Not totally unabridged

A brilliant book, well read but there were at least 2 stories missing which I wasn't very happy about. It said it was unabridged however, which left me confused.

Some excellent stories

Some excellent stories. However, this should really come into the Abridged section as having read the original physical book there are at 2 stories missing from the original book, There Are No Snakes in Ireland is one (in my opinion the best from the original book) and Duty. If these were included it would get 5 stars from me.

Not all of the stories in the book are here.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Where was the story-There Are No Snakes in Ireland? It is in my copy of the book but was not on the audio.

Okay Collection But 2 Stories Missing!

The original book has 10 stories but here we only get 8. It should really be classed as an abridged book. The two that are missing are "There are no Snakes in Ireland" and "Duty". The former is often cited as the highlight of the book as it won a Edgar Allan Poe Award for best short story and it's really disappointing that it's missing. Why would you omit two of the stories, one of which is supposedly the highlight?

The 8 stories you do get are generally either set in Ireland or are based around a middle/upper class stiff upper lip British businessman/gentry. The latter gets a little bit wearing. The stories themselves are fine with a twist at the end although in a number you could see the twist coming.

Narration is okay although once or twice you could hear the ruffle of pages and it wasn't always obvious when one story ended and the next started.

Not essential Forsyth but any means, more for the completest (although you'll have to track down a paper copy to read the two missing stories!).

Marvellous - as always

Always worth listening to. Can we have more from Mr Forsyth? His stories are well researched and elegantly written.
