The author is indeed gifted. A biography is included before the book-nice. Fun, mysterious listening. Keeps you guessing until the end.
Quite an excellent, believable story, but the narrator does not make the listening pleasant. She has an edgy voice. Quite a few love scenes, maybe a few too many.
Excellentlyl written and narrated. This fictional historic work gifts you with becoming a part of each character and understanding of the power and dysfunction of the British monarchy. Prompted me to do more research after reading this book--Jane then NIne Day Queen versus "Bloody" Queen Mary.
Really enjoyed the insight into the Gwen Meadows character and the humorous way it is handled. I found myself smiling more that once. Lauren Willing is one of my favorite authors. Lots of interesting twists and turns within the outrageous story line.
A fun listen, entertaining. Great narrator. Addresses orphan trafficking and has an old west take the perpetrators out solution. Illustrates how far we have come in America in changing old world entitlement issues.
I wasn't able to relate to the characters. The dialogue sounded like a manual.
It put me in a zone. Good, realistic psychological messages and character dialogue. No major tragedy. Well written, just never drew me in to the story.
Yes. Some of her books are quite good. This wasn't bad, just okay. No big laugh, no big cry, not much mystery...I kept guessing the story plot.
The scene where the main character talks to her boyfriend about her abandonment feelings.
Reinstilled the importancy of the past not getting in the way of the future.
Not much to convince me to listen to the sequel.
Gruesome, Captivating! Heart wrenching.
Follet!s trilogy books. Many mentally twisted characters, a few truly "good" characters embedded in a very accurate, detailed description of the historical period.
Spiritual mud house at Indian compound.
In sickness and in health.
Don't listen to this series if you are prone to depression!
I can't believe someone actually thinks it's okay and funny to swear at kids. Even at our worst, we need to model our best. Go in the bathroom and scream into a towel or another bedroom and scream into your pillow. Kids have enough trouble developing good self esteem and self worth. They don't need parents slinging epithets at them. PS The poetry was quite good if you leave out the F word.
This is one of those Oprah books. You feel sad as you hear it (not only affected by the skilled narrator, but also the content), even in the good parts. I didn't like feeling like that so did not finish listening to the book.
If you want to understand verbal manipulative abuse and what results when you enable the accompanying narcissistic behavior, this novel will educate you. The first of the book gave an in depth play-by-play subduing narrative; the rest of the story made up for the needed but depressing self-preservation infomercial.
