Diane Setterfield's writing is phenomenal and the readers did the prose justice. I might just buy the book to highlight some of the most moving passages about books and reading I've ever seen (or heard). I lost myself in the story and I could not stop listening.
This book was one I had in my ipod for over a month and wasn't too excited to start it. However, once I started I was hooked. I will definately look for more books by this author.
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.
