    "One of Francis' best"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Banker to be better than the print version?

    Certain authors' works seem to come alive more on audio than in print. Dick Francis is one of those. He had a very lean prose style, and that works best in audio because it comes off as 'someone telling you an interesting story' as opposed to books by authors with a more ornate style where it's the construction of words on the page that has the magic. These books are tales told by friends. You can settle in and listen and in doing so hear the thunder of hooves, the cries of the jockeys and the roar of the crowd.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The villain of the piece has a somewhat timeless quality. Even though this novel was written a couple of decades ago, guys like him are everywhere nowadays.


    What about Simon Prebble’s performance did you like?

    Simon Prebble is perfect for the works of Dick Francis. It was his performance on an earlier edition of BLOOD SPORT that hooked me on both audiobooks and on Dick Francis. Through his narration the individuality and humanity of the characters is evident.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Although I didn't come to tears, the death of one character was deeply moving; and the reading of those scenes was handled in a way that brought the horrors of loss to stinging clarity.


    Any additional comments?

    I've become hooked on the Simon Prebble versions of Dick Francis...but as a result I also bought his version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL.
