An Interesting Combination of Two Histories

Not until near the end is the intertwining of infamous Crippen and famous Marconi apparent.

Please, Don't Sing!

I really like the Phryne Fisher books and enjoy Stephanie Daniels performances but, please don't sing. And in this particular book, the droning monotone of the professor was very hard, for me, to get through.

Enthralling!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to the next installment. Bronson Pinchot is a great narrator and a master of voices. However, I'm a "grammar nut" and his pronunciation of dirigable (sp) drives me crazy. Emphasize the first syllable, please.

Not that good.

Holmes wasn't portrayed as being clever, or observant, in fact, the story wasn't "Holmes-like" at all.
Narrator has a deep voice, which is nice but he spoke much too fast. The accents, to me, sounded more like a common class person rather than upper class British like Holmes, Watson and the "Lady."
When I slowed the listening speed so narrator didn't sound rushed, the results were comedic .

Not crazy about narrator<br />

Stephanie sounds too old, Lula just doesn't come across believable and Ranger sounds like Ricky Ricardo!. I've read most of the Stephanie Plum series, and read out loud to my daughter & husband. Sadly this audible version didn't satisfy as hoped.

A Favorite in the Series

I really enjoy the stories with young Ramses, and Barbara Rosenblatt does a wonderful job interpreting his precocious character. As a listener, I love him, if he was a real life child, well, I'd be glad he wasn't mine. :-)

I just cannot listen to the narrator.

I stopped listening the first time after about ten minutes, the character "voices" were grating, so I tried again a few days later,. The narrator's attempts at "voices" might satisfy small children but a straight reading would've been better.

The Perfect Combination

"Good Gad!" Elizabeth Peters' writing and Barbara Rosenblatt's narration are "in my opinion" simply awesome!

What an Engrossing Epic!

I am of Polish ancestry but was aware of just small bits of Poland's history. This book taught me so much and has prompted me to learn more.

I Loved It

The narrator's different character voices are amazing. Storyline is imaginative, engrossing and an Audible must-have.
