    Desert Island drama

    This collection is a treat, what with Sîan Phillips, Anna Massey, and many other brilliant actors shine throughout nearly seventeen hours of dramatized James! I particularly enjoyed Robin Ellis in the role of Dalgliesh. Although I knew whodunnit in these stories simply because I’ve been a James fan since I was a young teenager, I still loved listening to the mysteries as they unfolded once more. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a good British mystery with well done dramatizations from such talented actors.

    A Different Sort of Experience

    Hearing these excellent BBC dramas is a joy. First, it's a chance to sample, refresh, or renew some really great mysteries by a master, P.D. James. Secondly, it's a way to experience old favorites in a new way. There are stories here featuring both Adam Dalgliesh and Cordelia Gray, James' wonderful detectives. Each appears in more than one episode and is portrayed by more than one fine British actor. The collection includes works from several stages of James' career. And the stories are, of course, much shorter than the original works from which they are abridged. Nobody is better than the BBC at reminding us why radio dramas are so much fun! These selections are perfect for car drives, bedtime listens, and sharing with others.

    If you like PD James

    You’ll love this compilation of radio plays. Very well done, and with some bonus interviews of the author at the end. Also, if you know the BBC TV productions, you may be surprised that these are not identical. And if you love the books, you’ll find the radio plays are VERY close to them. Wish I could find more!

    Classy

    These are classy, full-on adaptations of several PD James novels: mostly Dalgliesh stories, but there are two Cordelia Greys here as well. The collection includes the story I think of as James’s masterpiece, A Taste For Death. The adaptations follow the plots of the originals closely, though POV is often changed to better meet the requirements of the medium. (Most commonly, third-person narration is changed to first-person.) I really have only one complaint: as with many recent BBC omnibus collections, there is no index of tracks, nor is there a comprehensive list of cast members. There really should be a PDF with this information.

    Too bad I couldn't hear it.

    Quality of the sound fluctuated to badly I couldn't understand the stories. I am so sad about this because I love P.D. James. Long time listener, Mary Banco

    An Audio-Drama for Mystery Lovers

    Most mystery novel fans have read PD James at some time or another, whether you are a fan of murder mysteries, British detectives, strong storylines that carry through a series of books, or simply a fan of great writing. This collection of seven stories is intense and yet the length of each is not so long as to become mind-numbing when casting back to earlier details. The voices are distinct enough to differentiate from each other, but I, an American reader, did not recognize the voices as belonging to anyone other than the characters in the story. The stories are, for the most part, propelled by the dialogue so there is minimal narration by non-characters. I'd love to hear more of these audio-dramas! #suspense #dialogue #tagsgiving #sweepstakes #whodunnit

    Excellent murder mystery

    My first PD James book, and at first I found the stories a little hard to follow, she uses a lot of characters. She does an excellent job of defining the characters as the story develops.

    Great stories

    I loved all the stories P D James is one of my favourite authors she the master of weaving a story. The only one I didn’t enjoy was the one that stopped and then started again with the cast of the show each time, but on the whole I really enjoyed it.

    Almost

    An example of inconsistent quality. Voices are 75% good, with a couple of “stingers” who not only had shrill painful voices but off sounding cadence.

    Somewhat utopian crime stories but entertaining

    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.

    Nichts für Leserinnen

    Nach 3 Geschichten musste ich abbrechen. PD James ist eine dieser Autorinnen, die andere Frauen hasst und beneidet. Die weiblichen Charaktere sind fast durchweg böse, rachsüchtig, berechnend und selbstsüchtig. Die Männer können gar nichts für ihre Verbrechen, wurden von Frauen verführt und dazu getrieben. Erfolgreiche Frauen haben Abtreibungen wie Zahnreinigungen und benutzen diese um die armen Männer zu erpressen. Kluge Frauen sind auch regelhaft schlechte Mütter und Ehebrecherinnen. Weniger Literatur und mehr Therapie hätten Ms. James sicher gut getan...
