    "Great Series"

    A few years ago, the Harry Nile radio drama series was broadcast on a local radio station. I was very disappointed when that station stopped broadcasing the show. I was delighted when I found the series available on CD, and now on Kindle.

    This is a modern version of the type of radio drama that was broadcast in the days before television became popular. I listened to classic radio shows as a child and still enjoy them today.

    Each show is about 20 minutes long. The plots are intriguing and the characters likable.

    "Continuing History of Harry and Murphy"
    Where does The History of Harry Nile, Box Set 6 (Dramatized) rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love Harry Nile. This is another great set.


    Any additional comments?

    Another reviewer mentioned that this doesn't stand the test of time. I'm not sure what that means given the the whole point of this is that it takes place in the 1950s. If you like historical mysteries, Harry Nile is for you.

    I am a proud Mexican woman that loves words and reading/listening to books. I also believe that only through knowledge can we achieve progress.

    "sADLY dated"
    What did you like best about The History of Harry Nile, Box Set 6 (Dramatized)? What did you like least?

    A little bit of nostalgia, but sadly does not stand up to the test of time


    What could Jim French have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I think he did the best he could with outdated material. Reminded me of the old radio sessions of Dick Barton


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance was good, but i reiterate, the material was too old fashioned


    Did The History of Harry Nile, Box Set 6 (Dramatized) inspire you to do anything?

    Yes! to write this review and say how sorr I am that Harry Nile does not stand the test of time
