I *think* I liked this book but can't be sure because the narration was too distracting. Characters were shrill, whiny, almost hysterical in places where they should have been stoic. Dalgleish was performed as if he were there to soothe us to sleep.
I will try other P.D. James books, but not narrated by Penelope Dellaporta. I think I'll stick to old fashioned reading for the next one.
Better Dalgleish stories....but classic PD James
I am a PD James fan, and have always enjoyed the descriptive dialogue, which for some lends to a slow read. This is not an action story, it really is more a study of a variety of personalities.
yes, but only for those that enjoy what words can do.
I felt she let the characters be who the author envisioned them to be. I felt the author was reading the story.
