A wonderfully classic story.
I especially loved Poirot's voice by Hugh Fraser. Really well done.
It's a TV show and I found the show to be very similar to the book, not exactly my taste.
A well written book; but much like the region it's set it, the novel Cold Dish takes it's sweet time. I definitely appreciated the craft of the writer, but neither the plot or characters weren't seasoned to my taste. There is a lot of going back and forth over the same clues. 'Cold Dish' has a very nice, realistic touch to everything that happens. I think it's definitely a book worth trying if you like mysteries set in rural settings.
The book was just too slow for me and I had to push to get through. It's possible that I'm jaded by the jump-cut pace of many crime novels, but I found this Dish a bit too Cold for me.
Yes, it's enjoyable enough. Think airport fantasy novel.
Yes, though I wouldn't recommend it to everyone. The prose is salted with street vernacular that just threw me out of the story. It's no classic, but fans of fantasy & young adult novels should find the book entertaining.
I did find the plot to be enough to get me to read the next book.
Action adventure that's both fun and exciting.
I can't remember if I'd heard Scott before, but his narration on A Princess of Mars is spot on. Perfect for this book. I hope to get the entire series with him reading. Definitely recommend this book.
Richard Stark (alias for Donald E. Westlake) has such a unique voice. Everything is told through the criminal mind. Amazing and doesn't feel dated in the least.
