  • Uncle Fred in the Springtime

    Uncle Fred, or to give him his full title: Fredrick Altamont Cornwallis Twistleton, fifth Earl of Ickenham, is considered by some as a "splendid gentleman, a sportsman to his fingertips". Mr Twistleton, nephew to Earl, and otherwise known as "Pongo" to his friends, has a differing view. He simply describes his uncle as "being loopy to the tonsils".

    Story

    I enjoy PG Wodehouse immensely. This particular story is not my favorite. I think it's just too much of the same thing. Uncle Fred is pretending to be Roderick Glossup and he keeps running into people who know he's not Roderick Glossup and his story changes for each person.

  • Lion in the Valley: The Amelia Peabody Series, Book 4

    Story
    (482)

    Amelia Peabody, archaeologist and woman extraordinaire, should have greeted the approaching excavation with transports of joy. Nothing in the world could compare with exploring the muddy, musty corridors of some bat-infested pyramid. And at Dahshoor, to which she was headed, there existed some particularly fine specimens.

    Coffee Lover says: "A Delicious Confection"
    "Probably my favorite in the Amelia Peabody series"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Lion in the Valley to be better than the print version?

    Yes. Barbara Rosenblatt makes the characters come alive. She takes a fun melodramatic, historical fiction and makes it even more fun.


    What did you like best about this story?

    All the characters are at their feistiest.


    Have you listened to any of Barbara Rosenblat’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    She is always good. I first heard her do Mrs. Polifax mysteries and was amazed that she could do men, women, and many different accents.

    The Mysterious Affair at Styles introduces Hercule Poirot, mystery fiction's greatest detective. Dapper, brilliant Monsieur Poirot, retired as the Chief of Belgian Police, is summoned to a magnificent English country estate to solve a murder. The victim: a wealthy heiress. The suspects: her fortune-hunting husband, her jealous relatives, even her hired companion. The solution: a deadly scheme that is revealed by the master detective himself.

    Adrian says: "Fantastic - Suchet is the best"
    "Love narrator, not my favorite Agatha Christie."

    Story
    Would you try another book from Agatha Christie and/or David Suchet?

    yes.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Don't know.


    What about David Suchet’s performance did you like?

    He is a great narrator. Each character clearly has their own voice. He can do any nationality or dialect.


    Was The Mysterious Affair at Styles worth the listening time?

    yes.
