going at all times - that I could only rank order those that I really disliked.
The characters are well-drawn. It is not an tension filled type of mystery, but that is likely not the goal of the author anyway. It's very much a character driven tale.
The reader does such an excellent job with all of the characters it's hard to pick.
This book has a lot of humor in it, and I did find myself chuckling as I tooled to and from work.
