I found this life-changing and mind-expanding when I first saw the series on PBS in 1991. Listening to it again makes me want to buy the DVDs. Campbell is nothing less than amazing.
I also stayed up way too late listening to this one. Hugh Fraser is a fantastic reader and the story is full of 'edge of your seat' suspense. Christie was a master!
Barbara Rosenblatt is the perfect Amelia. She's also the perfect Emerson, Evelyn and all the other characters. Her range as a narrator is astounding and she rivals Jim Dale (in the Harry Potter series) for her ability to completely inhabit a character. Warning: Elizabeth Peters' Amelia Peabody series is addictive. I wish Audible would make all the books available with Ms. Rosenblatt.
You are hearing the memories of men well past the age of 100 who are among the last surviving WWI vets. A very appropos listen for Veteran's Day.
Unbelievably good. I thought the narrator was excellent.
Like the other reviewer said, I had no idea how to answer the "Tell me about yourself" question until I heard this tape. It really helped me prepare for an interview with a top company. It had lots of other good advice but it was worth it just to know how to answer that one question.
One of the better audiobooks I've purchased. Ms. Margolyes is a wonderful narrator and she is able to create believable voices for all the characters.
Simon Prebble is a fantastic narrator and Caleb Carr really does justice to Conan Doyle's characters. An excellent listen!
Narrator does an excellent job!!
