This is the second one I've listened to, by this lovely woman. Totally engaging! Vibrant descriptions of 1960's London - so good I thought I'd lived it myself. A bit predictable in places, but the main character is so lovable, I easily over looked it. Can't wait to start in on the next one.
This, the second part, is just as good as the first. Another book I listened to straight through and have now added the 3rd to my Wish List.
I can't quite work out if I really liked this one or not. I ended up wanting to skip over the bits narrated by the female character - the man was much more interesting! Probably better if you know the art works referred to, or the locations visited.
Both narrators did an excellent job though!
Amazing. I love this book! I love this narrator as well. Perfect combination. Am sure to listen to it again once I've made my way through the rest of Clavell's books.
Our heroine, but who can resist? A total swash-buckler!
A bit more sex in this one, than the last episodes, but I loved it so much I didn't want it to end. One of those books you can't put down. Had me searching for period dress patterns, just to see what they were running around in!
As all the others he's released. Insightful and funny.
I'm a huge fan already and can't wait for the rest of these great books to be recorded! I'm refraining from reading the next one in the series, so I can listen to it when it's released! No previous knowledge required.
..for me to get into this one - the descriptions of 'modern day' feel so 1950's and a bit shallow! I feel inclined to read more about the Black Death now - the action in that period is great fun. Couldn't wait to get in the car and find out what happened next.
