The best part is realizing that there are still a few people left on this earth that know and understand that compassion is the sum of every intelligence and Mr. Marrs is one of those people.
It reads like one long scathing indictment after another, with the same people behind it all. And it's a wonder how Mr. Pruden remains so calm instead of shouting.
Every aspect of this book is a classic. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.
Why, Mr.Sherlock Holmes of course. The narration is spot on with all of the characters. Mr. Vance is a marvelous story teller. I felt privileged just to listen to the story as it was written.
Yes. The scene at the house, just before it erupts into flames and Holmes puts his revolver down on the kitchen table. It makes no mention of him returning the weapon to his coat pocket so when he is confronted outside by the Ripper he is defenseless. Gripping...
Yes, I would still recommend this book simply for the content of the work.
John's narration was just fine until he tried to do characterizations using accents. The work became almost (cartoonish) and I think really took away from the subject matter at hand. It really would have been better just to read the story. I can imagine well enough on my own the voices of the people he was trying to emulate.
Is wincing an extreme reaction? Sigh...
