A interesting book that had me listening eagerly to find out the end. Lots of twists and turns.
The main character
No, haven't listened to her. Found her ok. She seemed to miss some of the humor in the book, but she did a nice job with the voices. She was a bit inconsistent.
Dead babies finger
Not totally predictable. The characters were interesting.
I love this series and am always thrilled when one of them is offered as an audible books. I would put these book at the top of the list. Dorothy Dunnett is my favorite author. I love history and this book and all of Dunnetts books are drenched in history and drama. Clever clever books.
Very long..and yet not very gripping. I just couldn't get emotionally invested in the characters even though I really wanted to. Slow and plodding.
If a story is written well I can enjoy emersing myself in the book but this one barely gripped my attention and seemed to ponderous and unexciting though the story was about magic.
The narrator did well. The story was interesting and different but you could see sometimes what was going to happen. Still as a sequel it was gripping. It kept me listening. The ending was as I stated not unexpected and so I probably won't continue with the series. Still up to this point it was and is a very well written story if a bit unbelievable with the heroines almost super human strength and endurance.
This series is a great summer read especially if you are coming off a Hunger Games addiction.
I just could not get into this story and actually gave up on it.
Probably not. Just couldn't find any desire to listen any more.
I think the story just dragged. I am not sure the narrator was at fault.
Not interested enough
Really slow read...
