    "Erle Stanley Gardner would be proud!!"

    This story is very true to the Gardner's novels. Love Perry-daring, dashing and cool. My family loves CRT's Perry Mason too. I listen to this often. the quality of this dramatization is excellent. Thanks for a great story!!

    "What a Kick!"
    Any additional comments?

    If you are a "middler" you may have watched the original TV series with Raymond Burr, as did I. Aesthetically, the blonde Paul Drake and dark Perry Mason, their matching IQs but differing though usually compatible approaches and personalities, balanced by the
    smart and efficient, ahead-of-her-time, Della Street was very pleasing.

    This radio show has different values, and may mimic those of the original E.S.Gardner
    stories, as he wrote in the 30's. CRT has Perry much more aggressive, a high wire walker risk taker,more gruff and general-like, not as smooth and elegant as the TV series. Paul Drake is more assertive, but still willing to help Perry without subservience or compromising his independence, and the Della character seems a little weak to me,
    but that may be how Mr. Gardener viewed women then - as servants.

    Nevertheless, do not be fooled by the titles, the stories are full blown mysteries, and you
    will be entertained to the end. As always CRT has excellent sound effects, excellent small part characters, and a good clip throughout.

    They are a good bargain for the price and I will probably listen to more in their series!

    I have had audible now for about 8 months and have enjoyed expanding my reading into books I would have not read before!

    "Fun to see the original!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you grew up watching the old b&w Perry Mason shows on tv, here is a chance to here what the original character was like, along with Della and that savvy detective. Perry Mason is a bit more edgy and considered a bit of a maverick in these. Worth checking out for the fun in it!
