I agree!

(5 Sterne)

I agree completely with the first reviewer. I love Sax Rohmer's books, and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this reading. Thank you to the reader and Librivox.

Love hate relationship with this book

(4 Sterne)

The slipper of a prophet has been stolen and brought to a museum. The followers of that prophet seek to retrieve that slipper, and will stop at nothing to do it, including murder. Professor Cavanagh becomes the keeper of that slipper and finds himself pursued by thieves, religious fanatics, and a mysterious woman with violet eyes. I liked the mystery of this book, and I liked the reader, the book was wonderfully read. I found some of the scenes annoying because the hero was a bit of a clodpole at times. All in all it was a mostly good book with a neat ending. Kudos to the reader for her excellent voice which fit in well with the tone of the story. A mildly tinny sound on the recording; GE filtered it out fine.

BETTER THAN FU MANCHU

(5 Sterne)

Fu Manchu doubtless lent itself easily to the movies. but this tale, very similar in essence, was much better. Rohmer has great imaginative powers which enable him to tell stories through brief moments of peril or perplexity. This would not succeed with everyone, but it does with him. And it certainly does not hurt that the narration is perfection itself, both in pace and tone.

(1 Sterne)

Boring plot and repetitive events. This was my first novel by Sax Rohmer and probably the last! i guess having gone through novels from H. Rider Haggard, this novel did not meet the same standards. Reader though did a good job.

great narration, good story

(4 Sterne)

Narrator is absolute joy to listen to. the storyline though is not that exciting or out of the ordinary. it's almost predictable Ford most parts

Strange, creepy tale

(5 Sterne)

This is a dark one. It’s not a book you can put down now, or in this case stop listening to. :-)

(5 Sterne)

This was the best book of the author so far. Very compelling and the narrator did an excellent job, thank you!

excellent!

(5 Sterne)

Excellent, excellent, excellent on all accounts!!! do not start this before bed or you will be up all night!
