    "An excellent listen"

    This is the second installment of the Montmorency story. The first instalment is not unfortunately available with Audible yet. Stephen Fry's beautiful reading of this epic tale is brilliant. However, I would advise that you either read or listen to the first book before purchasing this title, as the characters introduced in the first book are central to the story of the second. Perhaps Audible can obtain the rights to the first book as well...

    "montmorency on the rocks"

    THis was an excellent listen. We listened to it as a family age range 9-45 and it entertained us all. Stephen Fry reads brilliantly. The plot was intruiguing and kept us involved unitl the end.

    "Light and Fun"

    If you enjoy being read to by Stephen Fry you will not be disappointed. Light and Fun this entertaining read is one to enjoy when you are doing a tedious task like the ironing and very safe to listen to with the family around. I will definitely purchase any more Montmorency titles if they become available on Audible if they are read by Stephen Fry.

    "Enjoy a light listen?"
    Any additional comments?

    This was a really fun book to listen to, a light listen, I thought. It was also restful to hear Stephen Fry's excellent interpretation as he read. Try it!

    Story
    "Listen and relax on the beach"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Montmorency on the Rocks to be better than the print version?

    The audio version of this book is great. I don't think that the written version would be half so good. It was greatly enhanced by Stephen Fry's interpretation.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It tied up some of the loose ends but was too abbreviated and left some story lines hanging in the air.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The scene where Montmorency was chasing the crook through Kew Gardens Greenhouse


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but it is too long for one sitting


    Any additional comments?

    The book was greatly enhanced by the reading of the story by Stephen Fry. His use of accents and different voices turned it into a performance. I have not read anything written by this author before but will look out for any other audible productions of her stories

    Story
    "Weak story, good narration"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story is quite weak - it has a good build-up, but a let-down ending


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting was the promise of a bombing and epidemic mystery happening simultaneously.


    Have you listened to any of Stephen Fry’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    He is always the consummate narrator with a voice like warm chocolate (which is not always terribly good when he tries to be "common"!)


    Was Montmorency on the Rocks worth the listening time?

    Yes (just)
