Yes, I read the book at least 2x I find the entire series fun and buying the audio has been worth not listening to teen music in the background at home or blaring whatever muzak is on nearby cars on the way to work.
very mean spirited. I thought i was going to hear an entertaining inspector and instead got a negative story. This inspector might be okay and his wife interesting but the story was NOT what I like.
Oh Missy just too quickly does she do her tricks and too easily does she get out of trouble. Drug sellers are just not quite that stupid no matter where you are .
you'll just get hooked and buy the other 2 even with this narrator. Gets a little better but NOT MUCH later
only problem i had is all the characters pretty much sounded the same... so
i just modified my process as though the story were being told by 'Miss Marple'
aka Joan Hickson.
The story is one of my favorites -- tracking back and forth where you cannot possibly believe Elenior to be guilty. The trap is set quite well by Ms Agatha. The presentation of characters and nuances of intonation by Mr Suchet just crown the story
Queen Elizabeth aka 'Sword of Steel' sounded like Minnie Mouse ..... or other female Disney character
Hopefully i wont hear it much! I liked the book and wanted to have somthing for the summer. Be Warned! Great book - narrator not so good
I have to listen to this while I drive as the narrator just DOES NOT make it. What a shame. While it does get a bit better in the Mallorean - i'm still hurt the narrator does not have the range perhaps too many characters.
I don't know if it was a waste or not, i've read the books so many times at least i'm entertained while i drive
only mispent irritated missed the hyperlink to download -- what's with them?
still lots of research, you could just go to chapter 20 and listen to the advice and while driving in traffic and frustrated by a train keeping you more than 10 min listen to prior than 20.
The audio proceeds along a course which is accessible to us regular human beings and stresses simple points. You can do this as a 5 minute break, eating your breakfast, drinking your tea and living in the day to day world. It's wonderful and totally not spooky or off in the ozone. We even bought all the videos available. He is GREAT!
