This audiobook was great. The narration was perfect and added so much to the tone of the tale. The story was haunting -- it was hard to stop listening yet I didn't want it to end. Highly recommended.
What a wonderful tale that unfolded from the two excellent and distinctive narrators. It was storytelling at its very best.
The carefully descriptive language allows the reader to be immersed in the imagery of scene and psyche. Although the theme of the loss of a twin is not strong enough to hold up the plot, the characters and settings are. I enjoyed listening to this up to the very end.
The reader was fabulous and the story was intriguing. I was trying to find places to drive just to finish it. However, about half way through the novel and particularly towards the end, I got tired of the main character and a secondary character whining. Though still one of my more favorite audible books, I can only give it four stars.
I loved this book. The plotting was cleverly handled. The narrator was easy to listen to and managed to convey the different characters so well that you were able to recognize who they were quite easily. It is a long book and I thought it might drag a bit from time to time but it never did. I finished it last night and will miss the characters, it was that good.
This was one of the worst books I have ever listened to. many times I would find myself not paying attention for spans of up to 20 mins. I was shocked to see it had so many good reviews, I usually agree with the majority, but this was too slow and not very interesting.
The Thirteenth Tale is a story that really benefits from being read aloud. The two narrators help bring bring the two primary female characters to life. At times the subplots can seem to wonder, but trust the author to bring everything to a satisfying and cogent conclusion.
