    "Local color into local headache"

    I don't mind about the fishing. The writer seems to know a lot about fly fishing, and that part is at least marginally interesting, even for a person with little affinity for the subject.

    What got me is the approach to characters. Each one goes on and on about his/her background. Listening to this story is like being trapped on a bus by a bore. He/she is hell-bent on telling you everything he/she ever experienced - the life story. Please. I'm still breathing here, and wanted this writer to get on with the story before boredom made me stop. Barely made it to the end.

    Narrator deserves better.

    I have a strong preference for the SPOKEN, as opposed to the written word. Although a poor reader may detract from a book, a truly capable reader adds immeasurably to the enjoyment of a good book.

    Story
    "Heavy on fly fishing"
    What did you like best about The Royal Wulff Murders? What did you like least?

    Perhaps a cut above average story and a good, sound performance. I'm not a fisherman, but the fly fishing details and threat to trout were interesting; nonetheless, I wouldn't welcome a steady diet of that much detail. I found the several physical injuries to the protagonist a bit overdone.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The who-done-it aspect was most interesting. The on-again-off-again romance episodes would hardly capture one's attention very effectively. If I had been reading, rather than listening, I would probably have skipped much of that.


    Which character – as performed by Rick Holmes – was your favorite?

    Hard to say what character was performed best. Rick Holmes was so practiced and adroit he became invisible as the reader. All one hears is the characters, and the performance becomes transparent, as it should with a really professional job.


    Did The Royal Wulff Murders inspire you to do anything?

    Well, . . . I'm not going to take up fly fishing for trout, if that's what you're asking; however, I am going to check on the author's latest book.

    "Good Easy Read....er listen"
    If you could sum up The Royal Wulff Murders in three words, what would they be?

    Good easy read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Royal Wulff Murders?

    The almost near drowning of Stranahan by the murderer.


    Have you listened to any of Rick Holmes’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really-the book is an enjoyable, easy read, mystery.


    Any additional comments?

    If there is a negative the character which is the actual murderer is not introduced in the book until you are halfway into the book. I personally like for all the characters to be introduced up front. Let the games begin!
