A great series of short stories

Classic Ellery deducing clues from a series of mysteries based on the months of the year. This series exemplifies what makes the Queen stories so enjoyable -- readable, intelligent, without using the same canned deductive techniques. It is great fun to match wits with Ellery Queen!

Fun stories, irritating narration

Always fun in plot twists, but the narration suffers from poor pronunciations, awkwardly choppy cadences, and a nasal quality to the narrator's voice that grows tiresome at best and deeply irritating at worst.

okay

The Ellery Queen stories I liked The character voices were good, some very good But the narrator’s own reading voice is rather stentorian (like Ted Baxter reading the news) - I found it too difficult to get past this and just enter into the story.

Quick Hits of Queen

Collection of 1950s-60s mystery shorts. Nothing superb, as they hinge on a little thi g here or there, and a few rather poor (the tobacconist is a groaner), but still quite fun

Pretty good stories

This is a collection of short stories. Most are pretty good. A couple bored me, so I moved to the next one.
