All the British characters
No the story is very complete
The story had a lot of interesting history but was told in small amounts. Jump to much between time periods
Mom of 3 and a book lover.
I simply love it and enjoy the thrill that arouse in me while listening the audio. I even consider to have it in movie version (if available). This is my first with the author, I love to venture another of his work.
Scott Brick is the only reason I listened to this book until the end. He never fails to enthrall the listener, which was difficult in this audiobook. I found that the book had promising elements, but rambled on in a way that was difficult to follow at best. I dislike the character, Cotton Malone. Maybe its just his idiotic name, but I don't think so.
No, not in this genre. I love suspense books and thrillers.
It was only Scott Brick that involved me at all. I was not pleased with any character in the book although Mr. Brick was able to make each one real.
Disappointment. It really wasn't worth all these hours of my time.
I really tried to like the character "Cotton Malone." I am well aware of his popularity, but it was a no go for me. I even went so far as to listen to another book in the series. My overall opinion? I will not waste my time with this author again.
Elizabethan, paternity, and corruption.
The young pickpocket and Ms. Mary. They add a bit of humanity to the book that may have otherwise been missing.
For the most part he did a great job. There were times I found it difficult to separate his portrayals because their voices and mannerisms were quite similar, but for the women he did a pretty nice job.
I don't typically read Steve Barry books, but I purchased it for a road trip I was taking with my husband. I found the action packed narrative to go quite well with my cleaning schedule.
I really liked the early Cotton Malone books, but the series seemed like it was losing steam into just being "ok" and formulaic. I found the story line here to be well paced and engaging. I did find the big historical secret to be a bit of a laugh-er, but if you can suspend your disbelief and stifle some giggles and focus on the spy story and intrigue aspects it's an enjoyable ride.
Scott Brick does his usual solid job. He's not my favorite but he does a good performance, but I do always struggle with his representation of female characters that always sound the same.
yes Reader was great and the story line was fasinating with the history
the emotion of all the characters
I loved it
Yes, for the perfomance, the story line and the well researched background material.
The Tudor history is fascinating.
As usual, SB brings drama to the characters. Another top notch presentation.
Berry seems to have his A game back. This books doesn't run off the rails like his last couple have ( to me at least ) and I enjoyed it immensely. Recommended.
Didn't read the print version
Yes. The Tudors fascinate me from a historical perspective. This story puts a really cool twist to the reign of King Henry the Eighth.
Anybody but the dramatic contortions of Scott Brick. I don't think I can listen to another book narrated by him. His whining got to me this time and added nothing to the story. It detracted a lot. Problem is I like most of the authors he narrates, so I guess I will have to read them. Don't the authors listen to the narration of their books?
No, it was too long. Did love the story though!
Find another narrator!!!
Had to find the Bram Stoker work after listening to this book. Love it when a book makes me want to explore further. Scott Brick used his whiny voice too often. Too bad.
