fun, light, entertaining
My favorite character was Margo...the story was told from her point of view, and I found it interesting reading a book about a wedding that wasn't from the bride's point of view.
She's a great reader...she's not monotone, which some other readers can be, and she does all of the different voices so well. The tone she used for Margo really 'matched' the description of Margo I would've had, had I read the book.
I would love to talk to Helen Oppenhimer and ask her WTF? Haha!
I loved each of the story lines of this book, and how justice was served at the end. As with his other books (Fall of Giants and Winter of the World), he does a great job of describing each story line, and then beautifully brings them all together. I'm not really one for medieval stories, but this is really a story of love, perseverance, and the good and bad sides of the church.
There's too many, but if I had to pick the most significant (not necessarily my favorite because it was gruesome), it would be the demise of William Hamley. Second would be the love story between Jack and Aliana. I loved how she traveled through Europe to find him...very romantic!
No, it took me several weeks to listen to this book. I listened mostly during my commute, and I'll say, there were times when I felt like I could've kept driving!
I loved the story line, and I have to say, it really came to life under the narration of John Lee.
