I liked this book. I didn't love it, but it was a good read/listen...entertaining, perhaps a bit predictable, but the characters were likable and I enjoyed it.
I had been listening to a few classics and was looking for some easier listening, so I got this book. Boy, was that a mistake. I really didn't like this book. I made myself finish it because it was short and because I hate not finishing a book. I didn't like the writing. I didn't care about the characters. I thought the story contrived and unrealistic. I didn't like the narrator; there were times when she was reading a conversation that I had no idea which character was speaking. I thought the music was distracting and creepy. I am obviously in the minority because so many people liked it, but I would not recommend it!
I loved this! For some reason I had never read Jane Eyre. I think I liked it better for listening to it. The reader used a nice voice. I really enjoyed this book~
I enjoyed this book. I like historical fiction type writing...and while this didn't include a ton of history, there were cultural elements that I found educational. I liked the readers accent...I thought it really added to the story.
I felt like this dragged on and on. And repetitive! Oh my. I did learn things and for that reasons I'm glad I listened and finished it. But I didn't love the writing and found the repetitiveness insulting.
