Reviews

Worth listening to

(4 stars)

I enjoyed this story and the narration. True the heroine is different. I would maybe call her eccentric, or even naive. Not as annoying as some of the reviewers said. The narration was good and easy to listen to. I think the worst book can be good if the narration is tolerable. Some of the books on Librivox have such terrible narration I cannot even listen to them. This one is good.

Edge of my seat!

(4 stars)

A piece of high melodrama and fast action involving a beautiful, amoral woman, an honest lawyer (no joke!), and a suitably dense and rather helpless heroine. The reader's charming southern US accent makes her stylised attempt at British accents and folksy mispronunciations of French placenames a lot of fun. Thank you Allyson!

The Angel of Terror.

(3 stars)

Excellent story! Great enthusiasm by the reader. I would like to suggest that a reader do some research on pronunciations prior to recording to ease in fluidity.

Silly story but very entertaining

(4 stars)

The readers voice is so pleasant to listen to and her attempts at forreign accents funny. The story itself was naive and a bit dumb.

(5 stars)

deep enuf to be interesting. simple enuf to catch on to.

Difficult to Listen To!

(3 stars)

The story is far fetched and dated but you still want to see how it ends. The difficulty is in the reader - the mispronounciations and strange accents and intonation make it almost impossible to listen to. I am downloading the other version to hear the ending because I am so frustrated with the reader. I'd like to hear the ending but don't know if I can handle the crazy "Carol Channing" type accent so I'll try the other version.

A bit disappointing

(2 stars)

I found the heroine to be overly thick-headed, unbelievably so. I have listened to three Edgar Wallace novels and this one is the worst of the three. It just was, IMHO unbelievable and irritating. EW's other two novels that are also available on Libravox were delightful and interesting. This one just falls short.
