Emphatically yes, if you love Christie and the egg-shaped head detective this will not disappoint.
The story takes twists and turns that keep your listening attention.
We listened to this book last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed the plot and the way this narrator brought HP to life. Good job in our opinion.
Black Coffee isn't just black coffee.
Please add the Susanna York recording of Pride and Prejudice to the audible library. It is on a par with the Nadia May version.
The reading is good. The scripture must be narrated according to punctuation - like all reading it's key to understanding. This recording is, for the most part, true to the punctuation. However, the primary fault is navigation -- selecting what you want to listen to. You really don't know where you are in the book. It's most annoying.
This question is irrelevant to this book in my opinion.
Again, irrelevant IMO.
Yes, I've watched most of the Bible movies.
The reading is good.
This is a dramatized version of the story, so if you're looking for the book -- it's not this one. but quickly add -- I enjoyed it immensely. I often listen to dramatized versions of Christie, Dickens, and other favorites when I am busy doing mindless work like laundry and cleaning. This one is a keeper, and what a surprised ending.
The end of course; shocking! The recording is punctuated with post WWII era music which I liked as well.
These dramatized versions are second only to film.
The killer was a shock, and more than that -- the reasons given for their commission.
Highly recommend for the long drive; very affordable entertainment in my view.
Emphatically yes. In our home we read this story annually at Christmas, and this year we were privileged to listen to this most excellent recorded version.
Simon Prebble is an excellent narrator; he reads so well and easily draws in listeners. I think even Dickens would be well pleased with this recording.
Prebble is one of the best. I often look through his list to select an audio.
This story always makes me reflect on the season and remember its Reason.
I highly recommend this one. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
I have books by both Rush and his brother David.
I don't know that I would "compare" this book with another in the way I think the question suggests, but Liberty is certainly a hoot! Time travel and talking horses bring Narnia to mind for me.
yes, but I caution -- this is a kid's story. Get some kids talking about this book - IMO.
Yes, IMO this would be a great way to get the family around a book; winding down a Thanksgiving Day - making a memory and getting straight history to boot!
Definitely not, I don't give a fig for Jack Welch's personal life. I expected to hear about how he made GE work better, not how he threw his family over because he grew apart from them, his sleeping habits with a woman much younger than himself, his mother and father, row home living , and how he was just a regular guy.
HOW DID HE MAKE GE work better. IMO it wasn't there. Sounded to much like a "come clean and get all this off my chest" story instead of the get it done mechanics of making a bureaucratic intense organization -- that does stupid, cost inefficient things all the way up the food chain --work at the root.
Mr. Barnicle did a good job of reading,.
The parts that really talked to the very dramatic reorganization and restructuring of GE. Can't deny that part the guy got right and GE employees were the big winners; they had good jobs and were part of something great for awhile. But, I have to add -- I know an appliance repair man that wouldn't give a dollar for GE products; of course that's now -- not when "Hatch" was at the wheel.
This is somewhat misleading and I noticed to late that it was only 7 minutes long. Hey, she was an American in the British Parliament and a divorcee.
At this point, I wouldn't try this author again. Just my opinion.
This wasn't a book; and I noticed to late.
The reader did a fine job.
