    Story
    (184)

    Cadfael's return to his Welsh homeland for a visit proves a rather discomfiting homecoming when an honorable nobleman turns up in a patch of forest with an arrow embedded in his chest. There are questions about the arrow, the man's daughter needs Cadfael's help, and a very odd burial takes place.

    Zenjen says: "Very pleasant if not much of a mystery."
    "Great Listen, Funny, Super Plot!"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The first in a long series of historic mysteries that keep you want to experience the adventures of this stout old monk. The narrator makes you see the different characters easily. The different people in the story are well developed and become real and complex. The author is in this story especially able to let the listener step back and look at the happenings with a human and wistful view. One of my most favorite listens ever.


    What other book might you compare A Morbid Taste for Bones to and why?

    To Say Nothing To Say About The Dog. by Connie Willis. This book is much slower in pace, but has also great writing and fun.


    What does Patrick Tull bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Tull makes Catfael rounder and sturdier and more humorous and human, more forgiving.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes

    Cantankerous and vinegar-tongued Grandmama, from Anne Perry's Charlotte and Thomas Pitt series, is the leading character in this Christmas novel, which unfolds in the chilly, windswept Romney Marshes off the English Channel. Grandmama arrives on a holiday visit to the home of Charlotte's parents, where a fellow guest--an outcast from her own family--is subsequently murdered. Like the heroes before her in Anne Perry's Christmas novels, Grandmama is called upon to play the role of amateur detective.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It is a great breakout story from the usual inspector Pitt series. The despicable grandmother has a chance to become known to the reader. She has a chance to show her metal as an investigator and maybe Charlotte isn't the only one in the family with a brain. It is a great listen especially if you know Pitt but stands quite on its own, too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked it because it gave me a chance to know another member of the "Pitt" family.


    Have you listened to any of Terrence Hardiman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I liked it a lot


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Could be an introduction to the series.

  • A Touch of Dead: Sookie Stackhouse: The Complete Stories

    New York Times best-selling author Charlaine Harris has re-imagined the supernatural world with her "spunky" (Tampa Tribune) Southern Vampire novels, starring telepathic waitress Sookie Stackhouse. Now, for the first time, here is every Sookie Stackhouse short story ever written - together in one volume. The stories include "Fairy Dust", "One Word Answer", "Dracula Night", "Lucky" and "Giftwrap".

    A User says: "Good read after Sookie's series"

    Overall

    I have listened to all nine Sookie books and very much enjoyed them. Listening to this collection of storries helped to fill in a few holes that seemed to be evident in the series. That was great! Alas,I fear that just listening to the short stories without the knowledge of the series ahead of time would not be best introduction to a new reader. The stories might wet one's tongue for more but also give some details of the books in the series away. Read the book after the series.
