    Story
    "Mystery and Medieval charcoal burning"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Devil's Novice to be better than the print version?

    I love reading this series and listening to the titles in it as well. Patrick Tull was an excellent narrator. I re-read and re-listen to them because I feel as if I am acquainted with the characters and the setting. One is medium is as good as the other.


    Which character – as performed by Patrick Tull – was your favorite?

    In addition to Brother Cadfael, Hugh Berringar is a real favorite as is Abbott Radulfus.

    "Another Five Star performance by Patrick Tull"

    Outstanding story by Ellis Peters. Peters as always is careful to let his characters grow and learn, well maybe not Prior Robert, and Brother Jerome, but the main protaganist has a lesson to learn and a lesson to teach. I am a serious Cadfael fan, and a visit with Cadfael is a respite from pressure. If you have never visited Cadfael before, I recommend " One Corpse Too Many" for your first listen. Then just enjoy.

    "Not Peters' best, but worth listening to."

    After listening to all of the Cadfael books at least once and some more times than that I feel while this is not what I would consider Ellis Peters' best effort it is still worth listening to. A number of the characters are a bit shallow and all but the Novice himself could use a bit more development. The secrets our Novice are hiding can keep you wondering and who cannot like Bother Jerome being stranged 'til he turns blue!
