Publisher's Summary

Cadfael's return to his Welsh homeland for a visit proves a rather discomfiting homecoming when an honorable nobleman turns up in a patch of forest with an arrow embedded in his chest. There are questions about the arrow, the man's daughter needs Cadfael's help, and a very odd burial takes place.

    "a must for Brother Cadfael fans"
    What made the experience of listening to A Morbid Taste for Bones the most enjoyable?

    Patrick Tull's reading of the unabridged version of Ellis Peter's (Edith Pargeter) A Morbid Taste for Bones is lovely to listen to. The pacing is relaxed, feels unhurried, and keeps the spirit of Brother Cadfael. The


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Morbid Taste for Bones?

    Brother Columbanus's


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend for those who like historical fiction/mystery and for those who are already Brother Cadfael fans.

    "loved the tv series so wasn't sure"

    this was really fun and very well done. I didn't even miss Derek Jacoby too much. I did continue to imagine his face though.

    "A marvelous story"

    Patrick Tull's narration was spot on, and I felt as if I was watching Derek Jacobi portray cadfael again within the book. Ellis Peters story is a literary master piece, and is well worth the listen/read.

    "Not my favorite narrator"

    This is the first Cadfael story by Ellis Peters, and it's a fine story, but I was annoyed by the narrator. Sometimes I couldn't tell who was speaking (voices between characters were not different) and sometimes lines were delivered more harshly than the context would suggest. Also words were a bit garbled. Not saying I could have done it better, and I got more used to it as I listened to the rest of the book, but in others stories in this series I became accustomed to and liked another narrator, Roe Kendall, a woman. Ms. Kendall rendered the characters cleanly and authentically.
