"The master of the clever twist" (Sunday Telegraph).
Enjoyable from start to finish.
Robert Goddard is a great story teller helped by one of the best narrators around.
"Great Goddard spoilt by poor reading"
Robert Goddard is master of plot twists, and his characters are usually very well drawn. Name to a Face is no exception.
Almost anyone. Andrew has a good voice, and is able to portray various characters, both male and female, very well. Why then does he use odd, if not bizarre, inflection and emphases? His delivery drops perfectly formed words one after the other in a manner that suggests that he has no understanding of, or engagement with, the subject matter he is reading. It is both tiring and tiresome, and made a good book almost unlistenable.
I rarely return books, but this one is not worth paying for. It is read too badly.
"Terrible narrator totally ruined a so so book"
I have read several Goddard books and really enjoyed them. I can't tell if this book was an anomaly or if the narrator just made the book seem cheap. The narrator sounded like Ringo Starr, totally annoying.
Michael Kitchen if the best!
