This book is great! An old story told in the clever perspective of Thomas Cromwell. As great as the book is it doesn't compare with the narrator. Simon Slater is a genius. With his voices and inflections he pulls us into 16th century England as if we were living there amidst all the drama and angst.
Really loved the narration. Craig Wasson brought the characters to life. It has been awhile since I have read King. I forgot what an edge of your seat storyteller he is.
I loved Mimi, but obviously Jake/George and Sadie were amazing. I also liked the guy and his wife who owned the pawn shop in Derry.
Too long for that.
Oh, I can not wait for books 2 and 3. Ken Follett weaves a great story into historical context once again with stunning results. Of course, John Lee is fabulous at giving just the right amount of inflection to distinguish characters without overacting.
