The Red House Mystery | [A. A. Milne]

The Red House Mystery

Far from the humorous escapades in his famous Hundred Acre Wood, A. A. Milne brings to The Red House Mystery all the suspense of classic whodunit: an unexpected visitor, a mysterious murder, a secret passageway, a beautiful woman and a suspicious valet. But when a guest at the inn becomes a self appointed 'Sherlock Holmes' and acquires his own, personal 'Dr Watson', some intriguing evidence comes to light. A classic detective thriller from the best-selling author of Winnie the Pooh.

    "Great fun from a long-gone era"

    This early murder mystery displays typical Victorian-era country-house characters that are amusing and entertaining. I wasn't expecting Milne's wry humor, and I was pleasantly surprised with the opening conversations between the servants that kick off the story. The 6.5 hour length is good for numerous activities, and the easy-to-follow characterizations allow for other pursuits to occur simultaneously. Like many male narrators, the reader's men are much better than his women, but overall everyone had a characteristic "voice" that alleviated any confusion. This "read" is just plain good fun and I recommend it for anyone who loves country-house mysteries.

    Story
    "A.A.Milne in a new light"

    Anyone familiar with the works of Milne will be pleased with this mystery. While there are many lighthearted moments the story is full of twists and turns that are the hallmark of a good mystery. My favorite character was Anthony, Bills "plucky sidekick". The narrator, Bill Wallis, had many different voices which left no doubt what character he was portraying at any giving time. This story takes you from chuckling one moment to biting your nails the next.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Too dated and juvenile


    Would you recommend The Red House Mystery to your friends? Why or why not?

    Will recommend it to friend who did not know AA Milne wrote adult fiction. Personally feel his metier was children's books the writing of which he excelled

    "Poor narration"

    Not a bad story line but totally let down by the narrator. Bad choice of narrator, the voice and style are wrong for the story. Shame because with the right narrator this could have been a good listen.
