Really not believable.
She certainly CAN NOT do other people's voices. She screeches. Where did they find this person?????? Hope she did not quit her day time job.
It was so absurd, it was funny.
Yes, most definitely! Ellis Peters' lyrical prose just begs to be read aloud and Stephen Thorne is just the person to do it full justice.
Yes, You don't know the book how the book will end until the last few sentences when Ellis Peters creates her masterful prose.
He just epitomizes Cadfael and the medieval times in which he lived.
Ellis Peters is one of those rare authors whose work is as good being read aloud as it is reading it. She has a way of expressing deep emotion or action in a few sentences that are extremely effective and as a result, very powerful.
I really did not like Abra at all. She goes around trying to "fix" or take care of everyone around her whether they want to be fixed or not....and her Mother a Nobel Peace Prize winner??? Let's get real here. It was hard to relate to Abra.
Almost seems like someone else wrote the book.
Anger and boredom. Abra was tedious and a know it all.
Dan, this wasn't up to the standards that we as your reading public expect. There was no suspense, no thrilling action, and little interest generated in the topic. And Paul Michael, as a reader, NO, NO, NO. There's no "color" in his voice.... a true monotone. I was really disappointed.
I've just finished Labyrinth and was engrossed through the whole book. Yes, the book IS long, but I had trouble putting it down. I'm fascinated by this period of history and it was very interesting to hear the point of view of the local inhabitants and Cathars. I also thoroughly enjoyed the way Kate Mosse intertwined the two stories and look forward to reading her future books. The narrator also did an excellent job.
Great story if you can get through the monotone of the narrator----gave up on listening to it and got the book from the library. Please no more good stories by this guy!!!!
Good book, excellent action.....however, this is one book that should not have been abridged...it makes the action a little hard to follow. I've requested the book from the library.
The premise sounded quite interesting, however, in less than 10 minutes into the read, I found the book and the narrator quite tedious. Boring, no real suspense...and the narrator, equally boring.
This has to be one of the most depressing books I've ever read. Wasted time and wasted lives....just sad and depressing.
