don't be fooled



This is another great story by a very prolific author. BUT, this reader is one of the worst I have ever heard. He is hesitant (almost studdering) and he hasn't a clue what the story he is reading is about. I will finish it because I do like the Gideon stories but I am cringing as I listen. This is one better read in book form. Try it on your kindle instead.

terrible reader

the person who read this book had the worst voice I've ever heard. the audio quality was even worse, with a "tinny" quality to the entire audio book. Stay away!

good story - bad sound

What three words best describe Arthur Bash’s voice?

Sounds like he was in his bathroom when he recorded this.

Mr Bash himself isn't a bad narrator, but I have heard better with the gentlemen who narrated books one and two

Any additional comments?

It is a shame about the hollow amateur sounding recording but if you can get past that amateur sound then it is a good book

Classic Gideon, 1950 classic BBC narrator

If you want to hear Gideon as it woukd have sounded on thec1950's radio tyen this us tge recording for you. I found the stylde too ponderous and a lack of ability to injectt excitement into the narration that I have heard on other Gideon recordings.

Gideon

I liked the story ,lots of interaction with different officers and different ranks. There were times the narration seemed dated. I could almost imagine the reader wearing evening suit and bow tie. Some background noise seemed to sound like pages being turned.
