  • Lacks Usual Spark

    Mrs. Pollifax heads to China to find out the location of a forced labor camp so the CIA can free a political prisoner. As much as I love the series, this is a disappointment. It reads more like a travelogue for too much of the book, which doesn't give the plot enough time when it is finally tries to go somewhere.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The devil's in the details

    Enjoyed this story, but it strains credulity how mrs pollifax could reach down to disentangle her foot from the stirrup while holding on for dear life on a madly running horse, the very first time she's on one.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Loved it!

    1980s, historical-places-events, China, spies, history-and-culture, suspense***** Two things to remember: this is a work of fiction, and it was first published in 1985. Now then. Mrs Pollifax, a widow who always appears to be an innocent tourist of a certain age, has occasionally done courier work for the CIA, but this is her first time in China. The tour is fascinating, the fellow tourists are interesting, and some people are very different than they seem. A VERY enjoyable read! Voice actor Barbara Rosenblatt always does a wonderful job with all the voices and really acts out the story and not just read it. Her voice brings the characters to life with her inflections entirely suited the situations and characters.

    Thanks for your feedback!
