High quality reading

(5 Sterne)

The evil yellow genius has returned to London from China to further his goals of political subversion of the Western order to prepare for the rise of China and the East to world dominance. In truth, he does minimal subverting in this novel. Fu Manchu is mostly pre-occupied here with staying a step ahead of the dogged pursuit of Nayland Smith. These stories are generally disregarded today - discredited as "racist" - as if that would be a reason not to read them. Rather, in addition to the entertaining action and intriguing baroque strategies of the evil genius, we can also get a bonus study of perhaps somewhat unhealthy racial attitudes from the late height of the British empire. Wonderfully read by Elaine Tweddle. She masters an astounding array of accents! Many thanks.

Good Mystery

(5 Sterne)

This was my first introduction to Fu Manchu. I have since started a book "Ten Years Beyond Baker Street" where Sherlock Holmes meets Fu Manchu. I found this to be a wonderful audio book. Wonderfully read by Elaine Tweddle. She does a great job with multiple characters! Story: 5 stars Reader: 5 stars Will I listen to again: yes!

Great novel

(5 Sterne)

The storyline is interesting, I actually found myself thinking things were going in one direction and wound up totally in a different direction. You have to love that type of unpredictability. On top of that, a happy ending! What's not to like about this story? Reader was very good, she did a great job with her voices.

A classic, well read!

(5 Sterne)

I'm getting better acquainted with Rohmer's work and finding it very entertaining. The reader did an excellent job of bringing the characters "to life", which makes the difference between a good story that's fun to listen to and one that gets rejected after a couple of chapters. Thank you for your hard work!

Super Villain!

(5 Sterne)

It's not just any dastardly fiend, it's the malevolent, vitriolic king of creepy, Dr.FuManchu, made all the more vile & detestable by virtue of whom he victimized, the rat! I just love a completely amoral Villain, don't you?

top narration

(5 Sterne)

The storyline is very typical, almost predictable many times. but the best part is narration, the reader has done an outstanding job of bringing alive each character. thanks for all the effort

suspense!

(5 Sterne)

who could expect such a dated and frequently melodramatic story to keep one on the edge of one's seat? but it does. The reader is superb. Im listening to another Fu book next!

I WANT TO SEE CARAMENA

(5 Sterne)

Another enjoyable Fu Manchu novel. The author's style is certainly unusual, but the reader uses it to great advantage. On to the next one.
