    "Not what I had expected"
    What would have made The Saint better?

    I think if the information available before purchase had made it clear that it was a collection of short (very short) radio shows, with quite a lot of signature tune at the beginning and end of each, this would have helped. I was expecting something that ran on throughout.


    If you’ve listened to books by Leslie Charteris before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to books by Leslie Charteris before.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I'm not sure really how to answer this question, as I only listened to about 15% of it.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It does have a lovely period quality, and I think if someone had edited down the play-out and play-in music it would be fine.
