Heard just about all the Spenser books so decided to give a listen to Parker's new hero - Jessie Stone. Turned out to be a great choice. Stone has all of Spenser's knowhow but is a lot more flawed - and more human. Very easy to identify with. The mystery was also excellent and had me guessing to the end.
Fascinating speculation. Just hope it turns out to be true?
The usual Wodehouse, i.e. wonderful?
I got this because it was a required reading for my Special Needs English class and they were having a tough time reading it on their own. It certainly did the trick and promoted lots of discussion and creative writing. I'll have to try this approach more often. It turned a painful experience for my kids into a great learning experience.
Great selection of tales. Some readers better than others but, overall, very creepy.
My son recommended this book to me and I tried to read it. I found it very confusing so got the audio version, hoping that might make it easier to follow.
It didn't. Reader did a good job but there were just so many strange people, places and relationships to follow that I just gave up.
I always liked Clinton and enjoyed the book.
However, I really wished the unabridged version was available.
Fascinating book certainly gave me a lot to think about.
This is one of the few Dickens books I had not read and it turned out to be the usual Dickens i.e. Wonderful. Well read, also.
I tired reading this but stopped because of the rather difficult syntax. However, the audio version made it much easier to understand since the reader did all the work. I thought she did a very good job.
Very creepy stories. Well done and well read.
