Reliving the experience of the story, which I had read when it was first published.
The narrrator captures the voice very well and the story flows effortlessly.
Enjoyable mix of mystery, regional awareness and love story. New York policewoman in French aristocratic milieu, highlights differences in murder investigation procedures. Captivating story and characters. The narrator, Kathe Mazur is first rate in both French & English. Fought hard to stay awake till it was resolved. Parting left unfinished. Perhaps we will hear more in future books
The very best story I have read in years. Not usually my subject but the review hooked me. Literally could not turn it off. The devotion of dog and handler is told so sympathetically.
Emotional and compelling.
There is too much description of every kind.Chapter 91 and still on day 3 of murder enquiry, which is hardly touched on.
I first read this book in 1962, and have so enjoyed the listening. Nevil Shute is an excellent story-teller, and the narrator Norman Dietz brings forth Mr. Hargreaves just as I had imagined him. You can almost feel the dampness from the constant rain. The Outback in the post-war time, the difficulty of travel, are so vivid. The possible future that is proposed is of course impossible but was interesting at the time of writing.
One of the best stories in my stash and very well told. I still have the original book and have read it three times.
Of course, Si Morley as the protagonist is so willing to believe that there is something more than this present life. But Rubin Prien can charm the birds.
This is the first experience with Paul Hecht's performance and it is dead on.
Yesterday is just across Central Park
Also, check out the sequel, From Time To Time, also available in audible's list.
Learning about the culture of Judaism was a major plus to the story
There was an urgency to find the perpetrator in a closed community
Mr. Greenberg conveyed the dignity and suspense inherent in the book. Perfect pitch
It kept me up all night
Will definitely purchase more in this series
