There are a few authors whose books I buy immediately without even reading the cover. And fewer who I will pre-order based on name alone. Elizabeth Peters is one of those authors. Her books are readable and of the best "who dunit" tradition.
As for Ms Rosenblat...to call her the best reader I have ever heard falls short of the mark. She is wonderful. Once you listen to her you cannot be satisfied with other duller, uni-dimensional narrators.
I have bought and enjoyed the Outlander series, so I fully expected to enjoy this audio version. I was wrong.
It was "abridged" too much, to the point where, if I hadn't already read the book, I would have gotten lost.
The final insult to injury was The Reader. Her voice and presentation was as exciting as watching paint peal.
Do yourself a favor, unless you are REALLY desperate for something to read, skip this one.
