A funny story, extremely well told

Would you consider the audio edition of Appleby's Answer: An Inspector Appleby Mystery to be better than the print version?

Yes, due to the fine performance of the narrator, who has a seemingly infinitely flexible voice and brought every eccentric character vividly to life.

If you’ve listened to books by Michael Innes before, how does this one compare?

N/A

Which character – as performed by Matt Addis – was your favorite?

Lady Pinkerton

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

Yes, although i was forced to divide it up over several days.

Any additional comments?

Not much happens in this story! So don't purchase or expend a credit on it if you require a genuinely hair-raising, corpse-strewn, edge-of-your-seat experience. This book is for anglophiles who are lovers of language, gentle humor, and character-driven mysteries.
