A Really Disappointed Charles Finch Fan
Would you try another book from Charles Finch and/or James Langton?
I thoroughly enjoyed all of Finch's previous books in this series (HUGE fan). I anxiously awaited this recent release (waited for months). What a let down! The plot is soooo dull that I didn't want to finish it. In the past, I usually relished each chapter of his works. But in this last work, the plot and the characters (who I grew to appreciate in his previous books) all seem one dimensional. I can't help but wonder if the author rushed this book by submitting an outlined manuscript and then the publishers drew it out with painstaking, boring details that never gained momentum. The result: A looooong, boring tale that made me lose my fondness for Charles Lenox and Lady Grey. I also really missed the wonderful supporting characters that were included in previous books. What a shame and waste of time. Sadly, I'm tempted to get a refund.
Would you ever listen to anything by Charles Finch again?
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
The narrator was fine. No cmplants there.
What character would you cut from A Death in the Small Hours?
Not sure. They ALL needed more dimensions.

Sort of Pleasant
This is a pleasant, light read of no consequence. I am not sure what the point was. I like it as a quiet diversion, but do not expect to listen again (as I do with stories that are well told and read).
