    "Patrick Tull reads Ellis Peters ... Great!!!"

    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!!!!

    "A very compelling listen"

    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.

    "ponderous reader"
    Would you try another book from Ellis Peters and/or Patrick Tull?

    Ellis Peters. Yes. If read by Stephen Thorne. Tull. Negative


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not quite on the edge


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Patrick Tull?

    Stephen Thorne, hands down the much better reader. Also, he's (Thorne) done most of this series on Books on Tape. Look it up


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Rose Rent?

    This particular reader


    Any additional comments?

    Bring back Stephen Thorne
