Well...an interesting story..completely ruined by hideous narration.
For goodness sake give the narration to an experienced versatile actor. I feel cheated...Sigh!!What

Wasted time

Tedious, badly paced and unfunny. As an homage to golden age crime fiction?...mmm Could have been much better. Badly in need of a good editor.

Mm...off accents

Interesting prrmise, however...really odd accents. Not in keeping with the period. . Strikes me as, an unconvincing attempt at golden age crime story. Very longwinded.

The accents were unconvincing which made me terminate before ending. Plot pretty formulaic and mundane.

Dissatisfaction incorrect narrator

Not the advertised narrator. This is narrated by James Saxon. Audible appear unable to correct this despite repeated complaint.

Where does The Readers of the Broken Wheel Recommend rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Midway, not my usual escapism.

What did you like best about this story?

Author's love of books.

What does Lorelei King and Fiona Hardingham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

An interesting two-hander. Worked well when I became used to it. Do not feel that the narration was so unique though.

This book is so impeccably read by Phyllida Nash, that the characters come alive. Although not one of my personal favourite Georgette Heyer books; this reading brings out all of the nuances of humour, hauteur and class consciousness. A welcome addition to the GH library!

Slightly boring

Quite honestly I could not stay with this audiobook. The narrator's slipshod, slightly nasal delivery and mispronounciations were just too annoying.

Unusual plot, with the standard cast of characters. First class entertainment, beautifully read by Hugh Fraser
