I love these books and think Barbara Rosenblat is amazing. If you are attached to the characters in the series, this is one of the best of the bunch.
I am not sure if it was a man reading female dialog, but the main female character seemed very stupid and listening to her really got on my nerves. If you can tune her out, the book would be about 3 and 1/2 stars. If it wasn't for the very dark subject matter and charaters, I would have given this 4 stars. If you like spy stories and don't mind depressing subject matter, I think you will like this book. I don't usually read spy genre, but really enjoyed that aspect of this book.
If you like the series, you will love this book. New listeners/readers might wonder what all the fuss is about!
My favorite story is one that takes you right there as if you are in the room with the characters. This book is wonderful, the narrator is just right.
This book is good if you are interested in widening your literary knowledge, but it is pretty sad. I gave up 2/3rds of the way through, needed a break. I do care how it ends, so I will finish it after I have read/listened to something a bit lighter. The narrator is good.
If the mother in Sense and Sensibility (one of my favorites) got on your nerves, this book will kill you. This book is 3 or 4 times longer than it should be because it is filled with nonesense conversation. I tried!!
I thought this boring. I am disappointed as it was featured on Audible's main page as recommended by a famous author. It might be better in written form but I think the author reading it in this case is a mistake.
Definatly worth a credit. I purchased this as a treat to myself while traveling for work and actually laughed out loud.
If you are a fan of historical mysteries, and can accept some, (okay a lot) of improbability in your mysteries for the sake of fun, listen to all of this series. NOTE: Make sure the narrator is Barbra Rosenblatt before you download. ALSO - the unabridged aggravate me - maybe they don't you....
These books are so entertaining, fun and an escape from reality.
I should have read the description better, if I had I would not have downloaded it. In this case the narrator is just as important as the author.
