This was beautifully written and beautifully read--a wonderful, juicy, gothic-style story I just couldn't put down. The characters were engrossing, and the twists totally unexpected. One of my favorite reads in a long time.
This was a great listen. I found the story fascinating and very well written! She says so much with great economy of words and kept my interest captivated from the very first line.
Aditionally, the narrators did an excellent job at interpreting and conveying the mood and feeling at each turn. An A++
I am blown away by this novel. It is not only spellbinding but characters are incredibly well developed. There is the mesmerizing main story and then several sub stories within which are all complete. I also immediately looked for other works by the author and discovered it is her first. I will be impatiently be awaiting the next.
I really enjoyed this book. In fact, when I was done I went back to check for more from this author! Great story and narration!
What a remarkable listen. The Thirteenth Tale is well written and so hard to stop listening to. Complex and entrancing, the story stayed in the forefront of my mind at all times. I wouldn't stop if it wasn't for my needy family and work...... I couldn't tell what year or even decade is Margaret Lea writing the biography of Vida Winter. Not sure if I really need to know, as I truly enjoyed the timelessness of the story.
I loved the narration of this book, and the tale was absorbing! I listen to books while I'm walking, and this one made me want to walk.
