This book is superbly read and fun to listen, but the plot is unbelievable. The last part, which takes place in a London court, is especially entertaining and hard to believe.
Great listen! I looked forward to "drive time" so I could stay stay connected to the twists and turns of this clever story line. Enjoy!
I can't express just how much I loved it. Held my attention the whole time, very creative twists. Clever all the way through. Totally worth it!
This was a great listen - mainly due to the absolutely wonderful narraration. I wish Roger Allam had more titles on Audible.
I also loved the characters. Overall I enjoyed this book and it kept my attention. I found it exciting and suspenseful, especially at first, but towards the end it seemed a little contrived.
I would recommend it as a fun listen, but it is by no means a literary masterpiece. At times I felt the author was a bit arrogant - underestimating the reader's intelligence with repetitive descriptions and melodramatic plot twists.
Narrator was excellent - I liked the plots and twists, though a couple might have been just a little over the top. It kept my interest, it has lots of humor and I will listen to it again later on. For some unknown reason, I kept having the feeling of deja vu. I feel like I've read this before or heard it or saw a movie much like it. I wonder if anyone else felt this? It was a very good listen.
A fine listen. I listen to Audiobooks while on my walks, I walked an extra few miles while listening to 'A Prisoner of Birth' and lost an extra two pounds.
