    Story
    "Applause for Three Hands in the Fountain"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Most definitely! Lindsay Davis' character Marcus Didius Falco is believable and likable. The story takes twists and turns that were unexpected and Falco's dry humour helps to glue it all together.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Falco, with his dry wit, is easily my favourite character, although many of the others have significant roles in allowing Falco to manipulate his way through the story.


    Which character – as performed by Christian Rodska – was your favorite?

    As above - Falco - although Christian Rodska is one of the best narrators I've ever heard. He adds music, character and mood to the words. When he speaks for a given character, the voice is so different, it's almost as if a different person was speaking. Such a delightful man to listen to. I'm extremely pleased he's narrated so much of the series.

    Story
    "Latin detective work"

    Good handling of another in the series. The use of English dialects/accents was very good to differentiate between the characters and to set the tone. Will continue to follow this series.

    Story
    "Mystery and intrigue in Ancient Rome"
    If you could sum up Three Hands in the Fountain in three words, what would they be?

    Informative, imaginative and exciting


    What did you like best about this story?

    I love the combination and strength of characters, the way that Falco always seems to be thumbing his nose at all in authority and the historical detail which adds to the story rather than bogging it down.


    What about Christian Rodska’s performance did you like?

    A natural reader with a wonderful voice


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

    I very nearly did!

    "Exscellent"

    Once you've read one Falco, you'll find yourself wanting to read another ... and another - they are definitely addictive! This one is just as good as the others preceding it, if rather gruesome at times. There's nothing explicitly nasty however - it is more a case of the imagination filling in the details. As well as the usual crime in need of solving, there is also the wonderful backdrop of Falco's family life which as always, is one of the memorable parts of a Falco book.
