I loved this book, have recommended it to everyone I know-in audio format- and will listen to it again and again. I laughed and cried with the characters, fell in love with Guernsey, and felt I had known these people my entire life. Wonderful!
Yes. It was a good story and Stuart Neville is a very good author.
The premise that the Protestant Irish and the IRA collaborated with the Nazis and Nazi sympathizers.
Flat voice with some characters, stilted sentences. Not enough change of voice/accent between the different people in the story.
I probably would have eliminated a couple of characters.
Too many characters and plot lines for listening, although to read the physical book probably wouldn't have been as much of a challenge since once could flip back through the pages for clarification on various points.
It was "okay".
I have read the previous books in this series and enjoyed them (4 stars) so this story was rather a disappointment. I am not sure if it was the plot, the characters, the narrator or a combination of all 3. Just possibly changing the voices would have made this book more enjoyable and easier to follow.
Yes, because I enjoyed the characters and story
She spoke in a monotone, to my way of thinking. There was no emotion, she just was reading the words on the page. She didn't really change the pitch of her voice to indicate a different character was speaking. She was the main distraction to listening to
Yes, because I like the series
I will think twice before I listen to any other books with Ms. Leo the narrator.
I had to really force myself to finish this book. First, the narrator's voice grated on my nerves! As to the actual story line--slow, predictable, and very disappointing. I have also read Khoury's latest 'Templar' book. First one was good, this one was awful. I wanted to bump off the main character. If all our FBI agents are as stupid and inept as Sean Reilly, this country is in big trouble. I will not read another book by this author no listen to another audio book with Ferrone narrating.
