    (140)

    In investigating the poisoning of a young man in a bookshop at the Eastern Market, and the wrongful arrest of one Miss Sylvia Lee, Phryne Fisher is plunged into a world of Jewish politics, alchemy, poison, and chicken soup. Stopping only for a brief but intensely erotic dalliance with the beautiful Simon Abrahams, Phryne picks her way through the mystery with help from the old faithfuls: Bert, Cec, Dot, and Detective Inspector "Call Me Jack" Robinson.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Raisins and Almonds to be better than the print version?

    I have not read a print version but I think the performance is a big part of my enjoymentment


    Would you recommend Raisins and Almonds to your friends? Why or why not?

    I wouldn't recommend it because there was too much description of the sexual aspect of the story.


    What does Stephanie Daniel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voice and inflections bring a personality to the charaacters that would be missing in print.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No

    Farahad Zama's debut novel transports listeners to faraway India for a story brimming with endearing characters, homespun wisdom, and blossoming love. After Mr. Ali retires, he launches a matchmaking service that helps an array of clients arrange marriages. But he's unaware of his able assistant's dire need for his marriage bureau.

    What did you like best about this story?

    One of the best things about the book was that it covered more than one aspect of Indian society. The wedding customs of several groups were described in detail and with a personal touch. You felt like no one was judging the merits of any religion or group.

    By following the stories of individuals you caught a glimpse of the difficulties and struggles that various people in India face. It put a face and a emotional value on the problems as well as the good aspects of Indian life..


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I was always anxious to get back to the story when I had to stop.
