This is a wonderful mystery in a historical setting beautifully read. The characters and setting are well developed with a level of detail that lets you really get to know them and "see" them, too. Patrick Tull's voice telling the story is perfect-you will quickly be immersed in Brother Cadfael's world.
A terrific book that is also a wonderful audio book. Thoroughly enjoyable.
I can't compare the two.
Marvelously funny AND engaging as a fantasy/mystery...
No, but I will definitely be looking for more-I can't imagine anyone doing this better!
Not immediately...but once the foundation of the story was laid down, I didn't want to "put it down!"
Ok...I'll admit that this was a story in a genre that appeals to me...but I didn't go looking for it...the story came looking for me (it was offered by Audible at a promotional price and caught my attention)....I'm not even finished listening and the story has been SO much fun that I wanted to write a review-my first-so others could also discover this gem!The writer's story is very engaging....I surely would also have enjoyed READING the book...but, as in my title, read by Susan Duerden it is BRILLIANT to listen to (in the particularly English use of that word.) FUN FUN FUN!My only "complaint?" This is Daniel O'Malley's first book in what I hope will be an ongoing series...and I have to wait to see what happens! I'm now following both the author and Myfanwy Thomas on Twitter to "stay in touch!"
