I like these stories, my first time reading any Father Brown. They are entertaining and easy to read. BUT why have the street noises, footsteps, birds singing, etc so loud you must strain to hear the dialog. If the radio players want to have these sound effects, great but they should be more in the background. I like the stories, and voices otherwise.
entertaining, sweet, educational
The breech birth scene was so intense and exactingly told I could not put this down. In fact the entire book went by too fast. I think people of all ages would enjoy these stories all from the 1950's East End of London
all of it
no I would not recommend this book. The voices are too hard to follow and the story is dragging I don't even want to finish the book. I like CJ Critt. I've listened to other series and her voices are perfect, so I don't know if it's the characters here or the story... BUT I don't want to hear more
yes, because the story was entertaining and funny.
Not on the edge but certainly entertained.
EVERYTHING she is great! I could not imagine another person reading this. She is these people!!!
Nor take off the headphones. From the very moment they start I'm hooked. I like Scott Bricks voice. I like the story's the suspense, heroics, humor, and grit.
It started a little slow, then went on interminably. I kept waiting and waiting for the story to really start and it never did. Someone else wrote this was a 16 hour introduction for the next book, and they were correct. Forget this one and read the next Dead or Alive. The narration was OK, though I prefer Michael Prichard or Scott Brick. the problem with this book was not the narrator.
I wasn't sure if I would like these radio-stories or not. I do. In fact I like them quite a bit and hope more come to audible. I've enjoyed reading a lot of the books in print and I think Jerry Robbins does great justice to Perry Mason. I always found that in the books Perry was more edgy than the TV version. In fact when you read the books you really see WHY the DA hates Perry so much.... These dramatizations are definitely show this side of Perry too.
I would recommend someone READ a hard copy of this book if this is the only audio version available. Great story, as usual from Clancy, poor robotic, monotone narration. It has been a struggle to pay attention.
Great story, but I did not care for this narrator. I prefer Barbara Rosenblat and her varied character voices. That is the only reason I gave this book a 3 rating. The Emerson-Peabody clan is again involved in an interesting mystery. This time far away from Cairo, or the valley of the kings. The family ventures to Sudan and a mysterious oasis in search of an Englishman and his wife. What they find is intrigue, political power-plays and a people practicing the religion of ancient Egypt.
