At the top of the stairs she paused. The emotions of divers on spring-boards, leading-ladies on opening nights, and lumpy, be-striped young men on the day of the Big Game, crowded through her.

Babes in the Woods was the first professionally sold story by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1919. It is a short story of a boy missing his first kiss after it was denied by his girl. The story is about Fitzgerald's meeting with Ginevra King and their missed kiss.

Listener Opinions

    " this was ok. I didn't get into the main characters like I have with Louise Penny's Inspector Gamache series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Winkie | 2/13/2014

    " A pretty snappy, up-to-date mystery. Interesting characters, somewhat off stereotype. A good starter for discussing lying, religious fanatacism, neurotic parents, and good sleuthing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Patty | 2/12/2014

    " Another Inspector Wexford. There is nothing here to dislike and the story is mostly unpredictable, even when you think you have it all figured out, you may only have part of it. Good book, good story telling. Nothing wrong. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 2/11/2014

    " Perfect British mystery, well plotted and written, with great characters and plot twists. Rendell has been a standout for so long, and deservedly so. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nina | 2/11/2014

    " I enjoyed it. I will definitely be reading more Ruth Rendell. Why only 3 stars--I liked it. It wasn't amazing. It didn't change my life. But it was a nice, fast, mystery read. The end dragged a bit for me--but I find that endings often do. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chloe | 1/25/2014

    " good book really enjoy the Wexford character. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joanne | 1/18/2014

    " I enjoyed this very much. I'm going to be sad when I've read through all her books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pam | 1/18/2014

    " Another solid installment in the Chief Inspector Wexford series. Ruth Rendell is a must-read for me. Her stories are always engaging and well-written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy | 12/26/2013

    " Solid read, though it took Inspector Wexford and company an awful long time to jump to the obvious conclusions. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Dfordoom | 12/21/2013

    " Tedious, annoying, preachy. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 12/19/2013

    " Murder mystery set in England, but didn't really ever capture me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maribeth | 12/8/2013

    " Probably the first Rendell I read. As a fan of the British whodunit, I'm always ready for an Inspector Wexford mystery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 International Cat Lady | 12/5/2013

    " This book was OK. It was a solid mystery set in rural England... but it very slow to get going, and never really grabbed me. And I had a pretty good idea of who the bad guys were going to end up being from fairly early on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 9/25/2013

    " I thought the story was interesting but it went on a bit too long. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Debbie | 9/24/2013

    " nice entertaining, quick read. Not her best though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cathleen | 9/19/2013

    " I really enjoyed reading the book, but I wasn't completely enamored of how Rendell structured the ending. It's constructed like an Agatha Christie novel, when the detective explains everything at the end to astonished listeners. It was definitely a good read,though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Helene | 9/15/2013

    " I liked the English-ness of it. The writing was decent. I'll read another of hers and then decide. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Debbie Barney | 6/28/2013

    " Ahh, Rendell: she sure knows how to tell an interesting, well-paced story. All the rain made me long for some here in not-yet-we-enough California! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynda Kelly | 6/26/2013

    " This always brings to mind the Brighton Schoolgirl Murders back in the 1980's. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wilma Rebstock | 5/26/2013

    " I thought this was a pretty good story but I can't say I liked or cared much about either the characters or the outcome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kel | 5/25/2013

    " Read this awhile ago. I either love what Rendell does or appreciate that the writing is elegant, but not much else. This was a middling Rendell for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie Christiano | 5/13/2013

    " Interesting. First one and may be series with Wexler. Big holes in the plot to fall through. Big ones, but intriguing characters and some nice twists thrown in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie Jem | 5/9/2013

    " I checked this out on cassette from the library so I would have something to listen to in my car. The only other Wexford mystery I have read is From Doon with Death, and this one was much better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy | 5/6/2013

    " Listening to this on audio during my commute. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristin | 4/24/2013

    " Rendell is the consummate mystery writer - a modern day Christie! Always love her books (she's rather prolific) - love her dark humour and the suspense is a killer! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 4/5/2013

    " One of the better of the Inspector Wexford mysteries -- which is saying a lot. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacey | 3/29/2013

    " More hysterical women and now domestic violence to boot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 2/25/2013

    " Very good, keeps you guessing until the end! "
