    "A Winner"

    This is a story from the Horse Racing World by a master. Dick Francis is a good story teller and this was a very entertaining book

    Having met Mr Francis at a racecourse in South Africa many years.ago I have always liked his books and after that they took on a bit of his personality as he was such a gracious man.

    "not worth the audible credits"

    The reader was pompous, the hero was a dummy, and the action was slow.

    Story
    "Felix Getting Better."
    If you could sum up Silks in three words, what would they be?

    I have read every Dick Francis book and enjoyed 95 percent of them. Felix's efforts have been decent attempts at emulating his father's style. But they were just not the same. This one really hit the mark of what I have come to appreciate about the Francis novels. I have been to Cheltenham several times so I love when the festival meeting is part of the story. As with typical Dick Francis books this had a teaching moment on other subject matter (British law in this case) and I learned some things I didn't know. Very good twisting plot included made this a pleasure to read.

    Story
    "Narrator a bit off"

    This was an entertaining Dick Francis tale as usual, but the main character who is supposed to be in his 30s sounds more 50-ish+ and was annoying throughout. The narrator provides an excellent performance, just not for this character. In some scenes the protagonist makes some incredibly dumb choices that don't ring true for the savvy and intuitive lawyer he's portrayed in other parts of the book. I will definitely listen to more Dick Francis, but will be more selective.

    "Good read"

    I enjoyed it as usual. Hoping the son follows the father's footsteps and produces good books.
