I loved this book. I listen to a wide variety of audio books but this one rates up there with the best. The readers did a wonderful job of bringing the book to life. This is one you can listen to many times and not get bored.
I am not usually a big fan of historic fiction, but decided to try this one due to the wonderful reviews. I was not disappointed. It was a fabulous well written story. I loved every minute of it. The characters and setting are well detailed and it does not lack in action or plot. I have already recommended it to many friends.
I loved this book. It was the funniest book I have read or listened to in a long long time. It is quite possibley the funniest book I have ever read. The humor is quite dark and if you are easily offended by language or other points of view religiously, then this is NOT the book for you. But if you are open to new experiences and ideas then by all means get this book!
This was a wonderful book with the most unforgetable characters. I know all of these people would be my friends if I met them in real life. The story line is great as well, but the best part of this book is how well developed the characters are. You feel as if you know them.
I was warned that this would be a hard book to listen to due to the way it jumps back and forth in time, but I did not find it difficult at all. I could not put this book down. I actually sat in my car on occasion just to listen to the story. Don't start this book unless you have plenty of time to finish!
Excellent book for family listening. This book not only enchanted my 6 & 8 year olds, but kept my husband and I hooked. The reader did a great job of giving each character a distinct personality. I would definatly recommend this book to anyone.
