I had never heard of this book, but purchased it based on the good reviews it got. It didn't disappoint! It had an engaging storyline, and I found it to be very unpredictable. You'll love the characters.
odd is good
some, its a soft calm mystery. i listened while i was sewing. just a good well written story.
no, they were excellent
I have trouble getting to sleep at night and this audiobook put me to sleep every night within 5 minutes.
Joesephine's performance had a very clipped unemotional voice that made it hard to be involved with the characters. Simon's performance was better but still not very inclusive.
Nothing is ever going to top this one. Real characters, not just stick figures. I felt real dread of the sort that only great writing, not sensationalism, can produce. Even where I sort of saw what was coming, it had twists I did not expect - the most satisfyingly baroque plot ever.
Much better than the more highly regarded Moonstone, which was cute but not nearly as deep or satisfying.
I'm picky about readers but this was masterful. Agree with the few quibbles about Fosco's accent but minor.
Great story with unexpected plot twists and turns. I was captivated from beginning to end. The voices were perfect to tell the amazing tale.
I didn't known what to expect give. The age of the work and the length of the narration - I stumbled upon it because I like other work by this narrator. I was very pleasantly surprised! Despite the length, the tale is riveting and engaging. The narration is all I had hoped and more.
A great mystery with several twists and turns. I also love the voices. Too often audio books just use one voice for males and females. This book uses a man and a woman, thus making it much more enjoyable. I will definitely read more of his works!;
