Reviews

iffy.


(1 stars)

an alright book with some awful readers. Jon Locke in particular should NEVER read aloud again. just the worst most monotone lazy reading. awkward pacing. putting emphasis on almost every 4th word for some reason?? he singlehandedly destroys this version. some of the other folks do passable jobs. Howard Skyman was amazing. 👏 you sir were the very best reader. I could listen to you for days. Paul Hampton was pretty good too.

TWO FAIRLY GOOD ONES


(5 stars)

TWO typical Nick Carter mysteries, terse and successful. It would enhance the reading experience if we simply focussed on the story, not especially the readers. I have also complained about readers, but only because they were apparently non-English speakers and were totally impossible to understand. Some of the readers of this work perhaps read in an unusual manner. but they could be understood. I am appreciative of that!

Good yarn.

A couple of the reader's were not very good but overall well read.
