I love Charlotte Bronte, her sisters and everything about this particular book. First of all, the narration is sublime. I can't wait to have Mandy Weston hired over and over again, to read book after book, especially of this time period. She is up there with Josephine Bailey who is one of my very favorite narrators. Villette is a masterpiece. It is too bad that Jane Eyre so overshadowed Charlottes other books. I loved Villette. I love the protaganist of Lucy Snowe. I lived in this book, I could barely function in this century while I was engrossed in this audio!!! More people, who love this genre need to hear this book, its just wonderful.
I enjoyed the characters and the storyline as well as the descriptive writing.
Annabelle because she has a lot of "pluck!
Ann Flosnik does all the characters well. She is a true professional and I adore her narrations.
NO FILM! I like my imagination better.
This novel is short and sweet, great for a Sunday afternoon. I was quilting while listening to the book. It made for a wonderfully sweet, content day.
YES! Susan Duerden does a terrific narration. I have not heard of her before, but I will be looking for other books with her narration. She does a great job with all the characters and has wonderful control of her voice.
It was just plain fun! It was quirky and kooky and I loved it. Very inventive with lots of characters and a great female protagonist!
I liked when she was in the dance bar and met up with her co-worker who is a vampire. Its a funny scene and its very "tongue in cheek" humor.
I hope this author continues writing a series for these characters and situations.
YES!! Ann Flosnik is a wonderful narrator!!! She is a pro at doing males, females, dragons, different accents and her voice is so beautiful!
The characters! I love the way Robin Hobb creates her villians! I also like that each character has inner conflicts that seem real and natural within fantastical settings. I love her descriptive abilities and her attention to detail.
Her beautiful voice! Her inflections, her mastery of story telling! She's one of the best up there with Josephine Bailey and Simon Prebble.
NO FILM!!! My head does better imaginings than any movie would do this story justice.
I am so happy to have audible.com. I have had around 3 (maybe 4 ) platinum memberships. Audible has the very best narrators and the easiest and fastest site to downloading books. I would forgo restaurants, new clothes and the like just to have my audible.com platinum membership.
I loved this trilogy especially this final book of the series. I love Anne Flosnik's narration. Her voice is superb. She does each character wonderfully. I was attached to all the characters whether they be "good" or "bad" as the author has a way of showing us both sides of each character.
Perhaps Eragon series. Or Robin Hobb's other Farseer's series.
So much! The accents of each character, the inflections in her voice. She is a true story teller. If I read the book I don't think I would have enjoyed it as much as listening to it.
YES!!! I couldn't cook dinner, take care of business, talk to other people lest anything take me away from the story!
Loved this series so much. Highly recommended to those who like fantasy novels with excellent charactor developement.
The book is exceptionally read by the narrator. The books content is fun and exciting and kept my interest all throughout the story. I absolutely am enchanted by this book and plan on reading the entire series.
I love Saphira the dragon! But I also love Eragon and the relationship they have started in Book 1.
No. But I will!
It kept me from making dinner more than once as I was engrossed in the story!
Highly recommended for all ages from teens to the elderly!
I really liked this book to my suprise! I have a tendency toward books 100 years old or older, so hearing a modern novel was fun. I just finished Maurice, and gay romance stories have certainly got hotter! I loved Maurice as it is so romantic, but this book is romantic and hot all at the same time. Add paranormal werepanthers and you have a good story. I hope she makes a sequel! I also wished lesbian novels were more fun, I am a gay women and we need stories like this one too!!!
I never read a book by Wilkie Collins, and I truely enjoyed this one. My favorite narrators both! What a treat. Simon Prebble and Josephine Bailey. I truely hope they read a book together again. Someone please hire both of these readers over and over! The book itself had a great story. It is still an intriguing story after all this time. Loved it!
This book was alot of fun. I loved the characters. Both narrators did a great job, but I especially liked Jenny Agutter. Her voice is beautiful and she did the characters very nicely. The story is lovely.
I loved this book. The nuances and character developement as well as the authors insight into human nature. Josephine Bailey reads the novel with perfection. I think she is one of the absolutely BEST narrators out there!
This novel is long, 24 hours of listening pleasure. It was so very interesting, considering it is a historical piece. I love learned about the Napolean era and the effects it had on England. Charlotte weaves in the characters within this terrible time in history. The narrator is excellent. I was lost in time once again. I am amazed that Charlotte wrote and completed this book during a span of which her 3 remaining siblings died. Her brother, Ann Bronte, and Emily Bronte. She is definitely a novelist I would have liked to meet!
