"This audio production follows [Rex Stout's] formula to the letter, with Michael Prichard portraying both main characters brilliantly." (AudioFile)
I'm a German (from Berlin) living since 37 years in Louisiana. Loved to read Rex Stout in German and now here in English.
Rex Stout surely stuck his neck out when he wrote this book at that time. Even in today's time (or should I say "again in this time") it"s not popular to support groups which are not in the mainstream. Being in an interracial marriage myself I thoroughly enjoyed the story and of course Michael Prichard is a great performer. I probably would enjoy listen to him while he's reading the New York phone book if they still have it. Juergen Amling
Rex Stout was well ahead of his time in many areas...and his voice was Nero Wolfe (and sometimes even Archie Goodwin). He didn't shy away from tough issues like Civil Rights...he faced them head-on. We get a taste of this in "A Right to Die". And we also get a particularly good mystery story to boot!
An engaging mystery skilfully narrated, but it's not the brightest of Rex Stout's efforts to portray his genius detective Nero Wolfe.
Faithfulness to the characters as written.
Archie Goodwin, of course.
Rex Stout was a master of detective fiction. His Nero Wolfe stories are all superb. Michael Pritchard does an excellent job capturing the nuances of the characters in his performance. The books and stories are all good reads, and Michael Pritchard's performances of them are equally good listens. No regrets in getting these.
This may not be the best of Stout's classics, but it is in the upper rankings.
Classic who dun-it..Kepps you guessing the whole way
Prichard, who does all the Nero Wolf mysteries, has a great range and makes all the characters shine. When I READ a Wolf mystery now..I hear Prichard in my head.
While All May Have A Right To Live...Some Have A Right To Die
