©1969 Dick Francis (P)1983 Chivers Press Publishers
Like all Dick Francis novels, this is a terrific yarn. The story is fast-paced and difficult to put down. The hero is attractive and believable and although there is considerable violence it is story-book stuff and not evil. No swearing or gratuitous sex.
This was a fast and easy listen book. Takes place in England so the language is different and keeps your interest. I enjoyed hearing about the differences in our languages and also the difference in the equestrian world.
The book is basically about a jockey and owner who are disbarred from the racing world. The jockey knows he is innocent and sets out to clear his name and find who framed them.
I cannot compare. These are two different uses/methods for reading a book. When I am alone I like to read the narration on my Kindle, but when my husband and I are sitting in the living room, we like to bring up the audio version so that we can enjoy the book together.
I rarely feel as though I am on the edge of my seat while reading, but I do find that I read faster and faster when the book has me in its grip.
I've listened to all of them. Britton is great whatever he reads.
No; but I enjoyed it very much.
I have written reviews of Francis' books before, and I always say that one cannot go wrong buying one of his books. They are all very, very good books. I have enjoyed every one of them, all of them, always.
While the performance was okay, the story itself was lacking. It just wasn't all that interesting.
A good listen when you're driving 5 hours, or just doing housework -- pretty much G or PG rated
