    What did you love best about To the Hilt?

    I love almost all of Dick Francis's books but this one touched home since I am an artist and he brought the drive of art alive.

    Story
    "Excellent as usual"
    What made the experience of listening to To the Hilt the most enjoyable?

    The James Bond of the equine world rides again! Great storytelling by the narrator and a great story by Francis. The other great thing about Francis is you get to learn a little about another subject. In this case, painting with acrylics.


    What does Simon Prebble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Further character development. The thing with excellent narrators , like Prebble, is you feel you are a part of the story as a opposed to being read a story, usually by an American who sounds angry and abrasive.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    No.
