Prunella Scales is super but the book certainly isn't for everyone. No story line. No action. Rambling. Tedious. Save your credit/money.
The story was soooo unbelievable with a plot that was a total stretch. Hamish is a fairly good character but he's placed in such unbelievable situations that you just want him to go away. The reader was fine but that's not enough to compensate for this silly story.
Usually am delighted by Anne Perry's books. This one falls flat. The story is contrived, rather dull. Couldn't make it through more than half way in spite of the fine narration. Will certainly listen to more of hers but would skip this one.
Certainly not up to the standards of Anne Perry. Story line is soooo unconvincing. Can't imagine her characters doing anything they do in this irritating book. Do read Dorchester Terrace, though. She's in the groove again!
What a gloomy, slow, contrived story. The reader wasn't as bad as some other reviewers indicated but she had an impossible task. Depressed author passing on her misery to the audience.
What a shame this reader will discourage listeners from the joys of Anthony Trollope. She ruins the experience. Her voice only deserves these adjectives: monotonous, querulous, irritating, untrained. It's like having to sit through a 26-hour Christmas dinner with an elderly, dreary aunt.
He's always marvelous except this time. What a dismal story. Actually not much of a story. Just lots of water-logged misery. But Edward Herrmann is always a winner...and certianly not dry!
Had great expectations. Liked almost all of George's Inspector Linley. Respect her academic skills. Was disappointed in spite of the glowing reviews around the Net. Dreary and a dreary reader.
The topic had promise but the book was rambling, disorganized and, well, just plain dull. The reader tried hard but his enthusiasm was strained. Oh well....
Dreary, monotonous, pointless, irritating, dull, painfully boring (if boring can be classified as causing pain rather than just stupor)
