Mrs. Pollifax to the Rescue!

Once again, Emily Pollifax has a simple mission for Carstairs, just a simple addition to her planned vacation to Thailand with her husband Cyrus Reed. But things go wrong immediately when Cyrus is abducted, and Mrs. P goes after him. Many interesting twists in this adventure, and new friends made, as well as old friends found.

I've Discovered Mrs. Polifax!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Of course! So entertaining, never dull ( to me anyway) Mrs. Polifax is a few years younger than I am and I love her get up and go..

What other book might you compare Mrs. Pollifax and the Golden Triangle to and why?

I would compare it to the 6 other Mrs. Polifax books I have read this month. I know the author started writing this wonderful stories in the late sixties, a time period I can indentify with. I even bought 3 extra credits so I can continue reading Dorothy Gilman's books.

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

They are all good and very entertaining!

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

YES!

Any additional comments?

Barbara Rosenblat is an excellent reader. I have put other series she has narrated in my wish list.

Great series

Where does Mrs. Pollifax and the Golden Triangle rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Absolutely loved this whole series. Narration was great except for the last book in the series. Loved the locations and the detailed description about the people, customs, and traditions. Mrs. Pollifax character was a delight and loved her. Listened to the series twice through I enjoyed it so much. The narrator was so good, I can't imagine that reading the books would have been nearly as enjoyable.

Another lovely read

Dorothy Gillman continues to impress with her stories of Mrs. Pollifax. And Barbara Rosenblat's rendition of each character is superb. Her linguistic talent is amazing. One can hear each character speak and know who is speaking before the story confirms it just by Barbara's focus on tone, dialect, pitch, resonance. I won't take a trip without Mrs. Pollifax helping while away the miles!!

Whew!

Drugs and spies and government involvement, this book whisks us off to Thailand and the adjustments of a war torn, and yet to recover, area. This book, and the previous book in the series, are the most time identifiable books yet. Barbara Rosenblat is a fantastic narrator. Good for older kids and the rest of the family.

Fun Detour

What did you love best about Mrs. Pollifax and the Golden Triangle?

I really liked this detour into some other characters at Langley.

What other book might you compare Mrs. Pollifax and the Golden Triangle to and why?

This one is like the first in immediate change of plans, physical challenges and resourcefulness.

Any additional comments?

Ms. Gilman enjoys, more and more each book, the opportunity to explore another culture with her readers.

Mrs Holliday and the golden triangle

I first read the Mrs pollifax books in the 70s, and was surprised to see the influence they have had on my life. I am 80 years old and traveled a lot. I'm sure Mrs P and the travels have made me what I am today.

New Favorite

I am new to the Mrs Pollifax novels and I love them. I am on book 9 already and will hate to see the end of them. The concept is a little unbelievable, but, that's no different from a lot of mystery novels I read, my favorite current protagonist Is Jack Reacher and he's about as super human as they come. The Pollifax characters are well developed and likable. If you're looking for an enjoyable read with a little mystery and drama, this is it.
