Would you consider the audio edition of The China Governess to be better than the print version?
Have not read the print version.
Would you recommend The China Governess to your friends? Why or why not?
Yes, I enjoyed this book, although I found it the most confusing of all the Campion books. I am reading them all in order, and will grieve when they are done.
Which character – as performed by David Thorpe – was your favorite?
I liked Julia so much, as I find young people with firm, strong personalities and self-knowledge to be refreshing.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Might have been less confusing if I had. Yes.
Any additional comments?
Although "legend" has it that Allingham wrote these novels as an imitation of Dorothy Sayers, she was immensely talented. Campion is a fantastic character and the sense of atmosphere, especially over the decades, is thorough. Allingham IS as good as Sayers, and that is saying a huge amount in my book!
David Thorpe, as always, is non-traditional and excellent.
