The Keys to the Street | [Ruth Rendell]

The Keys to the Street

Mary Jago had donated her own bone marrow to save the life of someone she didn’t know. And this generous act led directly to the bitter break-up of her affair with Alistair. For him, it was as though her beauty had been plundered. But the man whose life she had saved would change Mary’s life in a way she could never have imagined.

    Story
    "Good and clever, as they say a page turner"
    Would you try another book from Ruth Rendell and/or Simon Russell Beale?

    Ruth Rendell yes I remember I read some younger but there are so many good writers.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Keys to the Street?

    The way the author handles the abused person and the bully.


    What three words best describe Simon Russell Beale’s voice?

    pleasant in character


    Do you think The Keys to the Street needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    not necessarily, I think the main character has had enough adventure.


    Any additional comments?

    Compared to lots of others the sound was bad. As if copied from tape. Somehow muffled.

    "Mystery with humor and insight"

    A great mix of mystery, humor and insight. I also enjoyed the setting -- near London's Hyde Park.

    "A Perfect Match"

    From the very start I was riveted by this reading - Simon Russell Beale makes a wonderful job of an excellent book. No mispronunciations or hesitations, no moments when you suddenly realise that the narrator hasn't actually read the story until this very moment - this is a masterly piece of work. Somehow the voice and story are so well matched that at the end you find it hard to separate them, but I suppose that's what being an actor is all about. This forms a link to the plot in a thoroughly bizarre twist. Thoroughly recommended.
