    "One of the Best Mysteries I Have Ever Read"
    What did you love best about Put on by Cunning?

    The end was so simple, and so obvious, yet it had never occurred to me. Truly a brilliant who done it.

    A voracious reader, especially for a dog. Of course, terriers are superior. Not bragging. Just true.

    "Deliciously Complex Mystery"
    Where does Put on by Cunning rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Above average - usual great writing and plot by Ruth Rendell.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Put on by Cunning?

    Loved when English Inspector Wexford visited California and I could see America through his eyes.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes, although the narration was the weak point in the overall listening experience.


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

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    The British narrator did the WORST version of an American accent I've ever heard. Literally laughable. I bookmarked the section so my sister could hear it and laugh along with me.All the Californians sounded like... I don't even know. Hillbillies? I understand there's another version under the American titled Death Notes and narrated by the always fabulous Davina Porter. That might be a better choice.

    "Laughable American Accents"

    I couldn't get very interested in the characters, basic plot, and setting, although I did stick with the book in order to find out who committed the crime and how Wexford would solve it. The narrator acted the part well, but his accents seemed too formal for British police officers, and his American accents were laughable. Sorry, Ruth. This one just didn't cut it for me.
