Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 5/9/2011

    " Published in 1966, near the end of the Wolfe series, Death of a Doxy is not Stout's best, but it does have some interesting features: Wolfe takes on a case for no fee, a case that hits close to home as one of his operatives, Orrie Cather, is suspected of murder. "

    " Audio Book. Nero Wolfe is entertaining. This book was better than I remember the last one I read. I'll look for more Nero Wolfe books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Niffer | 4/28/2011

    " Another real classic. Great characters. I think Julie Jaquette is probably my favorite female character in all the Nero Wolfe books. She's got class. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Coyle | 3/29/2011

    " Props on a well-written and easy to read book, even if the plot was a bit... unengaging. Sometimes in the book I felt like Stout really wanted to write Noir, but just couldn't bring himself to do it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alex | 1/10/2011

    " Last in a recent run of Rex Stout books. I liked this one quite a bit partly because it nicely highlighted Nero Wolfe's ethical ambiguity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hobart | 10/11/2010

    " one of Stout's best--mystery was decent, but the characters were great. Julie Jaquette is a treasure--the scene where she ties Cramer in knots is worth the purchase price alone (if not more than that).

    Very satisfactory "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 J. | 7/3/2010

    " One of the better Nero Wolf stories. Published in 1966, it still retains enough of the classic 1950's detective style to satisfy. Less Nero in this one than most but the unusually strong female character Julie Jaquette more than makes up for it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deborah | 7/15/2009

    " "The young princes had been dead for five centuries, and Wolfe had once spent a week investigating that case, after which he removed More's UTOPIA from his bookshelves because More had framed Richard III".
    -- Archie Goodwin, in Death of a Doxy

    Enough said :-) "

    " Terry Teachout posted an encomium to Rex Stout on his blog a few days ago, which reminded me that I used to like his Nero Wolfe stories. Actually I cared nothing about Wolfe, I liked Archie. I've read a bunch of them, this is the only title I remember. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica Frank | 11/3/2008

    " One of my favorites. Strong character development. "

    " More Rex Stout. Neat littler twists and turns. This one kept me guessing. "
