Not really. As a reference book, I think this would be helpful with all the detail, but I found that that did not translate well into a recorded book. So much of the first volume sounded like a reading of the transcript of the coroner's inquest. I found this to be pretty slow and not engaging. Also, the narration was done with little inflection and something approaching a monotone.
Summarize more of the records that were read, presumably, in their entirety.
This recorded book might work well for a researcher but I did not enjoy it.
The dramatization was fantastic! The author did a wonderful job of integrating Sherlock Holmes into the recorded history of the Jack the Ripper story. It also had some great twists and turns.
Yes. It was wonderful listening to getting Sherlock Holmes' take on these infamous crimes that took place when would have lived in London.
Hands down, Sherlock Holmes!
Jack the Ripper Solved.
Would love to listen to more of Vance's work.
Lincoln. Obviously, you know from the beginning what is going to happen. And yet, as the narrative progresses, you hope that something will derail Booth's plan.
Lincoln's commitment to reunite the Union without punishing the South.
Enjoyed the book, especially the detail and some unknown facts about the historical figures involved. O'Reilly does a nice job on the narration, even though another performer might have been better.
