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
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.
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.
in an interesting setting (a time of extensive social upheaval). I enjoyed the over-top-ness of super-Phryne; she’s a wonderfully interesting and entertaining heroine. The relentless descriptions of her clothing were a bit tedious, but that’s me. The story was fun and intriguing, while nonetheless confronting the serious topics of abortion and women’s changing place in society. The secondary characters added depth and life. The narrator, Stephanie Daniel, did a fine job with the variety of accents, which added to the experience for me. The next book in the series is on my list.
