    "Easy listening"
    What made the experience of listening to Baldi: Series 1 the most enjoyable?

    Baldi is brilliantly characterised in this series by David Threlfall, and they're wonderful (if implausible) stories for a bit of late night listening. Sadly the opening story is not actually the beginning of the series - but this glitch aside, it was thoroughly enjoyable.

    "Great radio series"

    Paul Threfall and supporting cast are great at bringing to life this brilliant series. Well worth listening too. Looking forward to listening to the rest of these.

    "Didn't enjoy these books - too short"
    Would you try another book written by AudioGO Ltd or narrated by David Threfall?

    Story
    "An unlikely detective"
    Where does Baldi: Series 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    An excellent suite of performances by all concerned, but particularly the superb David Threfall (to convincingly play a Franciscan friar and then so completely 'become' Frank Gallagher is remarkable).


    What did you like best about this story?

    The radio play format is one that I particularly enjoy and I find it engages the listener much more than a simple narration.


    What does David Threfall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    The Baldi stories aren't, to the best of my knowledge, available as books (if they are, I'd really like to read them).


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Its hard not to feel compassion for Baldi's uneasy relationship with his vocation, being in the secular world and his desire to help solve crimes is skillfully pitched throughout these stories.


    Any additional comments?

    Another series would be wonderful!
