Mr. Doyle, absolutely; Mr. Whellams, not a chance.
Yes, he's a fine narrator./reader/performer.
This book needed a strong editor with a lot of red ink. The lead character was not developed in any meaningful way. Instead he seemed to be a sexist, simple-minded git whose proclivity for secrecy was responsible for several deaths. I think the local chief of police was on the right track to insist the dolt be called back to London.
The story and characters are charming.
It's not a book with startling episodes.
He seems genuine and sincere. His accents need practice.
I would read subsequent books in this series and hope Audible acquires them.
No thank you.
Not the genre, just the author
the performance was fine,
I listened for almost 3 hours, after which I felt no interest in the characters or the outcome.
The new characters were wooden and unsympathetic. The old characters did not grow or develop but seemed stuck in cliches.
No character development and the story was weak.
The narrator sounded as if she were reading it for the first time.
Seems to me this author needs to find a new, strong editor who can red-line uninteresting prose and send the author back to the drawing board, so to speak. I doubt I will be revisiting Irene Huss again.
For me audio is always better than print.
Girl With The Dragon Tattoo--both are first in their respective parts of the country.
No, but it was a book I immediately listened to a second time.
I am desperate for the other two of this trilogy to be put on Audio....hopefully with the author reading them.
