Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I am a huge fan of "the Cat Who" books by L.J. Braun and I have read or listened to all of them over the years. However, and with no disrespect intended, I was very disappointed in the reader. I had gotten used to hearing George Guidall do the other Braun audiobooks (i have several on cd) - and I absolutely love the sound of and way he reads! So, to hear this other man was unexpected when the book began. I still enjoy the cat stories - they are all excellent and great fun - but I didn't care for the performance, I'm sorry to say.

Was The Cat Who Blew the Whistle worth the listening time?

It was worth the listen, but I won't purchase another one with this particular reader...
