This is the best audiobook Ive listened to this year! There's so much detail and its so well narrated. Fascinating... definitely a must for Harry Potter geeks.

Stephen Fry's performance is excellent. The stories are interesting but quite a few are not plausible given modern scientific knowledge. However it gives a very interesting insight into the beliefs and ideas of the time they were written. So definitely worth a listen regatdless.

I love the whole Phryne Fisher series but this has to be the best plot, best food, best decor and best costumes!

Dont be put off by the first story which is quite soppy. There are a lot of really fantastic short stories here which have awesome surprise endings which will have you hitting the rewind button to listen again.

I love Agatha Christie short stories!

Hugh Fraser reads Poirot books really really well. These are fun and varied short stories which work well for listening before bed.
