Prunella Scales is a fabulous narrator.
It was a classic that had a very slow pace with little action. I enjoyed the characters, but this is not my cup of tea.
Miss Smith, the narrator, was perfect, and, of course, Miss Mattie. I liked the maid, too, but she spoke so quickly that I could not understand all of what she said.
I liked the characters in the book and the unexpected events.
I will either read or listen to more books by this author.
A friend suggested Anna Pigeon mysteries and I have listened to several of them. I enjoy the settings of the National Parks and would recommend them to others who do.
I rarely figure out whodunit before Anna does. It keeps me thinking just like Anna throughout the book.
I enjoyed Barr's description of the lion cubs.
No -- I like to take my time.
This book was set in my home state of Texas, and that made it more enjoyable.
I enjoyed this creation of a younger but equally talented apprentice to Sherlock Holmes.
Mary Russell is quite a unique character in that she is a young woman who can hold her own with the master detective.
I love the voice she gave to Russell.
The author created several suspenseful situations that kept me riveted.
I did not care for the way Sterling read Holmes's voice, but I truly enjoyed the story. I have listened to one other Mary Russell book and will listen to more in the series.
The most shocking moment was when Dr. Minor operated on himself. I audibly gasped.
All characters interpreted by the author/narrator were memorable.
The whole story of the birth of the OED and the unlikely relationship of Drs. Murray and Minor is fascinating.
I also enjoyed the interview with the author/narrator and the editor of the OED.
