Would you listen to The Norfolk Mysteries again? Why?
I will definitely listen again, to work out how the book seemed to be over before it really started when I listened the first time. The 8 or so hours of reading seemed to all happen at the same pace so the ending wasn't climactic or anticlimactic as it was all the same level.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Norfolk Mysteries?
The sex scene. I was expecting a cosy mystery!
What does Mike Grady bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
I don't know because I haven't read the book.
Any additional comments?
I decided to try this on a whim and because a 'murder in a vicarage' and the cover made it appear as if it would be a bit Agatha Christie like. Instead the murder was in the church and the book started with a lot of the main character's back history and it was all quite modern and realistic. Not at all a cosy mystery.Good, but not what I was after.

I enjoyed this book, full of period detail. not the sort of book I usually go for and it made a nice change.
I liked the characters, the story was a little long but gentle and amusing in places.
