    "a real treat!"

    I enjoyed this Honeybath cozy-romance even more than Innes' Inspector Appleby tales, mostly because Laurie does Brit tongue-in-cheek eccentricity better than anyone else. The very small mystery element is not the point - it's the play of words and humour, with Innes poking fun at his genre as much as the foibles late 20th century British aristocrats. It's more of a precursor to McCall Smith's 44 Scotland St series than a mystery. A short but sweet listen, it's worth a credit.

    "Hugh Laurie's narration of Lord Mullion's Secret"
    What made the experience of listening to Lord Mullion's Secret the most enjoyable?

    Liked it all.


    Have you listened to any of Hugh Laurie’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes...Jerome Jerome's Books. Like them as well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It Was.


    Any additional comments?

    I read that another reviewer did not like Hugh Laurie as a narrator and I believe it comes down to a matter of taste. I never choose a book by reviews unless there are a number of remarks about the sound quality etc. It is my belief that Hugh Laurie is a good actor and a good narrator. Since I enjoyed this book and others that he has narrated, It is my wish that he will do more.

    "an actor but not a narrator"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    Hugh laurie may be versatile as enactor but he lacks finesse and charm as a narrator. Michael Innes [J.I.M. Stewart] deserves better - and gets it in, for example, in Hamlet. Revenge. NOT RECOMMENDED.

    "Good listen"

    This is a terrific book made so much better as it is narrated by the wonderful Hugh Laurie. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys this type of book and who likes Hugh Laurie. As audio books go this one is in my top ten. At more than five plus hours in length it gives a lot of listening pleasure. Well worth the price! Good work, especially to Laurie and I hope to listen to more of his work.
