This is one of PD James best. Great characters, interesting story. Narration is excellent. Jayston is one of my favorite narrators.
his voice is mellow and he does different characters in a slightly different way so that it is easy to follow who is speaking when the author does not write in who says what. He rarely does a sudden change to the volumeof his voice (it is REALLY ANNOYING to have your eardrums blasted as some narrators do) .
leaves you hanging a bit at the end, but the story line is good and it makes you think.
narrator was great as usual. Story started out good, but dissolved into a boring romance, with a loud mouth female lead (I am a female, and could not stand her) that is supposed to be smart & educated, but cannot keep her mouth shut when it would benefit herself & her lover. Predictable ending.
have not & now will not
great as usual
anyone who likes the True Romance type of book.
Cannot believe that the Heroine captures the heart of the male lead-
unfortunately I purchased 3 before listening to any of them- the story descriptions sounded intruiging. Her voice is quite annoying at times, especially when she shreiks(!!!!).
perverts perhaps although they would just as likely rent an adult movie.
no not ever. The story was not at all interesting. There was no mystery. The gratuitous sex was neither shocking nor believable.
all of it- sorry it just was not at all good.
Red Herrings galore, a view into British Society of that day, realism. Narrator was excellent
This is Christie at her best. Emilia Fox does a superb job narrating, using subtle voice changes for each character which makes it easy to follow the dialogue.
annoying narration- trying to use different accents & voices. Distracted from the story. Would not buy another book narrated by Hugh Fraser.
