Easy Listening

(4 Sterne)

This is a cute girl's playing detective story. It was silly and enjoyable, although at times a bit preposterous. Overall worth a listen for the commute to work. I would like to compliment all the readers. Everyone who read did a really terrific job and any one of these readers could do a solo narration. I think the reading was better than the story!

Didn't read

I do wish this app would allow you to delete a review. I previously wrote a review which said there was an issue with the audio of this book. Turns out the issue was with my headphones. No idea what the book is like, but this was my only way to correct the misinformation I had given.

Sweet story

(4 Sterne)

This is light reading and really not too much mystery behind it. It is also a bit predictable; but I still enjoyed it. A few of the chapters were a bit rough due to echoes but overall this is a wonderful book worth a listen.

Great story!

(4,5 Sterne)

Great story! Only Goliath is not a dog. The description is wrong. It's a cat and a cute one at that. The other thing is one recording was very bad quality so it was very hard to hear them.

Great Story & Narration

(5 Sterne)

I enjoyed this mystery very much! The story was interesting and the narration was excellent! I’d like to make one correction to the summary tho: Goliath is a cat, not a dog!

Historical mystery

(4 Sterne)

Good story if a little trite. Quality of the readers uneven. Good way for kids to get a taste of the continued impact of the Late Unpleasantness several decades after the fact.

Surprising & Exiting Story

(4,5 Sterne)

The story was nice and I enjoyed the readers too. The two detectives were nice, my favorite might have been Cinthya. I like like this author a lot.
