I agree with the previous reviewer, this is a wonderful piece of work for someone interested in the history of India. The DVD is also exceptionally well done. It is colorful and very interesting and engaging, covering spiritual and political aspects. India is a fascinating country and this is a great overview. It is educational without being boring -- Michael Wood does such a good job. I've listened to it several times and enjoyed it each time.
All in all, an listening excellent choice for non-fiction.
This absolutely could not have been written by the same author
who wrote the Dr Siri Paiboun books. They appear to be written
by a child.
Maybe Colin Cotterill let one of his grandchildren write these Jimm books.
Stupid, uninteresting, boring, insulting, really.
Not a single one. I will return it for my credit.
The first two books were good, but this was was a replica, with a few new characters thrown in. But, this time there was a political message which I didn't like.
The plot was almost exactly the same formula as the first two books, so this author
needs to create some new situations and get some new ideas for the plot.
Performance was just fine.
This book has a touch of the sort of story Phil Rickman writes in his Merrily Watkins mysteries, which I love. Great characters and complex plot.
Never got interested in the story of the characters. I love Ellis Peter's Cadfael books, but this one was surprisingly uninteresting.
Very good story, kept me very engaged, a little mom-teenager relationship, a little magical older woman stuff, some very dark characters, mysterious and just the right amount of suspense.
Interesting story from a century before woven through. The main character, who is a Church of England priest, is very contemporary and thoughtful and someone who I could relate too. I like her character.
I really liked the characters, the town, and the mystery. Good listen!
This is another interesting, well told historical novel by the excellent author, Philippa Gregory. Good story, wonderful narration.
The main character shows a independence and character.
A very cute, light and entertaining listen.
All these "royal spyness" books are similar.
I have no idea because I haven't read any in print.
Moved me? No. These are not really very "moving" books, they're light entertainment. Sort of like watching a sitcom.
This is a useless question because readers of Audible reviews are going to listen to it or not listen to it.
Can't think of one.
This was fairly boring despite a good narrator. It had potential, but just didn't quite deliver on plot.
The first Max Tudor book, A Wicked Autumn, was really captivating, interesting and had
interesting characters who were complex and developed. Max himself was somewhat introspective and also interesting. This book, the second, was superficial, has stereotypical characters who were not appealing and about whom this reader didn't care.
It is hard to believe this second book was written by the same author, they are that different in quality.
No, but it may make me hesitate to buy another by this author.
It was boring, and I lost interest.
Read the first one, Wicked Autumn, and give this one a pass.
This book started off well but got worse. It was tedious.
No. I didn't find it interesting and I didn't want to keep listening to it.
George Guidall is excellent, as always, but even he couldn't make this interesting.
I am surprised by all the good reviews. Just goes to show you, you can't judge a book by its reviews.
