I'm enjoying these dramatizations

I wasn't sure if I would like these radio-stories or not. I do. In fact I like them quite a bit and hope more come to audible. I've enjoyed reading a lot of the books in print and I think Jerry Robbins does great justice to Perry Mason. I always found that in the books Perry was more edgy than the TV version. In fact when you read the books you really see WHY the DA hates Perry so much.... These dramatizations are definitely show this side of Perry too.

Uhm... close, but no cigar?

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Amazingly, there is NO courtroom drama in this Perry Mason, courtroom drama story. Also, the writer of this new. but not improved version of Gardner's original story, decided to change the identity of the murderer. As far as performances go, none were standout great. The actress playing Della Street had a very hard. hostile edge to her -- uncharacteristic for Della. MIA: Lt. Tragg and Gertie. Thankfully this was a cheap title so I didn't part with too much cash. If you're really interested in this title, watch the TV episode--much truer to the original.

What could Erle Stanley Gardner and M. J. Elliott have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Perry Mason's claim to fame were his courtroom antics. Any production of Perry Mason must include the courtroom part. Elementary.

What about Jerry Robbins and The Colonial Radio Players ’s performance did you like?

Perry had a new. fast-talking edginess that was unique and clearly separated the actor from Mr. Burr's classic PM

Margie sounded about 10 years old... might use an actress with more maturity to her voice...Margie was an ingenue but not a child.
