This is a great book. Very well written and gripping. You don't want to put it down! The author really wrote the characters well and you care about them!
Credible story with the tangling between ethics and outcomes well explained.
Great Expectstions. Like dickens really well painted places and people. A time trapped story
None of them actually. I'd want them kept beck in the 20s.
I'm sure it's going to win awards
Loved it! A little slow in the middle, but kept me listening & has such a great story. However, i was wishing it had ended differently. Still loved it tho!
I initially thought the authentic Australian accent was a perfect fit, but it quickly felt like the narrator was dragging down the story. He spoke so quietly at some parts it was difficult to hear. This would have been much more enjoyable not listened to.
This is a beautifully written book with a heartbreaking premise. The phrasing and writing style paint beautiful word pictures. The narration, however, is often undecipherable! I keep turning up the volume - more and more - but to no avail - I cannot understand the low tones and mumbled words of the narrator.
I like to switch back and forth between reading a book and listening to the audio when I'm in the car. This has always been an enjoyable practice that helps me read books faster and adds to the experience of a good novel. That is impossible with the narration on this book. I lose whole sentences or best the end of most sentences due to the undecipherable and very hard to hear narration. What a huge disappointment!
It was the first one I have used Audible for - I usually just use the free computer narration. I could not hear the narrator - he would fade to a whisper at the end of almost every sentence. So frustrating! I feel like I missed half of the story. I am going to try another book, but this first experience was not good.
Wow. I am overcome at the power & poignancy of this book and its exquisite reading. I am sorry Stedman did not have another story to tell.
