I would definitely listen to another book narrated by Roslyn Alexander. Not sure about Dorothy Gilman. I have mixed feelings about her.
I found that the characters were more characterizations than real. The 60's radicals, the gangsters and even the nuns seemed to fit into the mold. In the beginning it was amusing, but by the end it seemed tedious and predictable.
Her ability to make each character unique. It was not difficult to identlfy who was speaking.
It must have been because I did finish it, which I don't if I don't like the story at all so I gave it 3 stars.
I will listen to this again for sure. I love the series and Susan Boyce did a fantastic job bringing the characters to life.
I especially like Kit as she has a special wonder about the world around her. All the cats are wonderful characters with individual personalities.
She captures the personalities of the cats and the people so that it all becomes very believable. The focus is on the mystery, not on the fact that the cats are talking to each other and to their human friends.
I have read and love all the Shirley Rousseau Murphy Joe Grey books. I was disappointed with the narrator of the two previous audiobooks and only tried this one because the sample sounded so much better. (The other narrator was just not right for these books, in my opinion). I hope that they continue making these audio versions and that Ms. Boyce does the narrating. If you listened to the others and didn't want to try again, I suggest that this one is worth a credit. Great story to read and a great story to listen to.
