Gaudy Night well read

by Merrily T on Apr 27, 2012

"Gaudy Night" has long been one of my favorite mysteries, not only for the developing relationship between Harriet Vane and Lord Peter Wimsey, but for its wonderful portrait of Oxford - the city is a true "character" in the book and indeed, central to the book's theme. For those who like mysteries set in academia, this is one of the earliest and best. Sayers makes scholarly integrity - and the issue of intellectual honesty vs. romantic sentimentality - the question at the center of the book's "whodunnit." It had been many years since I'd read the book, and listening to it in this audio version was perfect - I heard things I'd missed in my earlier readings, and found that I was appreciating familiar passages even more.
