Easy listening story for a drive or chores that gives a glimpse into older workings of CIA. Great characters--reader effectively differentiates character voices.
Listened to it all in one listen just about. Barbara Rosenbladt is the perfect narrator for this series! She NAILED MRS POLLIFAX ! As well as all the other voices she really is a fantastic talent! Don't think I could listen to another if they switched her out so I haven't looked but I hope she reads the entire series. Great fun but not so silly. Over the top and not believable but it all works!
I accidentally started this series with the second book, which I LOVED, and came to find the first. I was thrilled to find at least a dozen in this series! They are light, yet exciting in many places, humorous and captivating. I listen while I work and I'm always happy to find stories I'd like to hear over and over. Now on to book three!
Excellent book. The narration was great & the characters came to life. I highly recommend this book to anyone who thinks "old people" have no value. I want to be just like Mrs Pollifax when I'm that age. Sweet, feisty & unstoppable ~ she's an elderly super hero. 😃
I love how the author shares Mrs. Polifax's emotions and thoughts as the story unwinds. Mrs. P's reactions and actions make sense and are realistic even though the premise of the stories should be far-fetched. Mrs. Polifax's view on life is refreshing and makes me want to read on and on to see where she goes and how she handles her next adventure.
These stories would make a great TV series - The Adventures of Mrs. Polifax
Careful these books are addictive!
I want to be Mrs Polifax. Fun to listen to. Easy read for when life gets busy and you don't want to think, you just want to be entertained.
Absolutely loved this whole series. Narration was great except for the last book in the series. Loved the locations and the detailed description about the people, customs, and traditions. Mrs. Pollifax character was a delight and loved her. Listened to the series twice through I enjoyed it so much. The narrator was so good, I can't imagine that reading the books would have been nearly as enjoyable.
A pot of geraniums on a rooftop is as unlikely a start to a wonderful adventure as is the heroine in this spy thriller. Ms. Rosenblatt gives another five star performance.
