I don't think so...the narrator's voice wasn't as soothing as I prefer, and the story was a bit dry.
It was worth the wait!
Yes, she was very good at all the accents and age differences.
I'd rent the DVD.
so much fun! Light-hearted,easy romp. It's holiday fun full of romance, old-fashion English festivities and murder!!! Very enjoyable. Looking forward to the entire series.
I heart mysteries, political non-fiction, and memoirs, especially all in one book.
Katherine Kellgren's narration is so compelling, it makes up for the simplistic ending to this mystery. I am not one to listen to books that are a part of a series; I feel there are generally better, more unique books to be had that don't require a substantial time commitment. That said, this book stands well on its own and is a nice diversion for listeners looking for something easy for the holidays.
Yes. The narrator brings each character to life. It is as if the people are there in the room with you. The listener is kept interested until the very end, and I especially enjoyed the Christmas theme.
The previous installments are equally as good. Rhys Bowen has maintained the story line by really making the listener love each and every character, and want to follow them over time from novel to novel.
So well done I find it hard to believe that all of those voices came from one performer. Kudos to her talent!
Impoverished Lady Georgie once again gets in over her head in trying to solve murders that stump the professionals. But she never forgets her ties to royalty, or to the man she loves.
Yes. I have enjoyed the series. It is a good mystery told by interesting characters and the narrator makes it very enjoyable.
The plot kept me wondering and interested at all times.
I enjoy seeing the characters develop over time. This is what makes me wait anxiously for the next in the series.
Edit out most of the first hour. It was pretty boring. I had to force myself to continue listening. And there were too many murders. I would also have recorded the section containing the recipes and game instructions that were part of the print book. I feel a little cheated.
I might try reading the first book in the series to see if that would hook me into reading more. Most people praise the first couple of books.
The scenes with her grandfather and with her maid were the most amusing, but nothing stands out as a favorite.
I'd probably watch it if it were on TV, but I wouldn't pay to see it.
The narrator is fantastic. Her performance was the only thing that kept me listening until the end of the book. I will definitely look for more books with this narrator.
All of Rhys books are easy and fun to listen to. I must say that the narration of the older women were a little hard to listen to, but overall a good performance. Was glad to get her latest book and was not disappointed.
Rhys Bowen can tell a great story, this one as usual had quite a few laughs and smiles. love the characters which are developed so well, Katherine Kellgren rates a 6 star for all the accents
Good story line, entertaining, liked the voices.
Phryne Fisher Series
One of her better ones, but I have liked them all.
