Arthur Upfield's books as read by Peter Hosking are always delightful. They keep me listening to the very end, with never a dull moment. Upfield's descriptive talent is unbelievable - his Australia is so vivid. He's witty and charming, just like his main character, Detective Inspector Napoleon Bonaparte. Upfield is a master of character development, at least with the primary characters in each story. Besides Bonaparte, there's always at least one character that is sketched in high relief, and the reader always gets a good feel for even the minor characters.
But Peter Hosking - he MAKES the audiobooks. What a talented narrator and what a pleasure it is to listen to him!
Widows of Broome is not my favorite Upfield book - there are others that are more captivating, descriptive, involved - but it's still quite good and worth every minute.
Would love to see more of Arthur Upfield's books read by Peter Hosking available on Audible!
The Upfield stories need no embellishment, nor do they need incorrect pronunciations. It is not hard to ask someone if you are not sure how to pronounce a particular word, name or place. Please, more care.
