Broken Homes audiobook cover art

Outstanding

Overall
5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 06-28-19

The surprise ending did sort of come as a shock, but listening again I was aware of the signs. As always this series continues to be unique, funny, serious and above all entertaining. Kobna Holbrook Smith is an outstanding narrator, I wish he could be used in other crime fiction, his range of accents and character definition is beyond compare.

The introduction of Lavender and Woods is interesting. I'm addition there is little of interest out there on the Bow Street Runners. I'm addition the book broached several topics, anti Catholic sentiment in England at the timr, the sheer squalor and poverty of the 99% of London, and of course the class system. An excellent pre Victorian novel.

I have the entire series so far, but have a great fondness for this one. Characters are very believable as is the premise. If you have not read or listened to this series do so, you will not be disappointed.

Would you listen to Come Twilight again? Why?

I probably would not. Tyler is a great author but not a good narrator.

Who was your favorite character and why?

It is a toss up between Danny and Jen. They both bring unique perspective to the story, and Jen keeps Danny in line (sometimes)

Did Tyler Dilts do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

He did a bad job. Without the he said he said it would be impossible to differ between characters.

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

All of Tyler's books make me both laugh and cry. However his inability to give each character detracted from that..

Any additional comments?

Please continue the series, but please bring back either of the other narrators.

Another great book featuring Leo and the gang. Patrick Lawlor gives another great narration. Now if someone would get books 5 and 6 narrated by PL. I would be happy indeed.

What did you love best about The Soul of Discretion?

This book as with all of the ones in the series covers controversial topics, especially this one. I love the way Hill weaves story lines together. Even though these books are about Simon the DCS, they are also about his family, their lives including both good and bad happenings. In this particular book in the series many things come together, yet still leave much more to tell. It was by far the most intense of the series covering some very gruesome yet timely topics. I was enthralled and unable to set the book aside.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character is Simon closely followed by his sister Cat. They are so real and human. I like Simon because of his intensity, though I sometimes want to slap him. He is well balanced by Cat though his twin (triplet?), they could not be more different in many ways. They seem to complete and complement each other at the same time.

Have you listened to any of Steven Pacey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to all the books in this series, all narrated by Mr. Pacer. He is one of the best! I could listen to him all day. His ability to change character, his timing, his fluidity with the stories is amazing

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I listened to this book over 2 days, but given the opportunity I would have done in one sitting. It is that good and very interesting.
