"The master of the clever twist" (Sunday Telegraph).
Robert Goddard is master of plot twists, and his characters are usually very well drawn. Name to a Face is no exception.
Almost anyone. Andrew has a good voice, and is able to portray various characters, both male and female, very well. Why then does he use odd, if not bizarre, inflection and emphases? His delivery drops perfectly formed words one after the other in a manner that suggests that he has no understanding of, or engagement with, the subject matter he is reading. It is both tiring and tiresome, and made a good book almost unlistenable.
I rarely return books, but this one is not worth paying for. It is read too badly.
I have read several Goddard books and really enjoyed them. I can't tell if this book was an anomaly or if the narrator just made the book seem cheap. The narrator sounded like Ringo Starr, totally annoying.
Michael Kitchen if the best!
"Worth Every Penny !"
Enjoyable from start to finish.
Robert Goddard is a great story teller helped by one of the best narrators around.
"Good but not my favourite Robert Goddard"
It's not my favourite of Robert Goddard's books, most of them I absolutely love! This one had too many plot twists for my liking, I mean obviously a few are expected but there were too many people telling too many lies to be beliveable... and no likeable characters at all! Mind you, I am a fully paid up member of the Harry Barnett fan club so nobody can really compare...
I actually like Andrew Wincott's narration. It was actually quite refreshing to hear him doing something other than The Archers and I found his characterisation quite believable.
