This book was very solid. I enjoy historical fiction and Nancy Bilyeau clearly knows her stuff. She spends a lot of time developing the characters, which i particularly enjoy. The story is good and the interweaving of historical characters with fictitious ones is seamless. It is a nice long book, which may sound silly; however for me if the book is good, this is only an added bonus! It can make a long day of housework or boring paperwork tolerable. I look forward another book by Nancy Bilyeau.
I thought the character development was excellent. The topic was complex and the author did not shy away from it.
Well, she has a fabulous voice and does a great job with voices. I really liked Lou's (the protagonist's) voice.
This is one of the best audiobooks I've heard so far. Will Patton is a fantastic narrator and has great voices (Clete is a particularl favorite). The story is complex and the characters are well developed. If you like crime novels and thrillers this is definitely worth a credit.
I've listened to the first three Harry Dresden books and I *so badly* wanted to get into them. Many friends have recommended them and are totally hooked by Harry....alas I found myself tuning out long periods of it because I was just...well, bored. There is so much crisis in these books that there ends up being no suspense. The story is not well developed and I personally don't think it is worth the cost or the credit. Disappointing.
We downloaded this book for a 6 hour trip. Mom, dad, an 11 and a 7 year old were totally absorbed for the entire trip. Neil narrates this book himself and he does not disappoint. The characters are interesting, the story is layered with complexity and there is plenty of suspense. Totally worth the purchase. We'll listen again this summer on another long journey.
The story is complex and interesting, the characters are well developed and the narration is top notch. I've listened to this book several times over the last year and I don't tire of it.
