The lady who reads the story has an annoying way of turning up at the end of almost every sentence. You get used to it after a while, but it grates on you a bit
Retired. My hobbies are knitting, sewing and sports. To busy doing hobbies to be able to read so audible books are great for me. Also enjoy listening when driving on a long road trip.
This series is based in Australia, yet reader doesn't try in the least to bring any accent into her reading. Really takes a great deal from story.
Yes as above I've enjoyed two seasons of the series on Netflix. So I wanted to listen to the books.
So many readers love this series; however, I have no interest in continuing with it. It’s not that interesting to me and the story seemed somewhat silly. Some say the television series is much better than the books, so I’ll have to check it out some day.
Definitely. I have all but 5 books of the series in my library and I can't gush enough about the stories or the narrator. Even though I know who the murderer (or criminal) is at the end, Phryne's spirit and integrity and bad-ass class is enough to keep me around, even if it's hanging around listening to stories I've heard before. (After all, isn't that what we do for our friend's? Listen to the same stories over and over?)
Phryne and Dot and the Butler's, Jack Russell, and the doctor, and...all of them. Phryne is my hero and I would like to believe that I'd be that bad ass in the same situation as her's: tons o' money but making the world a better place.
As above, I've got all but 5 of the Phryne series in my library and I love them all.
Phryne; she would know the best place to go and the best dishes and she would be known and feared/loved by the chef so I know we'd get something excellent. I imagine she would also be full of great stories and I'd be willing to listen to them all.
I initially held off listening to this series. I'd just completed Kerry Greenwood's "Corinna Chapman" series and being so enamored of that series, I was afraid that this one wouldn't measure up, but I am so glad I took the chance and began listening. I love British and Australian accents so I was in bliss for the couple of months it took to get through both series.
