Bring back Graeme Malcolm!

Graeme Malcolm's reading of the first two books in the trilogy, Old Filth and The Man in the Wooden Hat, were perfect -- beautfully done. Why switch for the third? Watson makes all of Jane Gardam's wonderful characters sound whiny and bored. I put the book down.

Last, and Probably Least

This third book in Gardam's Old Filth trilogy is fun, yet not quite as good as the first two installments. Edward and Betty Feathers and Terry Veneering have passed on, and the story continues with the lesser characters in the series, most prominently Fiscal Smith and Dulcie, widow of Pastry Willie, the judge who was Betty's godfather. Much of the novel is flashback telling Terry Veneering's past as the son of an impoverished mother and an Odessan circus performer who ends up making it good. Recommended for fans of this series.

The biggest problem I had was the change in reader. Graeme Malcom, who read the first two installments, was perfect. Roger Watson makes the characters--especially the females--sound like caricatures.
