Kudos for Anna Fields

Just writing in support of Anna Fields, who is one of the best narrators in the business. Her male voices are particularly good, and her inflection and intonation are always superb.

Barbara Holloway has become as familiar as an old shoe through this series; it's definitely worth starting at the beginning, even if you have to go back to the old fashioned printed word for some of the early installments.

Sleight of Hand is not my favorite of the series, but it's entertaining. You can't just skip over it because I wasn't all that impressed, now can you?
