These crime stories are slow-paced and features many weird upper-class characters, but they are thoroughly entertaining. It is sometimes hard to guess if these stories are set in the 40s or 80s as all of them are populated by Lords, Ladies, butlers and maids. So if you're into social revolution and the rise of the working classes -- this isn't your cup of tea. But if you can appreciate human tragedy even in its most aristocratic forms, you'll enjoy these recordings as much as I did.

I absolutely love these detective stories and the BBC recordings are simply amazing. The sound effects are pleasantly understated, the voice acting is great, and I fell head over heels in love with the musical score. The jazzy version of Shakespeare's "Sad Cypress" gave me goosebumps, and I also liked the instrumental swing music and oriental pieces which illustrate the different settings. This audiobook is a treat and the best way to spend a sleepless night.

When the boom first came out, I attended a public reading with the author in Germany. Katja Kettu read in Finnish, afterwards a translator read the same passages in German. In between, there were stunning performances of Finnish tango. I loved Kettu's Gothic outfit and her voice, and the German translation was extremely touching and powerful. So I was really looking forward to this audiobook in English. But although the reader has a pleasant voice, the audiobook was disappointing. This is due to the awful English translation. Besides, the reader is struggling with all foreign language expressions. As a native speaker of German, I sometimes had to listen twice to understand phrases in German.

I am not entirely sure what to say about this audiobook. The novel itself is a true classic of German literature and full of Enlightenment sophistication, but in terms of narrative beauty and plot development, it is greatly inferior to British and French works such as 'Clarissa' and 'Les liaisons dangereuses'. This is why I am aware that this book isn't easy to perform at all, but the producers could have chosen a younger-sounding and more passionate reader. The novel mainly consists in letters written by a young lady to her childhood friend, so I would have expected a more youthful female voice actor. I generally like the reader's voice, which is warm and soothing, but it doesn't fit the production. A more lively performance also could have wiped out some of the overcomplexities and repetitions of the source material. All in all, the audiobook is not an utter disappointment, but much less entertaining than I could have been.

This early Gothic novel is a true classic, and the reader has a pleasant voice, but I find her fake French accents exaggerated and distracting. I would have preferred a straightforward narration. The style of the novel is already extravagant enough.

Very entertaining and well performed. I especially like the Yiddish songs which the detective performs in one episode. And well, his regular tête-à-têtes with his girlfriend are really very sexy. Maybe the 40s were less prudish than we all thought... ;-)

Aufgeklärte Verbraucher möchten durch bewussten Konsum die Welt verändern. Warensiegel für ökologischen Anbau, faire Produktions- und Handelsbedingungen geben dem Kunden ein gutes Gefühl. Doch die Mechanismen funktionieren nicht, den Erzeugern der Handelswaren werden die Erträge mit dem guten Gewissen vorenthalten. Sina Trinkwalder, eine der profiliertesten und streitbarsten deutschen Unternehmerinnen, spricht Klartext: Wer profitiert? Wie werden Bauern und Handwerker tatsächlich behandelt? Was sind die blutigen Seiten des Gutmenschenbusiness?

Obwohl ich vieles, was hier erklärt wird, schon wusste (Milchvermarktung beim Discounter, schlechte Arbeitsbedingungen in Fair-trade Betrieben usw.), hat mich das Hörbuch sehr zum Nachdenken angeregt. Es fasst die wichtigsten Themen der heutigen Lebensmittelwirtschaft gut zusammen und bietet auch einen Einblick in die Argumente und Denkweisen der Handelsvertreter. So kann man sich seine eigene Meinung bilden und seine eigenen Kaufentscheidungen treffen.

Staffel 1 war viel besser. Performance ist natürlich toll, aber die Story driftet zu sehr in Folter und Exorzismus ab. Schade um die guten Charaktere, die für diese Effekte "verheizt" werden. :-(
