    Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.

    Story
    "Pulp Fiction of the day"

    Written shortly after the Boxer Rebellion in China.

    It seems common that those most victimised by gross brutality then become objects of gross discrimination.
    There was an Independence Movement against the West after The Boxers decided 'enough was enough', with the West destroying Chinese Culture and Society with huge loss of life, out of greed, and then having the audacity to send their missionaries to preach love and forgiveness..

    As a glimpse into popular thinking of this time the story could be given a resounding 5 star listen.

    However we have all manner of politically incorrect sentiments being expressed in this classic piece of popular fiction.
    It was written as a serial in the newspapers of the day, and this explains the multiple adventures for our hero as he unravels the plots to bring down the Government.


    Fu-Manchu stories did become a popular series in it's day.

    Story
    "The narrator brings the charactors to life."
    Where does The Insidious Dr. Fu-Manchu rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not top 25, but top 100.


    Which character – as performed by B. J. Harrison – was your favorite?

    Fu-Manchu. He brought the evil genius without making the man a one dimensional cardboard character.


    Any additional comments?

    This is one of those books which are easier to listen to then read text. Harrison is the reason.
