A good idea, badly done.
What did you like most about The Amateur Executioner?
I really liked the idea of having factual characters from history rubbing shoulders with the fictional. I thought the Authors handled that really well
What other book might you compare The Amateur Executioner to, and why?
As it has a lot of characters from the Sherlock Holmes stories, including the man himself, I guess it joins the ranks of Sherlock fiction out there.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Martyn Clements?
I'm afraid not. He has to be one of the worst narrators I've ever heard. A robot could have read with more expression and the man can't do accents to save his life. It says something for the book that I was able to keep listening in spite of him.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It's not that type of story.
Any additional comments?
This was a really great idea and I liked the tongue-in-cheek way it was written, but the revilations at the end just didn't make sense to me and the narrator was dreadful, so all in all, a disappointing read.
