Where does The Secret Speech rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Among the top 10!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Secret Speech?

There were many! The Hungarian Uprising

What about Colin Mace’s performance did you like?

Held my attention/

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh god, yes!

Any additional comments?

Having a Russian partner and my mother in law being roughly the right age for the speech to have been read to her at school I had to ask. She could not remember, but has since read it and then proceeded to give me a run down ...
If you have seen Child 44, the franchise needs a reboot just so this and Agent 6 can be made into trilogy.

What did you like most about The Fourth Protocol?

I watched the film back in the 1980's as I grew up in the area of MK where the 'domestic' scenes were filmed. Geographically I lived possibly under the run way of the air force base. Now an adult and can appreciate a good espionage film I decided to buy this and give it a go.
What did I like? The well researched background and the similarities with that man Corben and the socialist manifesto ...

Who was your favorite character and why?

I am torn between Petrovsy and Preston. Both doing their job for their own cause be that the security of the UK or the spread of the soviet socialist ideal. I think Preston just nudges past the post on this one due to the human element of an absentee father.

What about David Rintoul’s performance did you like?

Easy to listen to.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

As I was mostly listening at work, not really :)
