so good, I have bought all the others in the series since. I am still waiting for more. What a team. I have laughed til I cried and had to lend my ipod to friends, who have since downloaded the series. I have to admit I did feel that Karl was being picked on, but I soon got over that and Steve Merchant often comes to his rescue to let him finish his anecdote.
These are saved as favorites and I still lend my ipod to those who are uninitiated. a must buy
Goodness, absolutely hooked. This story is calmly dramatic, if such a thing can exist. The narrator told this story with such feeling, that I was there, in the snow, all alone with only the dogs.
I have done a search for more by the author and have just bought the series Chronicles of ancient darkness. I'll see how it goes. I'll also do a search on the narrator Jeremy Northam, because it was his telling of the story that did it for me.
"didn't help my husband"
my husband suffers with tinnitus, and when I saw this title by Glenn Harrold, (who has a good reputation. I have used him before. ) I decided to get it for my husband. Unfortunately it hasn't worked. It asked him to focus on the tinnitus buzz, but this has only temporarily aggravated the problem. It might work for you though, and if you're desperate, it's worth trying anything.
"witty and entertaining"
This is the first time I've listened to a Reginald
Hill book and found it thoroughly entertaining. The
pace of the story is good with the characters very
easily recognisable as the narrator does a fine job
with the accents. Quite often listening to a story it
is difficult to catch the different characters because
of the pace of the story telling and I sometimes need
to listen several times certain parts to understand
who is who but not in this case. A good listen.
This is such a good buy. The narrator,sorry forgot hs name, but I'm going to check back and look for books read by him. He did a great job to a great who dunnit. Buy this book and you won't be disappointed.
"what else would you expect"
what else would you expect from the masterful Jodi Picoult?
Her research into the emotions felt by not just the family, but the person who has had to live with or experience the dilemas faced by real people give her characters life.
I enjoyed this book immensely and recommend that you listen to it too.
"an enjoyable listen"
I liked this audible book with its easy to listen narrating, typical of a British radio series. Excellent sound quality and a 'good who done it'. A good buy for a working mother. You can get a couple of chapters in while cooking dinner and not too seat gripping that you want to yell at the kids to get to bed quickly.
"Who can beat Graham Greene?"
Wonderful story, well told. I listened to this in almost one sitting.
The first series was better. Nice to see ideas can come from over seas, but British is best!
"good story, bad sound quality"
I suffered the awful quality of this recording, because the story was so griping. Some audible books really need the quality of sound cleaned up, before putting onto the market.
I have tried downloading again in-case it was a problem on my side. No it hasn't worked.Best getting this short story from the library.
"I wouldn't get volume 2"
The sound quality for this series is pretty bad. Sure, we want to know that they are walking away or a train is leaving the station, but the background sound effects, crunching gravel, workmen etc is so loud, that it is difficult to hear what is being said unless you are in a quiet room with no distractions. Plots are boring. Give me a Miss Marple, Cadfael or Sherlock anytime.
Lucky I didn't even start on zee orrible french accent.
