Jane Austin wrote romance. This novel is not a romance. There is sex and political intrique but no romance. The sound effects are clunky and distracting. I read the novel before listening to this reading. I thought maybe I had not appreciated the novel by not reading it closely but the reading leaves no doubt. The characters are not interesting enough to sustain the reader's interest. Fancy language does equal a good plot.
I have worked in information Technology for 25 years and have run my own small business for 23 years. I love books!
I spent a lot of time trying to bond with this book - but it was just horrible. The narrator puts the emphasis in all the wrong places and it just drove me crazy.
A true plot, characters whom one would care about, and less contrived writing.
No, because I am not sure to which genre this book actually belongs. It is supposed to be a fantasy, yet it seems the author goes to great lengths to make it read as if it were not fantastic.
No, not really. It just seemed to be one of the most self conscious, tatted up, over embellished books I have ever read.
Don't bother unless you are young and inexperienced and know little of history.
I tought this was a rather bizarre book. Maybe I am terribly dense, but through most of the book I was left wondering what was the point, and where is the story headed. I found it difficult to relate to the characters and the story line. The narration was fine, and the performance background was a great idea, but the book did not help matters.
Having some action, and less talk.
All right. Background sounds were annoying. They were OK, but they had pretty much just boring trite conversations. Nobody stood out as a character, and you didn't wonder what happened next. You wondered if anything was going to be interesting.
Can't even remember who was who.
What good is it to have such a complicated cast, if the story goes no where and is so boring?
almost all gay
count of monte cristo
first fight scene
no. i could only take so much
This book was not for me. Wish someone could have explained a little better before i bought it. But that does not mean its not for you.
Hi, I'm a student at NYU and I'm also huge into MMA. I love books I read a lot and review the stand outs. I tend to read mostly fiction , but I from time to time I read more serious literature as well. Follow me and I'll make sure to give you the goods.
Less man love more fighting
the man love killed it for me .... Brokeback moutain style
Yes it was done very nicely
........... I don't know where to start
I bought this book because I wanted to hear the background sounds everyone else was 'talking' about. They are interesting but not essentile. I didn't realize I added them myself! Also 6 narrators sounded fun and it was, so is the book but if you chose not to purchase it your world will not end!
Love fantasy, love Jane Austin, love Neil Gaiman, so I was sure I would love this book when Neil says
