    "Good Story, Great Narrator"

    Patrick Tull, may he rest in peace, gave seamless performances, and this is one of them. The story is classic Ellis Peters - a well-crafted mystery set in a slower time. Cadfael's forensics were as scientific as the times allowed, but just as much about heart and his understanding of human nature. These are characters I care about, who interest me. I'll keep listening.

    "I prefer Sir Derek!"
    What did you love best about The Virgin in the Ice?

    This is my 2nd favorite Cadfael novel. The book introduces Cadfael's son, one of my favorite characters in the entire series. BTW First favorite is Brother Cadfael's Penance in which also includes Cadfael's son.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Olivier, Cadfael's son who manages to get into what amounted to enemy territory and get back out without getting caught and still do what he was sent there for.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Tull's voice fits the book and it's characters but he has a tendency to get a bit carried away. I have listened to Derek Jacobi's versions of the Cadfael books. He played Cadfael in the British TV series based on the books. He does a better job IMHO by keeping the needed interest without going off the deep end the way Tull has a habit of doing, more so in this book than he did in the other Cadfael book I have of his, "One Corpse Too Many"


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I have done so twice now and have also listened to it in parts during my working hours.


    Any additional comments?

    I like Tull's performance but I would like to see the unabridged versions by Derek Jacobi available as well. If they were available, I'd buy the lot!
