    At the center of the intrigue is Hollywood star, Frederic Stahl. September 1938. On the eve of the Munich Appeasement, Stahl arrives in Paris, on loan from Warner Brothers to star in a French film. He quickly becomes entangled in the shifting political currents of pre-war Paris - French fascists, German Nazis, and his Hollywood publicists all have their fates tied to him. But members of the clandestine spy world of Paris have a deeper interest in Stahl, sensing a potential asset in a handsome, internationally renowned actor.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I did not find it worthwhile to read because I found the book to be uninteresting and too sexually extravagant for my taste


    Would you ever listen to anything by Alan Furst again?

    If this book is typical of his writing style, I would not listen to more of Alan Furst's material


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

    The narrator does an excellent job of giving each character his or her native accent.

  • All Things Bright and Beautiful

    Herriot continues the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, and we journey with him across the dales, meeting a whole new cast of unforgettable characters - humans, dogs, horses, lambs, parakeets - all of them drawn with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. And all the stories are warmly, evocatively told by the world-renowned "voice" of Dr. Herriot: Christopher Timothy.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I love the James herriot series, but this one played at a slower speed during part of it. There was a serious error in the digitization process.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of All Things Bright and Beautiful?

    I like the book as a whole


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christopher Timothy?

    I would cast no one other than Cristapher Timothy


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    The audio quality sparked disappointment, anger, and sadness in me


    Any additional comments?

    This book should be remastered
