The reading was so poor I could not finish- Big disappointment.
I will make a point to never purchase another book with this narrator
lispy, robotic, hard to understand, affected
disappointment for sure - was looking forward to a good snuggle down and listen but could not complete due to irritating voice
I had a hard time listening to this- it really is a long story of boasting about how much misbehavior he got away with...I couldn't really buy in and I did not get much enjoyment from it---Did not finish.
If you are looking for historical account, keep looking, but if you are ready to hear a dramatic story based on some historical facts, then this is an easy listen and an imaginative speculation on "what might have been." The reading was excellent. The story held my interest. Good listen for a long, rainy weekend of distraction-tolerant puttering.
Claire Danes narration is flawless and totally believable. The story sort of grabs you and leads you down a path but the ending---no...that can not be the end...I went back and looked for another section---nothing...I back up the player to see if I missed something--nope...the end is just the end- no resolution, no nothing- just a good-bye-that's-all. Somebody should really finish the story.
Sister Queens was a well done narrative history that brought together timelines and life drama in an easy to follow chronological story. Recommend for anyone interested in that period.
Rough story, graphic and dark. I found it too dark and disturbing to be enjoyable. The Reading was good and the characterization was gripping but the story did no leave me with any feel-good factor at all.
Great characterization of a very good story. Narration was superb. the cadence of the story was flawless.
