The first in a long series of historic mysteries that keep you want to experience the adventures of this stout old monk. The narrator makes you see the different characters easily. The different people in the story are well developed and become real and complex. The author is in this story especially able to let the listener step back and look at the happenings with a human and wistful view. One of my most favorite listens ever.
To Say Nothing To Say About The Dog. by Connie Willis. This book is much slower in pace, but has also great writing and fun.
Tull makes Catfael rounder and sturdier and more humorous and human, more forgiving.
Any suggestions for books like that?
