I am sorry but this book made me proud to be British. For all the failings of the defunct British empire the resolve of these men made be tear up. Brilliant
I had this book sitting in my audible account for 2 years before i finally got around to listening to it. I was put off by how long it was. BUT when i got around to it, i loved it and couldnt stop listening. The narration is outstanding. The story simply enchanting. loved it
Just a warning. If you think this is a entertaining mystery tale, think again.It is god squad at its finest. I finished listening to it, and got pulpit dialogue and a whole bunch of questions.
I brought this based on some pretty good reviews but hr 8 into it and i cannot bring myself to finish it. I adore the narrator but the story and the characters are so dull as too be beyond belief. Three characters, the boy is an idiot, the friend a b#$%h and the main character so annoyingly sensitive to every word uttered to her as to drive the reader nuts. And why be such lemmings? maybe i should battle the last hour but I can't for fear I would truely die of boredom. My first negative review of a book (out of over 100 books).
Thank you Audible for this. Even my pre teen kids listened in quiet fascination as the stories unfolded. A nice gesture on your behalf and nice choice of stories that spoke of the kindness and good will to others, with scant reference to any particular religious festival. On that note, i read a review that bemoaned the fact that Audible had somehow been insensitive to other faiths by offering this at Christmas. This truely makes me sad. I am tired of having to wish others a 'Happy Holiday' for fear of upsetting others, when all i want to say is 'Merry Christmas'. Christmas is a festival that promotes good will and love to everyone no matter of color, faith or preferences. So screw it, Merry Christmas to all and too all a good night...
Long time audible fan, with wide ranging tastes. Have never written a review but this book was wonderful. Maybe it caught me at the right mood but it was enchanting. I simply don't want to listen to anything else for awhile but just mull over this story. Awesome narration too.
