I admit I bought this book because I'm a Simon Jones Fan. I had read the Bartemeus trilogy prior to purchasing the audio book so I knew it was very good but his narration was sublime and adds so much throughout all three books. I had this odd moment of belief that maybe anything he reads would be good. So I searched Simon Jones.
Let me be very clear--the faults I find in this book have nothing what so ever to do with the narrator--I suspect that my inclination to his work carried me through a book that is, in the end, an annoying little play on the English version of the cheap Long Island summer melodrama. Spoiler--the most interesting thing about is that the dog is the murderer, but the dog is essentially the butler, so the butler did it. Honestly, it was sort of annoying.
So that's my review--Simon Jones narration great; book--almost hopelessly dull unless you are fascinated by the inanity of the Hamptoms.
Having said that, I'll keep searching Simon Jones, I enjoy him immensely.
