    "Classic story perfectly read by Robert Powell"

    Can highly recommend! Difficult to believe that this was written a hundred years ago. Different from the classic Hitchcock film version but equally good.

    Story
    "YAWN!!!"

    Can only say I endured it to the end. I have enjoyed several film adaptations and was looking forward to the book. Thankfully the films are far superior to the book. In fact they are so different they might not even be linked to the novel if you were unaware!!!. However...Robert Powell was brilliant in the performance of it.

    "Original"

    Nice to have the original story rather than the various film attempts to make it more entertaining. There is enough tension and urgency in the original to make it a readable (and re-readable) story, even if the language and politics are now less fashionable

    A great story, made all the better by the wonderful way Robert Powell narrates. First class.

    Story
    "Well read"

    This really was a classic. I'm afraid it wasn't for me, the voice suited the character and time very well. I didn't look what it was about so it's my fault. I found it hard going with all the spy stuff.

    Story
    "Bit dull, forgets women exist."

    A book by a man, solely about men (I don't think a single female appears in the story, not even a wife or a maid and even the dogs are male) probably best enjoyed by men who also like to forget that women exist. That aside, the story was slow, not particularly gripping and even the climax was weak.

    Story
    "OK but dated (naturally)"

    I didn't enjoy this as much as I thought I would - some of the language was a bit 'hard to take', and it certainly was dated. In one instance - someone was bestowing grateful thanks for something and said 'You're a white man'!!! Odd to say the least as he wan't stating the obvious - he was implying his respect!!

    "Fantastic reading, great story"

    A great thriller with wonderful descriptions of the Scottish landscape. The reading is excellent - accurate accents, very expressive. I'll be listening again and again.
