Solve another medieval mystery with Brother Cadfael.

I have been an Ellis Peters fan for many years, and I found the Books-on-Tape Brother Cadfael books, that were read by Patrick Tull, in my local library years ago. I was dissappointed to NOT find them at Audible when I became a member. I am now enjoying myself listening to them again as Audible aquires them.
Patrick Tull is a wonderful reader. He seems to really enjoy the very texture of Ellis Peters' words, and this makes the Brother Cadfael books even better than they already are.
Thanks Audible - and thanks for getting the Ellis Peters "Inspector Felse" mysteries, too. Please get ALL of the B-O-T Ellis Peters recordings!!!!
Patrick Tull brings the characters to life. His accents are very good.
I find Cadfael to be an interesting individual.
Yes, I enjoy his way of telling the story.
I Have read most of the Cadfael stories
I live on Puget Sound and my wife and I spend our summers on our boat out on the water.
I bought this book because I am a huge fan of narrator Patrick Tull. I had listened to his reading all the way through the Patrick OBrian Aubrey-Maturian series. I am glad I did buy it because I found this Brother Cadfael novel to be very entertaining. You have to hang in there a bit if you start with this book because you don't have any of the backstory. That said, once you sort out the characters the book stands alone apart from the rest of the series. I will go back and start reading this new series from the beginning.
Great story as usual, but this narrator doesn't hold a candle to Stephen Thorne. All the characters sound alike, this is more just a "read-aloud" in a sing-song voice. Sadly, this seems to be the only recorded version of The Rose Rent". Don't know why there isn't a Thorne version ...but still love the series!!!
Ellis Peters. Yes. If read by Stephen Thorne. Tull. Negative
Not quite on the edge
Stephen Thorne, hands down the much better reader. Also, he's (Thorne) done most of this series on Books on Tape. Look it up
This particular reader
Bring back Stephen Thorne
