I liked the sense of history. Also learning about a different times and places was interesting
It is non-fiction. I wondered if it would have been more enjoyable as a novel. The story follows the objects rather than the people and sometimes I wanted to know more about the people.
I love this book. I loved it as a child. Wild and yet it all makes a strange kind of sense. A sensible girl in a crazy world.
I love Alice.
Anything might happen and probably does.
Love Juliet Stevenson and she makes this book come alive. It is an amazing book but pretty heavy going.
It's good stuff to think about. Virginia Wolf is an amazing writer.
I love everything by Juliet Stevenson.
I don't think you could make this into a movie (though someone did). It's about the thoughts inside people's heads.
This is a good fun listen. Atmosphereic. Gritty
Many enjoyable moments, except enjoyable is not quite the right word. It's a serious murder mystery with the right touch of cyicism. Great ending - satisfying.
I could listen to Gerard Doyle all day long.
I love Gerard Doyle. He's the perfect narrator for this book.
A great listen!
Full of saddness and beauty. Lots of Bravery in the face of difficulty and a clash of cultures as well.
Always love Juliet Stevenson. She gets it right. She's also spot on with the accents.
If you like Jane Austen you'll like this too.
It's a pretty confused story with no plot. It's hard to follow if you don't have all the background. I'm sure it's very worthwhile but it's hard work.
The narrator does a great job of bringing the characters to life.
