Great book, great author.
Love Ken Fillet and this series is one of his best. can't wait for the next in the series.
Pratchett at his best.
one of the earlier Disneyworld and all the better for it. I got strange looks while waiting in a hospital fir my mum as I was chuckling to myself.
Really Good, just wish it was longer.
I could have listened for hours to the exploits of 'the man with the Nissa Micra' as he decides to become an assassin and blunders his way around. Brilliantly written and narrated, left me wanting more.

I had this in my wish list for a long time, so when this months credit came up I finally downloaded it. A brilliant story that keeps you hooked.
I bought this after Professor Moriarty and the Hound of the Durbervilles, which was excellent.
I didnt enjoy this one just as much but it is still very good and well worth the credit.
The way the story is woven in with history and fictional characters from different stories is very skillful and I would recommend this author highly.

I have only read one of Brysons books before and found this to be in the same lighthearted, yet educational style. Had me chuckling outloud.

I listen to audiobooks while I do housework etc to make the time go a bit quicker and I found myself clearing out wardrobes simply to listen to the next chapter. I am not a huge Sherlock holmes fan but I know the basic characters and they are all woven very skillfully in this excellent tale.I would recommend to anyone.

Downloaded this to keep me company while I dectorated 2 bedrooms on my own. I had really enjoyed reading (and watching) 'Pillars of the Earth' and this is set 200 years later in Kingsbridge Cathedral. I thoroughly enjoyed it even to the point of listening to it when I went to bed, which is somethiing I never do. The narrator is excellent, giving every character a voice but not overdoing it.
