The Way Through The Woods Audio-book. Read by Kevin Whately.

Hello everyone and welcome to a new post.

The video below is as the title of my post states, the audio-book of Colin Dexter’s novel The Way Through the Woods. It is read by Kevin Whately.

The audio-book is three hours long.

Although it states ‘part one’ in the title that is incorrect. This is the whole thing. I initially thought due to size and length that I would have to make the video into three parts. Thankfully I didn’t. I forgot to change the title card.

After having looked after my mum for some 11 years she is now unfortunately in a nursing home. I'm afraid her dementia worsened as did her physical capabilities. UPDATE: My mum died from Covid-19 on the 6th May 2020. So, for the first time in 21 years I find myself no longer caring for anyone. Apart from my mum I was also a single parent to two children and also looked after my dad who had Alzheimers, (he died in 2005). So, I have decided to return to University to try and get another degree this time in English Literature. (My other degree I got some 30 years ago is one in Ecological Science). After a year at college I have passed all grades and now will start Edinburgh University in September 2019. I am now in second year having passed all the requirements in first year.

  1. Wonderful—thank you!! I am a total Lewis fan and will buy your book when it’s available. Will you answer unresolved questions in it? At least unresolved to me…….

    1. HI Barb. I am doing my best to take a scalpel to each episode in the hope of finding and supplying as much information as I can.

  2. Christopher–you are a Blessing and a treasure for all of us devoted to Colin Dexter and his irreplaceable work. Instead of grieving his loss I have followed your excellent example of rewatching and enjoying what we have in the now–Thank You.

    1. Thank you Elaine for your kind words. Yes, keep watching, keep reading and keep Colin’s legacy burning bright.

  3. Thank you so very much for making this available! I love listening to the Morse novels on Audio Books or radio dramatizations, but this one is very special, being read by Kevin Whately. It’s almost as if Robbie Lewis were simply recounting his adventures with Morse. Lovely experience.
