The Moonstone (version 2)

Gelesen von Tony Addison

(3,696 Sterne; 23 Bewertungen)

Said to be the first detective novel ever written, it is wonderful for its blending of the intrigues of romance with the conventional sleights of hand of the mystery novel. Marvellous also for its sensitive portrayal of traditionally outsider characters - the hunchbacked girl who dies for love, the dying Jewish doctor who enables resolution of the mystery, the tricky Hindu conjurors who only seek the restoration of their sacred gem. Hilarious at times, The Moonstone is also a deeply felt example of the storyteller's art. - Summary by Tony Addison (24 hr 29 min)

Absorbing story

(5 Sterne)

I think this was recorded at too slow a speed, but that is easily remedied by increasing the speed when you listen. The plot twists, the different narrators, the surprisingly ( for that time) liberal observations on the effects of imperialism, the class system and racial discrimination, and the excellent reader (once adjusted) make this a compelling, absorbing story.

Carefully crafted mystery story

(5 Sterne)

The recording was made at too slow a speed. Adjust to your taste during the first chapter and you will be good to go. The reader’s tone and accent let you get the feel of the period and place in which the tale is set. I really liked it.

Narrator monotone and slow

(1 Sterne)

I absolutely love this book and decided to listed rather than re read it. This narrator is so slow and if you speed it up he still doesn't work for me. He's pretty expressionless and dull. Finding it tedious to listen to.

(3 Sterne)

Decent book. The narrator reads rather slowly and and somewhat monotone but if the reading rate is sped up it is ok.

Uncomfortable narration

(2 Sterne)

Bizarre narration, the long pauses seem unnatural. It’s uncomfortable listening.

Narrator is unnaturally slow
