Publisher's Summary

Saturday night. It was not a night to be spending alone, riding a bus. When he was a teenager at the comprehensive, Saturday night without a girl, without a date, without at least your mates to raise hell with, Saturday night alone would have been shameful. One wouldn't want to be seen alone on a Saturday night…. Who are you kidding? That was never your life, Jury, not yours.

Steve West does it again

I am saddened that this is the final performance of Ms. Grimes ' sexy and wonderful Scotland Yard Chief Superintendent. I have all the series in print but never had the opportunity to read them one after another. Using these audiobooks a a respite from horrible traffic jams, I have completed one after another, never minding my yucky commute. Mr. West's inspired performances and all the voices (my favorite is White Ellie, closely followed by Sgt Wiggins) make these treasured books even more memorable. This book was great, loved the children and Bea Slocum and Simeon Pitt.

Entertaining and well thought-out.

Where does The Stargazey rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Can't place it I've listened to over 200!


What other book might you compare The Stargazey to and why?

Can't say, I've read far to many books to start comparing.


What about Steve West’s performance did you like?

One the best performers/narrators that I've listened to. I will actually try books just because he is narrating. On of the best female voice portrayals for a male performer so far. Steve West and Simon Prebble are my favourite male narrators.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.


Any additional comments?

I've enjoyed this whole series with the exception of the Deer Leap, The Lamorna Wink, and Dust. The first two I mention I found upsetting, and Dust was just all over the place; made very little sense. (The talking animals were a bit much!)
