"It's always a treat to read a Nero Wolfe mystery. The man has entered our folklore." (The New York Times)
"What's not to like about a Nero Wolfe mystery? The mysteries are short, cleverly plotted, well paced, and, if you're an audiobook listener, wonderfully read by Michael Prichard....Prichard has read nearly 20 books in Stout's series and has mastered Wolfe's deep, meditative voice and Archie's spry, chipper voice, as well as those of a host of other characters we recognize from one recording to the next." (AudioFile)
Yes, I enjoyed both the reader's voice and the story.
Archie is always my favorite. He is fun-loving, never serious, and yet, he always gets the job done.
I have only listened to Michael Prichard read the Rex Stout books. He has a good voice for the story. It isn't too theatrical. He reads clearly and alters his voice enough to hear the differences in characters as well as their personalities.
