I initially downloaded this because I did a search of other books that are read by Edoardo Ballerini and this one had such great reviews. I had no idea what I was in for!
While I am a history buff, it wasn't so much the history that drew me in. It was the detail, the characters, the emotion! What a sweeping story of friendship, treachery, goodness, and evil. The characters are so vividly portrayed and so aptly interpreted by Ballerini! They brought out such different emotions - laughter, sadness, fear, and a huge amount of frustration with the main character - which half the town was feeling!
Long and twisty, riding this one 'til the end is well worth it!
I'm hooked! Just downloaded the second in the series.
I was looking for something light and quick to listen to and this was entertaining, to say the least. While the base story was actually pretty good, I found the romance part to be laugh out loud funny and the narration to be in an odd panicky monotone. Entertaining? Yes - but for all of the wrong reasons.
I was pleasantly surprised by this follow up to Sings the Nightbird. Twistier, darker, and even funnier than the first in this series - I couldn't put it down.
