What the Critics Say

"What a treat you have in store in Fallen Into The Pit! Narrator Simon Prebble's skills will remind you of the Golden Age of radio, circa 1930s and '40s. Each character's voice is as individual as the many faces of Alec Guinness." (The Reading Lamp)

    Story
    "A peek into an earlier time."

    This book was written in 1951. Sometimes when I read a modern novel which takes place in an earlier time, I wonder how close the author's imagination has come to what the reality would have been in that time and place. In this book, I didn't have to wonder about that; the author knew this time and place intimately. The book is set in rural England in 1951, and that was a very different world from the one we are living in now. This was a time before television and long before personal computers or game consoles were invented. In that world, bunches of kids get together with one another after school and play outdoors for hours--until dark. They range great distances from home without all the fear of strangers that is so ever-present today and without the need to have their parents drive them here or there. It left me feeling very nostalgic.

    The victim of the crime was a very unpleasant person which means that there were plenty of suspects available for us readers to sort through. There were several people who were very viable subjects that I liked a lot and I was worried that when the crime was solved, I would feel bad because a good person was being put away for getting rid of a person who needed to be gotten rid of. And there were obscure layers of motivation that were not instantly recognizable.

    In short, I enjoyed this book a lot. In fact, I have already downloaded every book in the series which Audible offers. I wish they had them all.
