Love the book. The story is full of twists and unfolds dramatically, there is no gaps, I had all the answers. Read a lot of negative critigue about the narrator, but I had no problems with a deep narrator's voice here, this is a matter of preference.
Don't be afraid by the title or a publisher review. The story is so alive and breathaking not to mention it is based on real facts. I felt I was watching a movie rather than listening to a narration, it was so vivid. Just can't stop. Barbara Rosenblat's narration this time was absolutely amazing! One of my favorite listens of all times!!!
If you are a Jane Austin fan then this is your book! I hope Daisy Goodwin will write other books in the same genre and will keep us readers busy for a long-long time!
For me this is a type of book that always sits in your mind. Incredible story, I fell in love with the main characters in the book 1 and it was interesting to follow their story in the sequel. Can't stop. The narration is excellent! Highly recommend.
The plot and characters are so weak and boring. Overall, this book has such a negative aura - suicides, eartquakes, killers, car and chopper's crashes, wicked people, lost love ones etc etc, every disaster you can imagine detailed here in this book. I was looking for an entertainment, a good old suspense, but the story gets from bad to worse and let me down completely. Stopped in the middle with a feeling that life sucks and then we die... Brrrrrr.... I wish I spent my money for something more interesting or educating.
The book is great and entertaining. But I'd rather read it than listen to the narrator's disgusting saliva gulping sounds... How is it possible?
