Too descriptive which slowed the story up somewhat. The narrator had an annoying whine when some female characters were concerned. Very disappointed and has put me off these Banks' titles. I have bought others that have been better. But narrated by a different person. I'll try again once more. The storylines are good..........
James Langton has done a reasonable job. His interpretation of the female characters were a tad annoying in that they sounded similar and somewhat insipid. Some of the description of the scene were overdone to the point of getting tedious. The over use of swearing was boring and there was no need. So when used at certain critical points in book the impact was lost. A good yarn that keeps the listener interested.........But not on the edge of their seat.
What an insult to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle..........The worst narration I have ever encountered. The title should be removed and monies returned.
