Would you consider the audio edition of Break In to be better than the print version?
I read all of Dick Francis's books as a youth, but now because I loved them so much I'm listening to all of them and loving them. This particular book is one of the best narrated (and written) books I've experienced, and I'm going to miss it dreadfully now that it's over! I love Simon Prebble's interpretation of all the British voices - each is distinct and so well-rendered. Outstanding, simply outstanding!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Kit Fielding, without a doubt!
Which scene was your favorite?
That's a tough one to pick... there were SO many great scenes. I guess if pushed I'd pick the scene where Kit and Bobby find Jay Erskin and the other guy trying to remove the wire tap device from the Allardeck's roof. Great action!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Absolutely. I had to tear myself away from it every time I ran up against a deadline.
Any additional comments?
The rendering of the various British accents, handling of youth vs. elderly ages, women vs. men's voices... beautifully done! Kudos to an outstanding narrator, and of course, to the amazing talent of the late Dick Francis.

This is the first of two mysteries that feature Kit Fielding. The second is "Bolt." As ever, Francis writes great and Prebble reads great. There's really not much more to say....
