Yes. It is a good mix of detail and action. However the book has a lot of unpleasant historical details and some may be too wordy for those looking for action, and too much for younger listeners. For me it was great.
I did not notice any attempts at accents, but the narration has been faultless. Mr Hermann has a very pleasant voice and has used just the right dramatic intensity versus sensitivity. I have not really noticed anything which is just how it should be. I feel like I am reading the story.
Maybe. It is long but is intriguing.
The characters, the side stories, the imagery.
Loved it. Could not fault voices, pace, intonation.
No. It is very wordy and descriptive. I could digest it more in small chunks. I wanted to take my time with this story. I wanted to live alongside the characters for a while.
I would happily listen to another story by the same author.
It had enough twists and turns to keep me interested
Narrator did a good job with the array of accents and otherwise did not outshine the story - which is the point.
This was a comfort book. Nice every day tale of small British towns and the mud found underneath the surface.
