I, like a few other listeners, have found the narrator of this story so annoying that it has been hard to get through this otherwise good book. The details and historical accounts about Marie Antoinette are very interesting, and of course, cleared up a lot of confusion that I had when watching the historically inaccurate movie.
I really enjoy the books in this series. Kate Reading is a wonderfully talented narrator who brings the stories to life with her voices. I highly recommend these books if you are a fan of historical fiction.
wonderful narration and an exciting plot. The Narrator does the voice of Henry II so well you can't help be smile.
Given the author and the plot, this book sounded like a winner. Character development took too long and much of it was inconsequential. The dialog was often awkward. There was gratuitous swearing by one character in what seemed like an overly obvious attempt at defining a personality, but instead was just annoying. The basic premise is creative and certainly had more potential.
