Boring. Try as I might- I just couldn't get invested enough in the book to continue listening after the first few chapters. I would avoid this book!
I had incredibly high hopes for this book. And although it was good, it took me two months to finish it. I just didn't feel that drive to listen to it whenever I had a chance. I had to force myself to turn in on. I'm not quite sure why this is, seeing as it is an interesting book and the narrators do a marvelous job.
I'm a 31 yr old female so not exactly a young adult but a fan of historical fiction. At times I like this book but there were a few times I had to turn it off because it was either so depressing I couldn't take the sadness anymore or the story took a turn where I just couldn't suspend my disbelief enough to enjoy the plot. I really found the whole french revolution story very boring did not intrigue me at all. The only thing that really kept me listening is the main narrator Emily Card. I listen to audiobooks whlie I work some narrators do not keep my attention and I drift away from the story Emily was able to keep me listening.
This book was good by the end but it took far too long to get into it. On the positive side, the narration was absolutely amazing, world class si that it was actually very hard not to listen.
