Really struggling to listen.

Where does The Harry Starke Series: Books 1-3 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Quite low in my list to be honest but not the worst.

The main problem for me is that it rambles, for instance you don't just meet new characters you get a two page rundown on what they're wearing, where they bought the clothes and why there's a stain on the shirt!

Harry himself is not particularly likeable, he's a womaniser and some of the comments on the women's appearances are straight out of the 70's, they actually made me cringe in places; the narrator didn't help either, but more on that below.

Hoping it improves as I'd really like to have found a new crime series to listen to and the plot ideas are there but...


Would you recommend The Harry Starke Series: Books 1-3 to your friends? Why or why not?

No I'm afraid not, only because the first book and the narrator are so cheesy.


What didn’t you like about Tom Lennon’s performance?

I have to say his performance is at times quite wooden, almost as though he's reading it a word or two at a time with no expression to speak of.

I've been spoiled recently as been listening a lot to Scott Brick, Ray Chase and Jeff Harding and they're very hard acts to follow, but even so it is pretty bad.

I see the rest of the series are narrated by the same guy, this made me very sad and I'm not sure I'm going to be able to continue.

I'm pushing on but the robotic performance is really starting to get to me!


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not so far, certainly not the murders of his daily conquests, yawn.


Any additional comments?

I'm afraid the narrator reminds me of my husband reading to our children at bedtime in the early 80's, it worked a treat as it sent them to sleep within a few minutes. The same thing is happening to me!
