has anyone noticed that lord peter wimsey is rather likme the scarlet pimpernel?
Actually yes, he is a bit like the scarlet pimpernel. People see him as a silly excentric nobleman and not as the intelligent creature he is.
I'm usually not that fond of reading detective stories, but Dorothy L. Sayers has become one of my favourite authors. I suppose it's because her novels aren't just about the crime and how to solve a case. It's the characters I find interesting.
Hello! My name is Yuliya and I stopped by to ask a question. I haven't read any of Sayers' books but heard many good things, so I decided to try to listen to them. Our library network has 3 different copies of Whose Body? - narrated by Nadia May, Roe Kendall, and David Case. Some other books from the series are narrated by Ian Carmichael; possibly , there are other narrators as well. Does anyone have an opinion on whose narrating is better?
Also, should the books be read in the order they were written or is any other order better? Thanks.
yuliya, (boy this is a late answer LOL)the harriet vane stories should DEFINETLY be read in order. i don't listen to books on tape so i have no idea about that. and kattt, i always thought it was a shame lesley howard didn't play wimsey, he looked just like wimsey's description:)
I am during a presentation for my British Lit class and i basicly need to be Dorothy Sayers for the class and tell eveyone about me how would you present this.
I'm new here, but I just want to post and let folks here know that not only was Sayers a mystery author she was a scholar, so I don't think she can be accused of being intellectually pretensious.
