Excellent story of love and feelings at that time. The BBC movie with Colin
Firth was much like this. Most of the characters thoughts or reasons for
action are given by the author and there is alot of explanation at the end.
I thought the author should tell us more of Mr. Darcy and his coming to terms
with his own faults. The movie added a little in this regard. I will listen to this
one many times.
This is an interesting story with a definite ending. Of course there are always a couple of parts that you should not dwell on for believability. There is a lot of action and good flow. Surely, you have heard of the Knights Templar and their protection of some secrets. This story is one possible line of those secrets coming to light. The story takes place in current times and flashbacks to the past. The narrator is very good.
Murder mystery. Main character a lady with a special talent sent on a secret
mission to help the King of England. There is alot of background explanation
along the way. Good character development. The story is about the people
of the time and their inter workings. This is not a war story. The killer is not
revealed till near the end. And that is not the end of the story. The reader is
a lady and very good in pronounciation. One of my favorites.
The whole story is from the perspective of the dog, Chet. And he is the story teller. If you have owned or been around dogs this will help you understand them. This is
a detective story with Chet's owner as the detective. Would say the story was for all ages except for a line about Chet's olfactory skills and some four letter words beginning with f. Some parts a little drawn out as Chet limited in communication.
Definitely, a different sort of book.
When each character has a different voice it is probably going to be good and this audio book does. The book is much the same as the movie with the background added. Some of the background related to sex would have pushed the movie beyond the "R" rating. If you liked the movie; get this too!
I wanted a science mystery etc. This is a romantic novel with a smart dog, smart monster, and hitman thrown in for color.
My first and favorite is Children of The Storm.
This one answers a lot of questions about the
This may shed some light on why some countries have a bad opinion of the U.S. To the naysayer I say the whole book cannot be false. This is a good behind the scenes of the politics of the times. I, now 50, do not understand why a country (the U.S.) who believes in freedom would not respect a communist leader elected in free elections.
This is more of one man's experience. The end is a little surprising. All "nice" guys should
listen to this once.
