Bertie Thropplestance stands to inherit a vast fortune from his wealthy but indomitable grandmother, a fact that has not escaped the notice of every mother of a marriageable girl in the county. But old Mrs. Thropplestance has her own ideas of a suitable mate for her grandson, and even when he romantically rescues Dora Yonelet from a rampaging elk, this cuts little ice with the dowager. The elk, however, has its own ideas, and the story ends with a delightful if macabre twist.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
We collected a few short audios for a road trip. The Elk was one of them. A nice little story and I did enjoy the British - European accent by this narrator.
Would you be willing to try another book from Hector Hugh Munro? Why or why not?
Would you listen to another book narrated by Cathy Dobson?
Sure. But I must say I prefer American English voices as the main narrator, as I can understand an American English dialect a tad more easily without straining at all. I love British dialects for character voices though.
