I chose to get The Borrowers to play during a long drive with my parents (74 years old) and my 17-year-old daughter. The story was as wonderful as I remembered and it was a treat to have it read in Rowena Cooper's marvelous British accent. Even my father, who seldom reads any fiction, enjoyed it! Now my daughter and I have been listening to the sequels whenever we drive together, and it is a marvelous bonding experience.
I had read this one as a paperback back in the nineties. I think that I picked it up in an airport on a trip and was enthralled -- staying up until I finished it. When I joined Audible, Michael Connelly was recommended to me as being like some of the other authors I read. I hadn't realized that there was a series in which this was the third book until then, so I decided to listen to them in order. This one matched the first two in plot, characters and suspense -- even though I had read it before! Now I have just finished number four and I am about to get number 5. 3 cheers for this third adventure of Detective Hieronymus Bosch!
Great characters, plot
Harry's flashbacks to his Viet Nam experience
It was easy to tell the characters apart and usually his voice was just part of the story.
I was really disappointed in the characters who betrayed their values.
The lost star in "performance" was because I didn't like the voice of the female protagonist.
It's the first audiobook I've listened to on my Kindle, but it's definitely superior to the 2 I listened to on CD. I won't mention the ones I used to listen to on cassette tapes...
Harry's first contact with Bob!
No basis for comparison, but he did a great job!
The scene in Denny's with Molly.
