This is the first time I wished I would have gotten the bridged version. I was really torn about writting a review for this book, some of it was pure art, the authors writting is vividly poetic, and then there are times when it is overdone. My biggest disapointment was the end..it went on and on..and on.
I didn't finish the book, so additional comments are moot. The required 15 words are too many.
I had a hard time getting into this book. It is certainly unusual. The characters are not the norm or normal. I found it kind of depressing at times.
I still don't really know who was who in this story but it is well written and nice to listen to. As in any mystery, some things that were revealed were not such mysteries at all but others, like I said, still don't know how that all worked. Very enjoyable though and I may just listen again to try to figure out what I obviously missed.
I could only get past the first 3 chapters. Chapter one - contemplate letter found and the hand writing on it. Chapter 2 read letter and contemplate it. Chapter 3 loved books as a child. The writer knows how to turn flowery, eloquent verses but the problem is they are empty in content. Writer more interested in turning a phrase then conveying any real information or telling a story. God AWEFUL book.
I dont know how this got such a high rating, it was a slow paced overly descript tale that left me wondering if I missed something. Mono toned english narrative that will either put you to sleep (slow story) or irratate you (wasted money on this). If I had it to do over again, I wouldnt.
I purchased this book on a whim. I am glad I did! A wonderful story in every sense of the word. The narrator was wonderful and the story kept me in suspense until the end. An excellent listen!!
This book is hard to follow. None of the story lines get interesting enough to draw you in. I didn't make it to the end but I'm betting I didn't miss much.
Yes. It was the only book I have ever I listened to that I hit the replay on. I did not want it to end. I loved the story but the performance took it even higher.
I have never experienced an audible book with this high level of performance by both narrators.
THIS ONE IS... Magical, mystical, wonderful... THIS IS IT!...What a ride... This is a story from an author of greatness.... Painted pictures of mysterious lands... You can't hope for a better deep plot woven story... This is a priceless! Listen!... You will hear that which I have seen... You will never regret the time spent... NEVER!....
