Oh, what a lovely...series

This is th sixth time I have listened to this audio book and it's as fresh and entertaining as the first. If you have yet to discover the Mary Russell canon start with the first one, The Beekeeper's Apprentice and prepare to become obsessed! All the books are brilliantly narrated by Jenny Sterlin and Laurie R King's writing is not only entertaining and literate her imagination knows no bounds. Unfortunately Audible does not carry all the books but they can be bought on CD from Whole Story audiobooks. I love the original Sherlock Holmes books and this series is the perfect way to follow Holmes after his retirement.

Major disappointment

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A complete rewrite is the only thing that could go close.

What was most disappointing about Laurie R. King’s story?

Poor story - bland and lacklustre narration.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jenny Sterlin?

Emilia Fox

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from O Jerusalem?

All of them

Any additional comments?

This only held my interest for about half an hour by which time I was just about ready to slash my wrists. As an avid Sherlock Holmes fan I have to say that this offering is an affront to the memory of Sir Arthur.
