This is one of my favorite books. Full of good humor, gore, and adorable characters.

Good story. Dated a little bc Christie deals with an issue whose precise depiction in the story can seem naive. But the issue - technology vs magic - is still with us. As far as I'm concerned, this message is transmitted by magic. As always, Hugh Fraser strikes the perfect tone throughout.

This is one of my favorite books, full of color and character and plot. The narrator seems to be having as much fun burrowing into these wonderful characters as I have every time
I re-listen.

Superb Wodehouse, superbly narrated

My expectations were high because this is my favorite Wodehouse, and because I had already been blown away by Sinden'S narration of a funnyNgaio Marsh book. Expectations fully met! This wonderful nonsense is as good an answer as any I know of to life's ills.

Pure joy.

This is a sequel to Blue Moon and like that wonderful work, it is delicious. Jeremy Sinden's performance actually enhances both books. I don't think he should be allowed to do anything else but read brilliant, idiotic comic literature aloud. I will spend my credits on anything he reads.

One of my personal treasures. The art gallery, the anarchistic artist, above all Appleby's junk shop duel -- priceless wit with a reasonable plot.

It took a little while to get used to the reader's style, but once I did I found he carried very well both James's prose and the intense suspense he creates.

I've read and loved P.G. for years, but never more than in this delicious reading. Bravo!
