There are long empty spaces on this recording. The speaker is not pausing, there are at least half a dozen blank spots on the recording, no background sound. Weird. The the story is pretty good and very funny at times if you like dark humor.
The narrator whispers occasionally making it hard to hear her. The story is kind of self righteous which is annoying. Occasional contradictions in the story which drive me mad.
This is a very detailed account of Elizabeth the first's reign. The really great thing about this book is that Elizabeth's life is presented by her achievements but also her personal habits, her everyday routine, and plenty of stories of her long courtships that leave the listener to draw their own conclusions why she never married. She led a charmed life in many ways but she had more hardships than most people may realise. Elizabeth was a strong willed woman, highly intellectual, funny, practical, responsible and very human. I'm proud to have Elizabeth as my middle name. She was a woman way ahead of her time. She changed England for the better. I enjoyed this book very much and would recommend it to anyone curious about this amazing woman.
I enjoyed this book-great mystery but it was the characters who made a lasting impression. I actually miss the two main characters. I would love it if a new mystery came out with these characters. I very much enjoyed this book, its use of language and the way the characters almost reached out and touched me. I highly recommended this book.
Exhilarating, fascinating -left me wanting more! Their world in this book is so foreign to the reader you don’t know what to expect. The main characters are engaging and you care about them right from the start. I would recommend this book to anyone of any age looking for an adventure (except this book is not for the very young). I’ve never done this before; I bought the second book in the series before I was even finished listening to this one; its that good!
