Recent Review on NPR

Postby djdenver » Tue Feb 24, 2015 10:55 pm

I heard this segment on NPR's Fresh Air earlier today. I thought it a wonderful summary of the entire series, Anthony Horowitz's overall goal in writing the series and what Michael Kitchen has been able to bring to the character of Christopher Foyle. I especially love the last paragraph and his choice of descriptive terms such as "played with quietly barbed charisma" and "bone-dry wryness".

"A man so square you could play checkers on him." LOVE THAT DESCRIPTION!!!! :mrgreen: :foyle1:
Just looked over the chapter on "Horse Racing and Illegal Rambling."

I haven't got the requisite capacity for deceit.

Excellent! I do love a review where the reviewer GETS the subtlety of MK's performance. Very nice. Thanks for posting this, DJ!

Thanks for sharing this, djdenver. There are some really nice lines in this, and as Lesley said, it is a relief when a reviewer understands the brilliance of MK's subtleties.
