I enjoy The Daly Show so I do not know why I did not get into this. It just seemed boring, and I gave up on it pretty fast.
This is the second time I have listened to this book and could do it again. There is humor along with the horror and history made accessible to the lazy [me]. All the Sharpe books are fascinating and have induced me to read pure history books about this time and especially the career of the Duke of Wellington.
I loved the moments of humor in the midst of disaster.
Patrick Tull narrates the Master and Commander series by O'Brian and I love his narration. He and Frederick Davidson are the Sharpe narrators I will listen to. Otherwise I read the book. Patrick Tull is the greatest!
It is at the top of my listening experiences. I listened to the last one and this one was as good. I wish everyone would listen to this.
Comments about global warming were important.
With a decent performance this could have been a 4 star. I had read the book before and liked certain aspects very much.
The woman lacked some sense.
Anyone. I hate to say such awful things about anyone trying to earn their living, but she was just awful. I could have overlooked, with effort, her too strident, too fast narration and her Southern accent that just did not seem right for these characters. But I can not tolerate someone who did not even prepare herself by discovering how to pronounce the words. "Burnoose" does not rhyme with "furnace", "sanguine" does not rhyme with "beguine" or "queen", and "lithe" [and this one set me off yelling as it was farther in the book and barely hanging on] DOES NOT RHYME WITH "PITH". Look it up or use howjsay.com.
Disappointment. I have been a fan of Blake's for a long time, but her narrators so far are not great.
Yes, I listened, although the voice for the main male was annoying. It is very difficult to get the manly voice correct with the personality, but I was particularly disappointed in this one. But I love this story and it compelled me to investigate the history behind the story.
The story of the escape to the Mosquito Coast and the events there are very compelling. The whole story is fascinating and I have read it many times.
She missed the main male persona completely. Her main female voice sounded too old.
Yes, it is interesting and Patrick Tull is great.
I like all the Sharpe books and this is no exception.
These characters are fascinating and they have a rare chemistry. Really a fun read because of their interaction.
Judith Ivory is incomparable except to Judy Cuervas, her other name. Dance by Cuervas is similar.
I have not paid attention to names, except Patrick Tull, Anna Fields, and Frederick Davidson, but I think Violet Primm was very good and I would definitely listen again to her recordings and pay more attention to names now that I can get more books through Audible. I am not sure, but I think she did The Widow's Kiss which I enjoyed.
I felt anger for the bad way the characters were being treated. I was involved and I loved the older woman, younger man theme.
