Quite enjoyable--the 12 separate short-story mysteries made it a good commute audio book. Hugh Fraser does an excellent job as narrator. Some of the stories were easier to figure out than others but Mr. Quin does remain a mystery.
It is a good classic mystery ruined by the narrator over acting. I almost gave up listening several times but the story kept me going in spite of the annoying narration.
Classic Sherlock Holmes--everyone knows the stories but with Derek Jacobi's performance they are fresh and entertaining. Excellent for family road trips.
The story really drew me in--I enjoyed it enough to listen to it three times. It is different and I liked it.
My husband has been listening to this book. He says it is a whole different world. It was slow going for him at first but now that he is connected into it--he has completely tuned me out and is listening at every chance. Be warned--lots of profanity
Narration by Hugh Fraser insures an excellent performance. The story is okay--a bit dated and romantic but still a Christie, entertaining and not vulgar.
Poignant, Classic, Unexpected
Hastings of course--the faithful, husband, father and friend. Trustworthy with a good character--not vain or coarse.
I always look first to see if Mr. Fraser is the narrator--as he never disappoints.
It made me cry--I think because i'm 60 and not 30. I understand nostalgia, regret and the hope that there still is a future with something to look forward to.
I enjoyed this historical mystery very much indeed and would recommend it.
The juxtaposition of current day and the time of Richard III
This is such a timely and well-reasoned discussion. I listen to it over and over and do not tire of it.
Not my favorite Pratchett but who cares any time I listen or read his work I not only smile but think.
