Almost unlistenable, but great Classic
Nigel Strangeways! I find him amusing and entertaining. This was the first and we learn the snipe was always a prodigy from a young age. Blake's characters are pleasingly eccentric, and well- representative of their classes' stereotypes. Golden age mysteries!!!
His voice was OK but some insane director/producer had him read in a very annoying, stilted manner with oddly placed hesitations. I've not ever heard the like before even after listening to over 2000 audible books.
I have persevered listening to this classic series with long gaps in between books. I have to wait for my TMJ flare-up to abate. I need to be able to grit my teeth throughout! The stories are good, some more than others as in any series and worth the downsides.
