The narrator did a great job of distinguishing the different characters with slight changes in accent and cadence. He brought Cormorant Strike alive for me, in both books.
This book is reminiscent of Red Sparrow for me as there are a number of characters to keep track of, but both books are compelling, interesting and have fabulous main characters.
There were so many! But I would have loved to have seen the interview at the publisher's house and the final confrontation scene on film. I also adore the relationship between Cormorant and Robin - their respect for each other, love for their work, and unwitting attraction makes for great listening.
An intriguing mystery with great characters. A must "see".
This second novel is as strong as the first in my opinion. We learn a little more about Strike and Robin's pasts and the mystery is well developed. A GREAT listen!!!
Fun, Romantic, Clever
That's tricky. I love Darcy (but who doesn't love a Darcy character), Queenie always makes me laugh, and I enjoy trying to figure out Granddad's cockney slang! But Georgie has to be my most favourite character. I love how she wars with herself between the new opportunities of the time for women and the old fashioned expectations of her royal relatives. Go Georgie!!!
She is one of those narrators who can give each character a completely distinctive voice, from the posh tones of Georgiana to the cockney accent of her grandfather and the nasal tones of Queenie. Katherine's narration makes these books for me.
This was my favourite of the series so far, but each one just seems to get better than the last. I laughed many times, but the mystery of this one was really well constructed.
Put this at the top of your holiday wish list. The best 9 hours you'll spend this holiday!
Of all the romantic fiction I've listened to, this was by far the best. I laughed and laughed and cried and loved each character. You will not be disappointed.
