The Doctor, his Wife, and the Clock

(5 stars)

Well read. A good short AKG story with a most unusual plot and with strong central characters. Keeps you on edge till the end and doesn't disappoint. Enjoyed listening in one uninterrupted stretch. Thanks!

Good mystery

(4 stars)

Very good short mystery and well.read by Carolin a reader I have been critical of in the past but has gotten so much better and speeded up her readings. Thanks for a great mystery and great job of narration.

(4 stars)

I agree that this is a short but very good tragic mystery. The plot was unique & so we're the characters. Carolin's reading is now at her best. I can understand her well.

Interesting plot, too much emotionalism

(3.5 stars)

Well-developed plot but too much extreme emotionalism. AKG has a way of presenting crimes as done by essentially good-hearted people who are pushed to the breaking point by extreme emotional trauma. In my opinion she takes it too far in this story and asks too much of the reader. But that is true of many Victorian novels, and AKG has a fast-paced style in this book that keeps one's attention.

More tragedy than mystery

(3.5 stars)

Nicely written, well plotted, but with some strange conceits. <small SPOILER> The idea of testing a (blind!) man's sanity by giving him a loaded pistol is, while completely preposterous, surely unique. At least, one hopes so.

(5 stars)

Beautifully read in a slow but accurate voice. This tale is well conceived and made real by Katherine's steady delivery. Thank you.

(1 stars)

the story is far fetched and the reader must be an acquired taste- i found her style too distracting.

Intriguing little mystery

(4 stars)

I enjoyed listening to this tale even though it was ultimately a sad one.
