dead cert typical dick francis style
he narrates the books well
when alex is in trouble on the mountain
"Thanks, an excellent book, a good listen."
I would listen again, the storyline was good, I listened over a long weekend, sandwiched between DIY and Gardening, Gave up TV and enjoyed the experience. Wanted to hustle it along occasionally, but that is part of the enjoyment, you felt you were there.
"Loved it and learned lots!"
The kids and I loved this. At first I thought the narrator's voice was too old to play a 29 year-old, , but he's such a good voice actor that it didn't matter. A real hit for adults and kids!
Enlightening, informative, entertaining. Would recommend to non DF fans as a good read. Engaging plot right to the end
"A good Dick Francis"
quick paced interesting plot
The edge also by Dick Francis. Another interesting story, with a few twists. easy listening
The narrator has a warm voice, bringing the characters to life
i liked the relationships between the characters.
"Tony Britton's narration is totally inappropriate"
Tony Britton is a very elderly man. The protagonist is a young man in his twenties and the crackling, plummy voice narrating the story was completely ridiculous and ruined an enjoyable book. Britton's female voices were like something out of Mrs Doubtfire. Sadly, He has lent his voice to many more of D F's books - which I shall be avoiding.
"To the Hilt"
I don't think you can go wrong with a Dick Francis novel and this story does not disappoint. Francis's stories are always very comforting to listen to and a great favorite that can be re listened to again and again.
Another great story from Dick Francis. This book is full of action and intrigue, family rifts and greed... This book personally kept me up all night and earned me an audible badge for all night listening! This story takes place between The Scottish Highlands and London. Our hero, The black sheep of the family, is a successful artist living in a remote hut in Scotland. His uncle, Lord Kinloch, loans him the hut in return of a painting once a year, usually of one of his gun-dogs. The Kinloch Castle has been handed over to the nation, however the Lord insists he owns some of the items that were personally given to the Kinlochs including the hilt of a ceremonial sword given to his ancestor by Prince Charles. When our hero is beaten up at his hut he is uncertain as to the reason; however he finds out that his stepfather is in debt and his Brewery is under threat of insolvency. A race horse and Gold Cup are being sought to pay off the debt. Can our hero save the day?
