An enjoyable diversion

I thought the concept of this book was pretty neat and I enjoyed guessing at the who ,what, where, etc. of the various mysteries. The performances were ok. I really missed the narrator of the other books. He was "made" to narrate such funny, quirky material. This is not like the typical book in the series so don't expect that, but it is lighthearted fun.

Very entertaining

Where does File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best family audiobooks we've listened to.

What was one of the most memorable moments of File Under: 13 Suspicious Incidents?

The author does a great job depicting the setting, Stain'd by the Sea, a miserable seaside town populated by absurd people and ridiculous businesses ( including a board store and a French horn factory). The humor throughout the book kept us laughing.

Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Not really. Some of the narrators are great (Ira Glass and Stephin Merritt) while others are just okay.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

If you think you're miserable now, wait until you visit Stain'd by the Sea!

Any additional comments?

The mysteries are presented and you have to wait until the end of the book to hear each solution. My kids (ages 14 and 10) had a great time trying to solve them. This was a terrific choice for our road trip. It's fun for both children and adults.
