I would. This was the best of the A Death In series so far. The story is a favorite and the reader was very good. I hope audible will produce the other two books. Death In The Andamans is the best of the lot with A Death In Kenya a close second.
I loved every character in this story. The old lady who wore the eccentric clothing might be my fave.
No. She has a beautiful voice. I like hearing her read. It's too bad she didn't read all of them.
There were a few parts that made me snicker a bit. It was just a fun read. M M Kaye has the ability to take you to all those exotic locales and make you feel as if you are there, and to a period in time that seems better than ours somehow. I will read anything she's written. These mysteries represent her wonderful writing without a huge investment of 700 pages or so.
No, nough said
I believe it would be,because of the reader. I liked her rendition very much.
I suppose the final scene where Grace and Sooner are held hostage.
Yes. I can't remember the title. The book was by the same author. She read that well too.
It was in the beginning when Mariah was murdered. I could hardly listen it was so horrible.
If you are wanting a suspenseful listen I can't recommend this author enough. The reader Ms. Parker is also excellent.
This series is right up there at the top. I love everything about the series. The reader is fantastic. Each story is so much fun. I work in a University Library and these books are popular checkouts.
Our Heroine manages to get her and her trusted servants in more trouble doing the Queens bidding. These are very well researched books. You get a real feel for what every day life was like in Elizabethan England,plus an exciting story.
Nadia May is a real peformer.I love listening to her.
Adventures of a spy in Elizabethan England
This is a big series,yet we have gotten only four books.I have been checking for a long time now and still only four.When will we get a fifth.
Yes,because Mr. Andrews was a great reader.I'm pretty critical,so I don't say that very often.
Yes, from the first chapter in Afganistan. This book is very suspenseful ,but the wonderful thing about it is the way the author portrays things from a dog's perspective.Sometimes this kind of thing is hokey or sentimental, but not here. Crais obviously understands dogs. I feel sure we will get a sequel to this one. I can't wait.
He transitions smoothly between man and dog.Each one is distinct and believable. When I listen to an audio book I want to hear a performance. Mr. Andrews gave a performance.Kudos to you Mr. Andrews and to audible for picking a good reader.
I almost did,but I had to go to work.
This story kept me guessing for a long time. I also really liked this cast of characters.The book was very like Dean Koontz.That is a compliment to the author,in my opinion.
No. I loved this reader. He was a big part of my enjoyment of this book. He's a keeper. I will be looking for Mr.Porter.
Not really. It was a book that builds suspense from the first page.There were lots of moments between characters that were moving.You must suspend belief through most of this book. That's the fun of it really,or you'll be constantly saying to yourself "why don't these people just move".
That is hard to say. I listened to Exodus many years ago with a different reader. I liked that version better. This reader was good,though. I gave him four stars. The book is an all time favorite. I read it many years ago and fell in love with Israel and Leon Uris. I love all his books.I would love to see you do QBVII.
The history of the Holocaust and the building of the state of Israel.The characters and their trials stay with you for a long time.This is a very heartwrenching book. If you don't want a lump in your throat,don't bother with this one.
This was a smooth performance. The only critique I could think of,was a slight lack of passion.That might be my taste. When I read Uris I always feel over the top emotionally.It was a wee bit dry to me.
Yes! I could hardly stop even though I had read the book and listened to it before.Leon Uris is a very exciting writer.If you haven't read him before,Exodus is the one to start with.
Yes for M M Kaye,and No for Soneela Nankani
It would have if I could of gotten past the reader. This book was not new to me. I have been a fan of M M Kaye's books for a long time and have read this on more than one occasion.
Davina Porter or
Kate Reading( good readers must not only have the voice but the acting chops.Oh my goodnes what a Davina Porter would have done with these books.)
Well, since M M Kaye died in 2002 I don't think that is going to happen,besides sequels are usually not very good. This book had a good ending and was complete.
If you had asked that of The Far Pavillians I would say it could have gone on forever. I would be very happy.I love M M Kaye and wished this book had gotten a better treatment.She deserves a well known and experienced reader.
The person or team choosing these readers is not very good.I hate to say this. I bought these immediately as they came out with such excitement. I didn't want to be negative.I love audible. Most of the books I have bought have been very good. The readers of Death in Berlin and Death in Cyprus were pretty good, especially Death in Cyprus.I will be watching out for the other two and be sure not to buy any thing they read.
Probably not. I generally like to move on to something else.
This book was written in the 1950's and is still so relevant today.the main character is a true sociopath. He could step into any current novel. At the time this was written it must have been a very shocking story, somewhat like the great Patricia Highsmith.
He's very good!
No, it didn't make me laugh or cry but it was very suspenseful.
I enjoyed this book. I'm an Ira Levin fan,but had never read this book. I believe he was only in his twenty's when he wrote this. I would love it if you would produce The Stepford Wives,one of Ira's best.
the story itself made it enjoyable. The reader was infinitely better than the reader of A Death In Kashmir.
The heroine of course
The reader was good,but I'm still looking for that cultured British accent
The dramatic ending in the old house
that is all
No! Wonderful book
M M kaye's mysteries have the charm of Daphne Du Maurier and the fun of Agatha Christie
It was not,but only because the reader literally buthchered it.I asked audible to please try and get these mysteries. A death in Berlin and Zanzibar are worth a listen.I will try all they get of the wonderful M M Kaye.Her biographies would be a welcome as well. These books are meant to be read by a cultured British voice. They were read in the 90's by Virginia Mckenna to great effect. They are all about British colonialism. The heroines are British. The main characters are British not Hindi . Ms Ghosh might be fine reading a book from an Indian's perspective.
