Thirteen Steps Down | [Ruth Rendell]

Thirteen Steps Down

Mix Cellini (which he pronounces with an S rather than a C) is superstitious about the number 13 and has always felt dogged by ill-luck. In the house where he lives, there are 13 steps down to the landing below his rooms. His landlady lives her life almost exclusively through her library, blind to the neglect and decay around her. However, Mix is obsessed with the life of the notorious John Christie, who lived in the same Notting Hill neighbourhood at 10 Rillington Place....

    "Could have done better"
    What did you like best about Thirteen Steps Down? What did you like least?

    The narrator.

    It took what appeared to be a very long time before something happened.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The ending, it sort of fizzled out.


    Have you listened to any of Ric Jerrom’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes, loved him as Lord Peter Wimsey in Murder Must Advertise.


    Was Thirteen Steps Down worth the listening time?

    Yes, I listened to it a second time, so it can't have been as bad as it seemed to be the first time around.


    Any additional comments?

    I haven't read any of Ruth Rendell's books before, but decided to give this one a go seeing as it was narrated by Ric Jerrom. I would have liked the action to have begun a little earlier than it did, and not have ended with a whimper. Maybe I am asking too much, but I do like a bit more action.
