Corey Solves Another.
John Corey is a great character, which DeMille has used in several books. His dry humor and stoicism are done very well.
Brick captures the ambiance of the setting and characters very well.
I like DeMille's books and have read several, so got this story to try out audible.com. I enjoyed it, although it's perhaps not his best work. Still, it is worthwhile for a quick listening experience.
I enjoyed the delivery of the reader, which added to the story.
The plot was great, even though I saw the movie years ago.
The beginning sort of hooked me on the story. It started as an interesting premise. Later in the story the plot lost me. I found it at some point to get too far fetched.
The performance was okay, but not up to Brick's high standard.
depends on the actors. it could make a good movie.
The reader was excellent. The story started very strongly, but there came a point when it went too far. The reader saved it for me.
Good characters, good start and ending, but becomes far fetched at one point.
The reader did a very good job on the voices.
The plot was interesting, but confusing at times, convoluted, so pay attention, and if you lose it, go back.
I liked his Watson, and he did a good job on most.
As I said above, pay attention. At one point I was lost because I went a few days without listening and there are confusing elements, lots of characters. Overall a very good listen.
Great plot. Good performance. Some reviewers didn't agree, but I felt it was just right.
My first experience with Heinlein and I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The characters are well developed and I was impressed with the thoughtfulness. This is not just a SciFi book. Of course, if you can't go there (to SciFi) then this is not for you.(I'm 64, read SciFi when younger, and bought this audible book on a whim, just to see what Heinlein was like. It surprised me.)
