    "Suddenly, from across the hall, came a cry - sharp, uncanny, terrible. I ran out in the direction from which it had come and stood on the threshold of the Drew dining room. A table was set with gleaming silver and white linen, and in its center stood a cake, on which fifty absurd pink candles flickered bravely. There appeared to be no one in the room. On the other side of the table, a French window stood open to the fog, and I went around to investigate. I had taken perhaps a dozen steps when I stopped, appalled...."

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Fifty Candles the most enjoyable?

    Good performance of a little known early Biggers novel.


    What other book might you compare Fifty Candles to and why?

    Much better narration than other early Biggers novel, "Seven Keys to Baldpate," which is a comedy.


    What does Kiff VandenHeuvel bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good emphasis on story twists.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No great emotional levels are here, but plot develops apace. Denouement is dated, but this book is early 20th Century...


    Any additional comments?

    Purchased on sale and well worth the price.
