Patrick Tull reads Ellis Peters ... Great!!!

I have been an Ellis Peters fan for many years, and I found the Books-on-Tape Brother Cadfael books, that were read by Patrick Tull, in my local library years ago. I was dissappointed to NOT find them at Audible when I became a member. I am now enjoying myself listening to them again as Audible aquires them.

Patrick Tull is a wonderful reader. He seems to really enjoy the very texture of Ellis Peters' words, and this makes the Brother Cadfael books even better than they already are.

Thanks Audible - and thanks for getting the Ellis Peters "Inspector Felse" mysteries, too. Please get ALL of the B-O-T Ellis Peters recordings!!!!
