For me the value was in the initial premise - you're responsible for how you use your time. The rest of the "do what you love the money will follow" text did not add anything new.
Hard to listen to the bad French accent of the lead character.
The French accent of Yvonne made her character unlikable.
I've read all the books in this series. The main characters are great and the reader wonderful. However, the author seems to dwell relentlessly on morbid topics. The first book had more hope as Maisie rose to fulfill her talent. She hasn't evolved since.
I expected a fascinating tale of medieval life, but it is relentlessly full of sadistic voilence, rape and sexual sadism. I continued as far as Part 3 hoping for better sections, but I am mystified as to what people see in this book. I took pity on myself and my sick feeling and stopped for good.
One of the very best Dickens I've read and the reader is superb: subtle, smooth and does the voices wonderfully.
