There's so much history in the book that in a second read I would concentrate on the historic detail -- perhaps with supplemental material.
So many it's hard to pick. Overall the relationship between the Prince/King and the shaman Anhotek was always evolving, moving and memorable -- filled with life lessons..
His delivered a good performance. Readers may note certain quirks in his speech but certainly none that detract significantly from his performance.
Anhotek! I was most invested in this character. Perhaps it was his dedication, wisdom, love and perspective that engaged. The ultimate father figure.
A very good read made moreso by the attention to historic detail. You will be entertained and nourished.
Cherry Jones gives Carson McCullers' compelling characters life and depth. Reading it was like a great theatrical perforamnce. Ms Jones' nuanced narration is in itself worth listening to. Add Ms. McCullers' compelling story and you have a winner. My first Audible book and I was hooked!
I'm only several hours into the book which is very well written and engrossing. The narrator, however, sucks (pun intended) the joy out of the book. She has a smoker's voice and I think I can actually hear her taking puffs on a cigarette. She inhales, gasps and swallows. I want to scream -- stop smoking -- you're killing yourself. I must really like the book to put up with this huge distraction.
