Audible Editor Reviews

Arthur Upfield's The Bone is Pointed follows Inspector Bonaparte who solves mysteries in the Australian outback. Published in the 1940's, this story not only offers up a good mystery but also a portrait of the aborigines and Australia in the early 20th century. Peter Hoskig tackles this story with verve. He speaks with a clear Australian accent while developing the characters believably, giving each his own attributes. Meanwhile, his varied pacing makes the story easy to follow. Mystery lovers and history buffs alike will have fun with the Inspector Bonaparte Mysteries.

Click "next" if you are on the fence for this one

This book is cookie cutter, if you listen to the first half hour and stop it, then write on a piece of paper what you think the ending will be - you will be right, as a matter of fact unless this is the first book you have ever read, nothing happens in this story that is not predictable. I ended up listening to the whole thing thinking that something had to happen to take it out of the mould, but it never did, it just plods along like a high school writing project.
better use of your time out there, not recommended.

A fine Boney Novel

I discovered the Boney series about 10 years ago. I am glad that Audible has made them available. This is one of the better reads of the series, an early book in the series and one that gives a good introduction to Detective Bonaparte and Austrailia in the 1930s.
