Reviews

That Affair Next Door

(5 stars)

I keep thinking as I read AKG's novels that I will eventually catch on to her formula and be able to guess the true culprit soon after the start. Silly me.... Another great story with twist and turns that double back on themselves so thoroughly and make for a superb read at a sometimes breakneck pace. This book was also beautifully read and the author made it a joy to listen to.

This is a pretty good mystery novel.

(4.5 stars)

Although a bit too long-winded at times, this is actually a pretty good mystery novel. The mystery itself is delightfully convoluted and complex and I dare anyone to unravel it and guess the murderer before he or she is revealed near the end! Yes, it is that cleverly conceived and written a mystery!! This Librivox volunteer reader is good too.

Affair next door

(5 stars)

Very good murder mystery and one of my favorite AKG books! This has so many twists and turns that I have listened to parts of it twice so as to be sure of the facts laid before us. Very well read by Dawn Larsen one of LibriVox's elite narrators.

More, please!

(5 stars)

Thoroughly enjoyed the plot w/ its multiple twists and turns. Like others by this author, it keeps you guessing. Good narration, too.

Reader is very monotone

(3 stars)

I wish I could review the book, but I can't. It seems to be interesting but reading is very monotone and robotic, I'm not sure whose speaking at any time because everything is read with no intonation indicating different people; also no comas or periods are indicated. I'm going to look for a different version, because I can't understand anything that's going on, and I'm getting frustrated.

very good tale very well read

(5 stars)

I enjoyed it a great deal . Dawn Larson has done a great job of the reading . Some allowances must be made for the language of the era but the story is very well put together and I will be looking for other titles by the same writer and others read by dawn . Thank you both

Great Mystery & Excellent Reader

(5 stars)

I've listened to this audiobook 3 times and it always feels new. There's no way to remember all the twists & turns. This reader, Dawn I think, provides a simple, flawless reading with superb recording quality. I love that her reading style doesn't distract from the story at all. Highly recommend!

Great story

(5 stars)

So who is the woman that was murdered, why was she murdered, and what does the mysterious Ms. Oliver have to do with it? It will have you listening intently. The quality of the recordings is excellent, and the reader is likewise excellent. Enjoy!
