Audio Book Summary

was originally published in 1908 and includes all the elements of the classic whodunit – mysterious events, ghostly apparitions, things that go bump in the night and murder. In The Circular Staircase "a middle-aged spinster is persuaded by her niece and nephew to rent a country house for the summer. The house they chose belonged to a bank defaulter who had hidden stolen securities in the walls. The gentle, peace-loving trio is plunged into a series of crimes solved with the help of the aunt."

    The book was good, but there was to many readers and some were hard to understand.

    Readers with accents are a distraction to understanding

    Some of the narrators are difficult to understand which makes it disjointed. However, the story is really good it\'s a thriller it twists and turns and just when you think you know what\'s going on the writer takes you up a different track. It is an excellent story well written and I would recommend it.

    To many narrator changes with some that you couldn’t understand made it difficult to enjoy.

    Always a pleasant surprise when the story you least expect turns out to be such a good one. This is one of those. I unlike others it seems, enjoy the different narrators. Has the feel of sitting at a gathering in the late 1800s passing a book around for each person to read a chapter. I do agree the one women’s accent was very thick, making it difficult to understand. Over all I enjoyed it.

    Great story. I really enjoyed it. It had several narrators offering nearly every accent I can think of. Some were more difficult to understand, one (Russian?) being especially difficult. If she had been the only narrator, I certainly would not have finished the book.
