I’d read one of the Wolfe novels several years back but wasn’t really grabbed by it. After watching and enjoying the dramatizations of the Nero Wolfe mysteries with Timothy Hutton and Maury Chakin, though, I decided to read one that I’d seen on screen. While this book isn’t making me want to buy the entire output of Mr. Stout, it was a very fun read. Goodwin’s voice is great (“alphabet piano”, heh!), and the mystery was much more understandable than it was in the movie version. (Pause for Yet Another Plea For Subtitles/Captions, Damn It!) There were some ethnic and racial issues that bothered me, but overall I enjoyed it.
