Michael Pritchard is one of the best voices out there for audiobooks and he's perfect for Nero Wolfe mysteries. This one has a pretty good plot and is worth a listen.
I would listen to this book again. Really interesting. Loved learning more about Garfield and what medicine was like during that time period. It's well written and well narrated. Fascinating stuff.
I knew nothing about James A. Garfield before listening to this. I really feel like the nation missed out in losing him so soon after he took office.
I thought that the descriptions of how the doctors took care of Garfield were so interesting. I don't want to spoil these scenes by describing them further, but it really is horrifying and tragic.
I love the authentic slice of New York in the early-to-mid 1900's that Rex Stout books supply - the way characters talk and dress, the lack of computers and cell phones; it's all very quaint and creates a cozy atmosphere for solving murders.
This was really awful. The presentation with the music and the silly "I-vant-to-drink-your-blood" voice for the main vampire made the story seem even more silly than I think I would have found it if I had read it rather than listened to it. Overall I do not think the story was worth reading or listening to. It was full of cliches and incredibly predictable.
