I am an Accountant and an MBA Candidate. I like to listen to audio books when I am in traffic, at the gym or doing repetitive work.
I could listen to this audio book again and again. The characters are so compelling. This is a story that lives on in the mind even after the reading is over. Well done!
An amazing rookie effort, with lovingly developed characters, a dramatic storyline and a vibrant New York background long-lost to history. And a little bit of magic....
With its odd premise, I wasn't sure what to expect. By the end, though, it was hard to pause.
I like to discuss books with my wife, and while she does like fantastic stories, if they don't have sufficient character development then they fall flat. I have no hesitation in recommending this one to get, though. And I look forward to talking with her about it when she's done.
So many twists and turns, I was completely engaged the entire time. The story is a beautiful and complex tapestry of 2 deeply rooted traditions, each explored in a brilliant visual and fascinating way. Helene Wicker has an amazing mind, she is an amazing story teller. I will listen to the entire book again very soon.
This book went well beyond my expectations! I loved all the twists & turns leading you on an adventure with a wonderful destination! I usually can guess how a book will end or have an idea of the direction it will lead me. This book delightfully kept me in captured wonder & I couldn't turn it off. A book I will be recommending to my friends & family.
I'm not sure if the story is great or if George Guidall is just an amazing narrator. I'll admit I'm buying books just to hear him. Truthfully the story was engaging and pulled me along. I'm happy I took the change on what I thought was going to be a bit of fantasy fluff.
Great book, the narrator was perfect! For such a unique story, the language and inflection added a deeper layer. More like story - telling than recitation.
I am an entertainer...so I spend a lot of time on the road. I take my audio seriously. I appreciate great writing and outstanding narration.
I have pretty high standards for audio books. I want great narration...lively and interesting characters and a plot that moves along at a solid pace.
You get all of that and much more in this outstanding story.
19 plus hours and I wasn't bored once.
This one is a keeper.
Such an amazing job with the varied accents. I was impressed! Very creative story, I author expertly weaves a novel that spans 1000 years together.
