For what this book is, it is very enjoyable. The narrator is fantastic, and the book was fun to listen to. For people who love British narrators, and light mysteries, I recommend it!
I came to this series via this book, which happens to be the back door (# 25 in the Hamish Macbeth series. Enjoyable characters, but it is clear that there are established relationships that you don't have the background on. I enjoyed this one enough to try and track down more of this series. The narrator was a good choice for this book.
I'm an avid reader/listener who loves a good yarn, a voice full of character, and a little something to think about. I hate it when a great story is ruined by unnecessary or extreme violence/profanity.
In this well-read, charmingly accented recording, Beaton's appealing characters become more engaging. I feel that I would recognize Hamish Macbeth if I passed him on the street.
As I've said before, Mr. Malcolm IS, repeat, IS Hamish MacBeth. And the character of MacBeth makes even a less than spectacular story worth my anticipation.
Hamish is a great character that can, at times, be charming, impish... even romantic and touching... but always makes me laugh out loud! Characters that make me sad to come to the end of a story, but glad that is a series so there is more to come!
They should have called this Death of a Listener. It bored me to death. I could not wait for it to end and it is a relatively short audiobook. I bought it because it has over 4 stars. Seriously? But this is part of a larger series and maybe if I had started with book 1? That is not going to happen now. I guess this is just 'not my cup of tea'.
Yes, I like the MacBeth series. However Audible.com does not have all of them, so there are gaps in the continuity.
He is the best reader for this series.
Yes, but not as much as others.
Sit back relax don't worry - do you have a cup of tea maybe a hobnob cookie? Now you are ready for Hamish. Enjoy!!
I live to ride my bike.
Hamish Macbeth constable of Lochdubh with the colorfull towns people is a wonderful change of the more modern mysteries. I was able to get faces the people and town by watching the videos which you can only find at Netlix.
I love a good mystery. My favorite author right now is Edward Marston. I am enjoying the Great War Series.
I love the Hamish Macbeth series. The characters, the humour, the plot make for a great escape into a wonderful gentle world that you wish really existed.
