I have read all the books in this series and this is the only one to disappoint me.
I have never been crazy about Toren's narration but I let that go to enjoy the story.
I could not get past it this time and I am sorry to say I should have read it...not listened to it.
Author keeps this series alive...can't wait for the next one.
Really terrific characters, history and story!!!
The overall message was an important one and much appreciated by this listener.
I also bought the book to read it...and I preferred that version. I found the audible version protracted, the music distracting and I think the readers chosen were not the best. I am certain I would have preferred one great reader like Barbara Caruso for the whole book. Still it was an important book and it should stay on the best sellar lists for a long time.
Carole byd who reads this one is fabulous!!! The story itself is over long but I loved it...mostly because Boyd makes each character an individual voice and holds my attention as if it were a play at the West end in London.
I will not read this one again because it was to long, too descriptive and too detailed for my taste. Story could have been 4 hours shorter by my standard. BUT, I do love British novels so I am glad I read it once.
not the best british narrator I have heard. Story grows on one as the 2nd part begins. gives a reliable portrait of british village problems to this day
