really liked it
bookshelves: audio, mystery
Read from September 22 to 23, 2011

I "read" this as an audiobook. I had been listening desultorily until about the seventh or eighth chapter when I looked it up on the web and discovered that what I had taken for the unintentionally humorous effects of its date of authorship were intended. Although some of its jokes are now antique it is very funny in its way. It seems quite like movies of its era - Aunt Bosket (sp?) reads like a combination of Margaret Rutherford as Miss Marple and Margaret Dumont as the upper class lady of a certain age she played in the Marx brothers' movies. It has everything: the gothic, a seance, a love story and a mystery. The version I heard was from WMA audiobook and was read by Maureen O'Brien.
