    "Reliable Good Book"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Elixir of Death to be better than the print version?

    The performance of this audio was first class, helping to bring the characters to life while you can just relax and listen.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hilda was my favourite character, she is a no nonsense sensible independant woman with a strong character.


    What does Paul Matthews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Paul has a good voice to listen to and easily portrayed the different characters without going over the top with changes in voice tone and accents.


    Any additional comments?

    As expected from this author, this was an interesting mystery with good characters and lots of historical detail. The performance was also excellent which just added to the experience.
