Perhaps it is not quite as good as others in the series but enjoyable, nevertheless.

I really enjoy this series. The books are gentle & witty, and things work out in the end.

Excellent!

This is such a clever new Sherlock Holmes book! Anthony Horowitz is a genius! The characters are exactly as one would expect but he explores new themes in an interesting way. I loved the ideas in it. I was very sad to finish it. I'd love more of them!
If you like the Sherlock Holmes books or any of the TV spin-offs don't hesitate to get this!

This is a nice, feel-good story. It's very easy listening. It's ideal for long journeys or to listen to during housework.

Not as good as the first in the China series

Not as good as the first in the China series but interesting and reasonably engaging. Having Peter Forbes read this series too was an excellent decision.

I lost track of what was happening many times but I still kept listening. In fact I'm not sure what it was about at all but yet I found it strangely compelling. The pan pipes are absolutely awful. They should edit them out. I got used to the narrator and liked his voicing of the characters. The world of the text meticulously drawn and very well realised. I found myself having to admire the book despite not really following it. My advice to listeners is to pay attention all the way through because it is tightly written and every detail is important.

This is an incredibly ambitious book. The plot is huge and spans vast tracks of time. Although I found it hard to know where it was going until close to the end I was still completely engaged throughout. I wish the narrators had made a bit of effort to learn how to pronounce the names of the Irish characters but I'm prepared to forgive them. I wish I had listened a little more attentively all the way through because it's very tightly written and I think I missed things along the way. So listen carefully! It's worth it!

As good as ever!

Another exciting story from Peter James. And some interesting developments in his personal life too.

This is beautifully evocative of a place and a community. It's quite a romantic view of life but maybe that's what we need every now and then.
