    Story
    (131)

    Melbourne, Australia, 1929. The year starts off for glamorous private investigator Phryne Fisher with a rather trying heat wave and more mysteries than you could prod a parasol at. Simultaneously investigating the apparent suicide death of a man on St Kilda beach and trying to find a lost, illegimate child who could be heir to a wealthy old woman's fortune, Phryne needs all her wits about her, particularly when she has to tangle with a group of thoroughly unpleasant Bright Young Things.

    Megan says: "The personality of Phryne in a voice."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Murder on a Midsummer Night to be better than the print version?

    Yes. I was surprised because when I've read Greenwood's Phryne Fisher mysteries I've always enjoyed them, but Ms.Daniel really brings Phryne to life! (She's wonderful with all the characters - giving them distinct voices and inflections.)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Phryne is always my favorite, but Eliza had some amusing dialog in the first few chapters, occasionally battling with her socialist principles.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Too many to have a favorite.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I want to do that with ALL of them!

    Widowed van driver Bob Naylor is prodded into joining the Chichester Writers' Circle by his teenage daughter. Bob writes limericks and jingles, and fears he will be out of his class amongst the literati. But the members of the circle come from all walks of life and practice many forms of writing, from fantasy to household hints. There seems to be nothing about any of them to incite a serial killer. However, there is an arsonist in their midst, burning his victims to death, and Bob becomes a suspect.

    June says: "Interesting plot"
    "Clever and very amusing."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Circle to be better than the print version?

    Absolutely. I've read all of Lovesey's Peter Diamond and Hen Mallin books and loved them, but hearing them read by a talented performer is the tops.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Circle?

    Naomi and Zach's collaboration on the e-book, probably. Her no nonsense approach and his private thoughts are priceless.


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

    I confess that I look out for audio books narrated by Simon Prebble. He does a great job distinguishing between the characters with his vast arsenal of "voices". He uses accent, inflection, tempo, volume etc., to the best advantage. A wonderful performer!


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

    Oh my, yes. I laughed a lot. Mr.Lovesey is hip to the vernacular. The characters and dialog are priceless!
