Yes, I probably will, but not until I have heard all of them first.
Not on the edge of my seat, but the plot is a page turner - if you can have that from a cd.I have listed to so many now that I feel that the stories are almost more of a biography of the Peabody Emerson family than simply murder/thrillers. That does not mean they are not great stories, because they are - and delight of delight - I have many more to go.
I think she actually adds another dimension to the great Elizabeth Peters stories. I am continually amazed at the variety of voices she brings to her reading to make the stories more than real. In fact I have wondered if she was not the only reader - but I know she is.Listening to her read, and I've heard her read several, makes me feel I almost know the characters because she has breathed extra life into them. She is a most gifted woman (somewhat like Peabody herself!)
I'm not sure what 'tag line' means.However what a brilliant BBC series these stories would make - there would be almost endless series. Fabulous scenery in Egypt with pyramids and so on as background. Back in the UK at the turn of the century and up to the 1920s - It would be a real winner.
I listen to these stories as I drive - the miles fly by!
Yes, because book two develops the characters that appear in later stories and I would like to gain a bit more background of them. Also the story is gripping.
Emerson's antics at the Fantasia. Also their decision at the end to take Ramses with them in future.
I like the series, but have only had the later ones read and so I was looking forward to hear the earlier books to set the scene, so to speak, for the later ones. Often I find myself smiling. Laugh out loud - not yet.
Has Ms Rosenblatt recorded all the books in the series?
