Can not answer that
Agnes is a individual who had me in gripping sadness. I realize life was much harder with weather and very few of the comforts we have now but the loss of a mother so young and the inability to have little rights of=r say on your future was reportedly heavy.
How could one go on for so may years with little appreciation for one's work and kindness and never feeling safe or secure in knowing you have home and food is thought provoking.
The author gave a balanced review of Agnes's life and left me with many nights thinking of Agnes and her grief. I could not get this character out of my thoughts. How she endured her life sentence and how she offered kindness and life saving tactics while waiting for that last day. There was so much passion in the story as well as care in presenting many actual happenings from here historical investigations.
I enjoyed the first two books in this series. This book was quite different the style of writing changed. He tried to write cliff hangers but 2 seconds later when the next chapter started you find it was just leading... I did not like the violence gruesome and at points unnecessary.
The side lineage of the sausage is too haunting. I will reframe for those who have not read of listened to it. I dreaded all the fighting scenarios. I found them boring and not very engaging.
The plots are very involved with many characters. Each character comes alive easily with the description the author gives and the details associated with their actions.
Very interesting issues early in the 1700's and limitations that are removed from modern day habits.
No instant e-mails or alerts we take for granted . In the novel crimes and detections are solved after many interviews and painstaking travel. No 911 calls or googling people's name to find out about background. Yet the main character uses his perception and life of reflection and incredible listening skills to find out what people are really saying/doing.
Listen close for clues. There is a little jumping towards of resolutions.
A definite surprise. I liked this book better than the first "Speaks the Nightbird. Trust the positive reviews. I'm going to get the next in this series. Stood in the kitchen not moving for the last two hours of the book... a little surprise towards the end. Great writing.
If you know of children with Aspergers and adults this is a must listen to. I learned more how my family member thinks and feels or not feels. It provokes humor but that is really just the way you think because you do not have Aspergers. It is a glimpse into their world. One where we forget the way they feel is different yet very sensitive and real.
It was a light and fun listen to. I have been listening to audio's driving and walking the dogs and I really did not want this one to end. The ending was done properly in my mind. I have recently listened to Holocaust audios and this was a wonderful change. My heart felt lifted and lighter . Dive in you will be glad for the purchase.
Yes I would definitely listen again. This is the second Best Audio Book I have heard. The story is very well developed and easily captures you with every chapter. The narrator secured my attention in such a manner that if I missed a sentence I would go back to listen again. I felt as if I was present with every situation.
The most mysterious character was the Mayor's wife. Her sense of sorrow and interest in the child would play a significant role in her life.
I would recommend this book. The narration was done by very talented individuals.
The ending was surprising and not expected. So many details of the story kept you hanging on.
Some authors try to capture an audience many adjectives and numerous descriptions that leave little for imagination; this often bores me. This author secured my attention with critical details and a provoking story. If you like to think while you listen and reflect consistently, this is the book for you.
Mila, Her voice was so genuine. It never sounded as if she was reading text but revealing accounts as if they just happened. If was captured by her tone, pauses and her pitch. I have listened to this book twice and I'm about to start the third time.
I was disappointed that the author read his notes from the various interviews. He would try and change his voice but did a awful job of making the listening reading sound like someone else. Very unconvincing and the real message was lost in the translation.
nohis style of writing is not interesting.
I stopped listening before chapter 6. This is a topic that is very dear to my heart. But I would not recommend this author.
