This book is unlistenable due to Phillip Franks' extremely fast reading. While I have enjoyed his acting, and thought I would like hearing him narrate, I cannot follow the story at all.
Perhaps I'm getting tired of this series, but it does seem to be getting too syrupy for me. Maisie is too perfect and too all-knowing. The "mystery" was not interesting, and the story is too much a romance of sorts.
Calling this a mystery is a stretch as it is surely just a romance, and a creepy one at that. Not my genre and I certainly will not listen to any more books by this author.
This was not what I expected at all. The story is a good one, but the gruesomeness was chilling. That said, I enjoyed it very much. Go figure. The narrator is perfect for the story.
This may be a good series to read, but the narrator is very poor in the audible version. She has a sweet little voice that makes the prostitutes sound like they're in a high school play. The plot is somewhat shallow, although being the first in the series it deserves some time to develop the characters. I don't expect that I will continue with the series.
This is the last Miss Marple book and it's a great finale. The story holds your interest and the narrator does a great accent for the main character. An easy listen.
You can't go wrong with a Ngaio Marsh story and James Saxon is a wonderful narrator.
NN is just what we expect from Dickens and probably most of us have read it at some time before listening to it. Often, listening to a classic is just like spending time with an old friend, and that is the case here. Simon Vance makes the characters jump off the page. I find myself listening to his voice and being amazed by the range of characters he creates. Sometimes I purchase books that I might not have considered because he is the narrator.
I thought, at first, that the ipod was playing this book at a faster speed than normal. It is impossible to listen to and to follow the story - it's just too much work to be enjoyable.
