A fascinating story but couldn’t Hachette have found readers who could speak French and German?? The attempts at the languages ruined the recording.

What did you like best about The Evil Genius? What did you like least?

The insight into late 19th century life. I liked the reader least

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Not good by 21st century mores.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Bolen?

Almost anyone, but certainly British

Did The Evil Genius inspire you to do anything?

Be glad I live in the 21st century

Any additional comments?

I have made a note never to listen to anything read by John Bolen.

Would you try another book from Henning Mankell and/or Grover Gardner?

By Henning Mankell, not read by Grover Gardner

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It was interesting

What didn’t you like about Grover Gardner’s performance?

He can't pronounce Swedish names. A foreign book should not be read by someone who can't pronounce the words.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, if they were interested in a detailed review of climate change science.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

N/A

What didn’t you like about James Adam’s performance?

Very boring. But difficult subject. I don't think he would convince anyone who was on the fence.

Could you see Climate Change: Bolinda Beginner Guides being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

An Inconvenient Truth, Al Gore
