The theme and dialogue is quite repetative, and feels boring. I had waited for this biik with such excitement and anticipaption and was disapointed. I am also tired of all the references to Melucina.
She did not need to keep repeating the same things in different ways over and over. I also think more could have been done with the alliance with Spain, Arthur's death and the arrival of the Infanta.
Bianca Amato is a wonderful narrator and does as much as anyone can with a weak story.
THe White Princess had so much potential and was such a disapointment.
This book is geared more to someone looking for a pure romance novel without regard to history.
Another book by Margaret Atwood, I am hooked!
She was unconvincing, but mostly because of the book's poor material.
I am completely disapointed and bored with this book, cannot make it past first 2 hours.
The author portrays Margaret of York as a cat in heat oogling at every man she sees, from a courrier to the married Antony Woodville, brother of her (future) Sister-in-law, but fearing marriage. It makes her seem both rediculous and wanton at the same time. I am not buying it.
It was a very exciing, compelling story that moved quickly, was different than anything I have read before and highlights the value of a loving family and good friends.
When Whit healed Wisty and realized he had the gift of healing, and they shared Christmas with Pearl Marie's family and remembered how much they still had.
This is the third and final book in a trilogy that takes the classic struggle of good and evil to another level. Brother and sister team Wisteria and Whitford Allgood learn they are gifted in ways they never imagined. Wisty is a Witch and Whit is a Wizzard, and those closest to them are disapearing. They learn abruptly when The One Who is The One and his followers appear in their home one night (in the first book) to arrest them. They escape but their parents do not. Whit learns that his girlfriend, Celia, who had gone missing several months before, was taken to get to him and Wisty, and she was tortured and killed and now exists in the Shadow Lands. She makes occasional appearances to save the siblings from life and death situations because a prophecy identifies them as the only hope for defeating a The One, who is a Hitler-like dictator. The One is obsessed with capturing the Allgood children alive because he wants to posess their gifts. There are death squads throughout the land seeking to destroy creativity. Children seem to be the ones mainly targeted. Wisty and Whit join the resistance, a group of children who try to fight the suprnatural forces of evil. I won't tell you how good overcomes evil, because that is too much of a spoiler, but good does triumph. It is an amazing story and well told. Character development is excellent and the author mixes humor into the horror to keep it compelling. The narrators were well chosen to tell the story. Their voices are filled with passion, emotion and are very easy to listen to. I highly recommend this entire series.
The narrator reads too fast, with no emmotion, and no pauses for punctuation. She sounds almost mechanical in her reading, and has turned an amazing novel into a tedious, barely intelligible verbal race to reach the next chapter on a single breath. Don't waste your money, select another version.
