Unfortunately, the reader is so bad at reading, that it is so distracting it's impossible to listen to the story. Yes, it was that bad. Don't bother.
The narrator seemed to have an Australian accent which was a bit odd but not too distracting.
No, this one was so frustrating for me because the characters were so unbelievable.
Made the plot interesting and the characters believable.
I wish I hadn't wasted a credit on this book.
I really liked this book. The British characters were all interesting and quite well done by the narrator and the author. I am interested in the Middle Ages and it was very interestingto me.However: Why, of why, must they make all Americans obnoxious and rude and demanding in so many British novels? One can only conclude that this is how they perceive us. And while this is true for some Americans, it is just not true for all of us. Couldn't we occasionally see a polite American? I guess that would be boring.
Excellent job with all the voices and accents. She overdid the horrible American voices, but she did a good job of making all the Amercians totally obnoxious, so if that is what she was trying to do, she did it well.
No, but it is way too long for that anyway.
I am definitely going to listen to the rest of this series.
No. OK light story, but probably not for a second listen. Still, passed the time for me.
No, but that's ok.
Haven't listened to any others.
They describe eating and drinking way too much for my taste.
I. Couldn't get past the awful narration, done by an American trying to do a British accent, and failing, and I just couldn't listen to it, and will return for my credit. What a shame!
I found this book easy listening and engaging, with interesting characters and wonderful scenery descriptions.
Seemed to go over the same suspects and same facts over and over.
The dog, Cybil.
Not really sure.
I am one of the people who didn't like this book.
Just didn't like it.
It was OK.
Just didn't enjoy it.
The narrator was ill chosen. She mispronounced words, which is such a shame when
one is reading such great, intelligent writer's words. Rebecca Solnit is an exceptional
writer, and this narrator simply was not up to the task of bringing her words to audio.
Such a shame, because it is an excellent book. I bought a copy and read it.
Good story, but the Americans portrayed are such jerks, and such cliched stereotypes, it is laughable. Better to leave them out.
