I don’t think these episodes have aged well, or perhaps they weren’t great to begin with. Great actors, terrible sound effect and even worse storylines. I usually love a great audio horror or gothic mystery, but even I wasn’t convinced by these.

You get into it after a while

I love the full cast dramas, so I had high expectations for this. I was taken aback by the seemingly old-fashioned, slow narration in a heavy antipodean accent and odd sound effects, but all this actually grew on me. Try a couple of episodes before you give up if you are a little unsure like me!

Dinosaurs for adults!

Full of great facts that go beyond what children learn about dinosaurs, and that includes the latest research. Fab narrator too.

Great narrator!

The story and characters are a little mundane but the narrator fantastic which made up for the shortcomings.

Thought provoking!

The whole podcast is a fascinating and interesting listening experience, with several different points of view and conclusions on the subject of what nature can do for a troubled or stressed mind. Recommended!

Excellent!

Great narration, well-written story, lots of twists and turns, great character portraits. The Australian outback has never been so enthralling.

I really loved The Dry, and like Force of Nature but I love The Lost Man! And the narrator is amazing - normally quite pronounced accents get tiresome quickly, but this Australian accent was just perfect the whole way through (though his attempts at British English were extremely funny!)

I’m a fan of a good ghost story, but this...

I love ghost stories, especially set in old houses. But here the author pushes the boundaries of the genre too far. Without giving anything away, the ending is extremely unsatisfying and doesn’t explain much of what’s been going on, leaving the listener disappointed. Nothing is explained or resolved. And ‘ghosts’ that text and use email - really?
Great narrator though!

Atmospheric!

Excellent performance, not just by the narrator but by the whole cast. Just enough sound effects to entice without making it a radio play. Perfect for Christmas time! Superbly narrated by Simon Callow.

Really enjoyed Horowitz's previous Holmes' adventure, but I didn't even finish this one. Incredibly dull. I found the character very unlike Conan Doyle's Holmes, a real shame.
