Wonderful

I tried to make this last as long as possible but couldn't stop listening. Simply wonderful narrator Tim Goodman, great writing from Mr. Fowler and the best characters ever. I am so glad that the next book is due out in March 2017. I have heard them all but can listen to these stories over again and find something new each time. Just sit back and enjoy.

New take on the 'Odd Couple' detective genre

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was interesting albeit a little implausible (not that that interfered with my enjoyment of the story).

What does Tim Goodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The voices were well done - not overdone. Especially liked the older characters voices.

Any additional comments?

This was a new author and series for me. I enjoyed it and look forward to trying another one. My one reservation was the - for me - overly easy villain.

Quirky, brilliant and gripping

What did you like most about Bryant and May Off the Rails?

The characters are eccentric and beautifully revealed and the story engaging. I love the way that it winds around, gradually developing and revealing. The pace is almost leisurely but there is still huge tension. Very skilful writing.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Bryant and May Off the Rails?

It's the whole fantastically detailed knowledge of the corners and history of London. The plot is Byzantine but the City is a character in itself.

What does Tim Goodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The voices of the characters bring them to life far more than if I had just read the book - although I have now read several of the Bryant & May books that I had previously heard.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Just thoroughly involved - I looked forward to the next opportunity to listen so much I had to ration the time.

Any additional comments?

So good I've listened twice and will do so again.
