Another Good Buy/Read!!

Would you listen to Baldi: Series 5 again? Why?

Strong characterizations, good performances and direction make these radio dramas come alive, as always!

What other book might you compare Baldi: Series 5 to and why?

All the Baldi collections provide good value, entertainment, and high production values.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Baldi is not a 'book' character so much as a BBC creation, but faithful to its core character, a priest drawn to solving crime, though not in quite the same way as Chesterton's "Father Brown."

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

These collections of radio episodes differ as much in their plotting, as in their moral lessons. All of them offer insights to criminal motivation, with much sympathy for the fallen.

Any additional comments?

Keep them coming!
