Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I love Toby Peters and I love Charlie Chaplin, so I would recommend this book to anyone. However, I think a background of reading some of the earlier books in the series would help to get full enjoyment out of this.
Who was your favorite character and why?
I loved Charlie Chaplin in this book. I have read several modern novels in which he was a character, and here he is significantly older and more dimensional than he was as a younger man.
What about Jim Meskimen’s performance did you like?
Meskimen has captured two voices so well they feel as if you are listening to the real men: Chaplin, with his high-voiced mid Atlantic accent, and in a cameo, Orson Welles (phenomenal). He kept the pace going and I loved his voice for Toby's downtrodden brother.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The last scene in the book made me cry. I cannot reveal why.
Any additional comments?
A great series of detective novels that deserves a great series of new recordings, by presenters who can do great imitative voice work. It is very difficult to find these books in print unless you haunt used-book websites, and many are only easily available on Audible. Some need to be redone sonically because they are just too old.
