The Old Man In the Corner

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Baroness Orczy

Narrated By: Unknown

Publisher: LibriVox

Date: January 2011

Duration: 6 hours 22 minutes


Created by Baroness Orczy, author of the famous Scarlet Pimpernel series, The Old Man in the Corner was one of the earliest armchair detectives, popping up with so many others in the wake of the huge popularity of the Sherlock Holmes stories. The Old Man relies mostly upon sensationalistic "penny dreadful" newspaper accounts, with the occasional courtroom visit for extra laughs. He narrates all this information (while tying complicated knots in a piece of string) to a Lady Journalist who frequents the same tea-shop. (Summary from Wikipedia)

    The stories are good, well written but a bit of a "samey" story line which became quite predictable after a while. Narrator was very good, but I don't like it when they try to do the "accents" they sound awkward!
