I have read all of Ms Gregories books about the Tudor family and I was disappointed in this one. I had wondered for years about Mary Queen of Scots but I had trouble being very interested in this. It was easy to start and stop not coming back for weeks at a time. I felt that there was very little history involved and didn't learn anything about Mary. Will think before getting another book like this.
I have read this book at least three times and still greatly enjoyed listening to it. The narrator is excellent. I was concerned that hearing someone read the book would conflict with the way I pictured and heard it in my head. Not so! It was marvelous. I let myself be carried away in the lifes of Jamie and Claire.
I read this authors first book and really enjoyed it. When I read the excerpt at the back for this title, I knew that I had to read or listen to it. This narrator was excellent. The scottish burr very authentic. Lexi/Cassie was a lovable and very interesting character. I really hope that there is another book about her soon.
I loved this book. While it took me about an hour to become totally hooked, from then on I could hardly stop listening. The narrator was so good I could see each character as he changed voices. Caris and Merthyn are such lovable characters you want to know them better and better. The ending was perfect!
This book totally captured my attention. From the first sentence.."I was born twice" to the final "excited for what was to come" I was drawn into the world of the Stephanadese(?). Callie was so likable, you really cared. Even the somewhat taboo subject of incest was handled in a sensitive manner by making it understandable and the characters likable. The narrator was wonderful. The way he changed his voice for different characters and even had accents kept me waiting for the next chapter. I would recommend this book for anyone with a good attention span.
