I couldn't wait to read Ms. Trigiani's latest book. I have read or listened to all of her books, and I prefer her voice to Ms. Campbell's. I found her voice monotonous and her Italian accents weak. I felt I was listening to a teenager.
The story was just ok. It seemed like I had to listen for a long time for very little to happen. I hope the next two are more action packed!
PLEASE give this book a chance! It takes a while to get through the background information, but it is worth it in the end. Stay with it and you will be rewarded. The second book jumps right into the action, and the author delves into Lisbeth's past. I couldn't put it down. The third book is coming out in Europe this October so it will be out here soon. Hopefully they'll keep the same narrator, as he was wonderful. Highly recommended if you can get through the first couple of hours.
This book is a must listen - the narrator is superb, and if you like the Count of Monte Cristo, you'll love this. I found myself listening in the car, on walks and even at home during any spare time I had. Enjoy!
I didn't want this book to end. Just like Pillars of the Earth, this will become one of my favorite books. The narrator, John Lee, makes the story and characters come alive. He is the perfect actor for this book. I too, wish he would narrate another thousand page book, but it would still be too short. The characters in the book are very well developed and I would recommend this book to anyone, especially "Pillars" lovers. Don't miss this!
