Best of the Post Sherlock Holmes Novels Genre
What made the experience of listening to The Spiritglass Charade the most enjoyable?
There are many novels copying the Sherlock Holmes genre and some are quite good; such as the Mary Rusell series. Colleen Gleason's books are of the best of the genre. I have read the 2 in the series and will check weekly in hopes of another. I have literally listened to over a thousand audiobooks in the past 2 decades (back to the cassettes of Recorded Books) and it was clearly among the most fun....even for a late sixty curmudgeon.
What did you like best about this story?
The period description of the London background of the novel. The fun inherent in listening to it. This is a book meant to be enjoyed lightly but very much enjoyed and the narration is part of that.
What about Jayne Entwhistle’s performance did you like?
She sounds just like an intelligent woman in that period of London would seem to me accurate...sassy, factual, irreverent towards the mores of the times regarding "women"; >ie: "a strange foreign creature who knows her own mind". This a lighthearted novel that Ms. Entwhistle conveys excellently.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
No - because it was the flow of the fun of the book, not any point, that made it so enjoyable.
Any additional comments?
The Spirit Glass Charade contains a number of superstitions of the period; including "Spirit Talking" and "Vampires".
