More interesting, intelligent interaction among characters, maybe even a little humor would have made this book a four or five star experience.
I was somewhat interested the story of Mary's injuries. I am not interested in Morrocco's history so that this many-houred history book was not interesting to me.
The narrators' performances kept me listening to the end.
I have no suggestions.
Joel Rosenberg does it again!!! He has produced a non-stop political thriller centered in the Muddle East. With excellent narration of multiple accents, The Third Target presents a terrifyingly plausible look at the near future of the world if ISIS is not stopped.
I enjoyed Susannah Tyrrell's narration very much. The story, however is murky and rambling without any really like able character development. There was little mystery in the story. I was puzzled by the strange sympathy toward rats' being used for scientific experiments and little sympathy for the murdered grandmother. I loved the first book in the series and hope the third book will be better than the second.
D. E. Stevenson captures humorous life in a small English town during the first half of the 20th century. Barbara Buncle is forced to keep chickens(an endeavor she cannot bring herself to do) or write a novel because of short returns on her investments. With a pure heart, a razor sharp pen and the non de plume of John Smith, she writes about the happenings in a fictional town full of her real friends and acquaintances whose names are changed. Fiction becomes reality as some of the real life people follow the lead of their storybook counterparts. Some of the inhabitants of the true town are furious about John Smith's writing and plan revenge if they can uncover the author's identity. Is romance in the wings?? Listen to the book and find out.
The book finds Father Timothy and Cynthia married and adjusting to each other and Dooley off to a fancy boarding school. The Mitford crew is up to all sorts of activities--funny, endearing, alarming, victorious and sad. This laugh out loud book is a joy to hear as the voice of Mitford, John McDonough, expertly reads each character.
I prefer the audio edition because of the power of the spoken word to draw the listener into the story. Jim Dale captures the tone and accents of people who lived in Englans around Dickens' time the way a reader could hardly imagine.
Charles Dickens gives us glimpses of Victorian England filled with vivid, compelling characters. He mixes in humor, misfortune, fairies, a little mystery and a big surprise.
I loved the character of the carrier, John Peerybingle, whose heart was so full of love.
I laughed and even she'd a few tears.
I would like to thank the people at Audible for such a lovely Christmas gift.
Intriguing Inventive Exciting
Can't think of one.
Dick Hill's narration brings a steely, determined tone to the novel that might not come through as well by my reading the book.
I listened to it in three sittings because I was so curious to know "who done it."
I would have preferred less four letter words. I did enjoy this book, though.
This could possibly be a 4 or 5 star listen if the narrator spoke more slowly and there weren't so many characters.
Yes I really enjoy Ngaio Marsh and am sad to give her a one star rating.
I do not plan to listen to Wanda McCaddon if she reads as quickly in other books. Her voice is pleasant for listening, her different accents are well-done, but she reads as if she is racing the clock in this book.
I was disappointed because I was looking forward to hearing another Ngaio Marsh novel.
I tried changing my device setting to "slower" but the sound was distorted at the slower speed.
