Yes, I would recommend it. The narration is easy to understand, and the writing style is very brisk yet includes a lot of detail. It's a relatively short book, but you get to know each of the personalities in the powerful families. Makes learning history a lot of fun!
Learning a lot of facts about the kings, especially Harold. I had never heard some of the main points of his life story before. All I knew about were some battles he'd been in. In this audiobook, I picked up a lot more.
Her voice is warm and she handles the dramatic tones very well. She lends the narration as much enticing sonic strength as an actor in a play.
Wanted: man of strong character for job in politics. Must not mind intrigue, skulduggery, large hats.
There is one problem with the audiobook. For some reason, the last two shorter segments repeat the end of the second major section. We hear the entire stories of the Despensers and Percys twice. This is some kind of production mistake, and the BBC should post a re-edit with the corrections, to ease the listener's experience.
This is the first Frances Lloyd book I've read. She does a good job of compelling you through the story.
These stories tell you about various shelter dogs, who were "diamonds in the rough," until someone took a chance and adopted them. Every story will bring a smile to your face.
The narrator does a very good job with moving along the story and using his voice to make the story exciting. He handles well the setting and the characters. I have read the story before, but this is the best audiobook edition I have heard.
Although the details were enough to cover the basics of the case, you could learn a lot more from a much longer book. The very short article on the Moors killings is padded even further with stories on completely different cases. This is deceptive on behalf of the publisher. If they were honest about how short the story really is, listeners wouldn't be interested. I find the Moors case fascinating, but Flowers doesn't provide nearly enough for serious, in-depth learning about the case. Oh, and the name is R. Barri Flowers, not just Barri. This story deserved a much better audiobook production.
This is one of those mysteries that has even more twists and turns than promised. It takes a while to get going, but when it does, it turns into a shocking race to the end.
A thriller should not be predictable, but I found myself wishing this would end almost as soon as it began.
This is an enjoyable nonfiction examination of fly-fishing. We hear about how to be good conservationists and how to get along with other fishers. Good for all ages.
I haven't read the print one, but I did think the audio book was good.
A good sense of details. The book featured enough people to give you a number of different angles on the story.
Resigned, bright, repetitive.
A rage killing that stunned a community.
The narrator's voice was almost too perky for the story. He has a naturally high-pitched voice, and this is picky but I think that is unsuited to the nature of true crime.
Yes. It was a bittersweet story about the joy the pets brought into the writer's life.
Izzy. It's so cute to hear about how he helped people and provided them with good company.
When Izzy first goes to meet patients.
Sometimes the best person for the job has paws.
The book is on the short side, and it may be a little sad for very young children, but anyone with an interest in pets and stories of overcoming adversity should enjoy the story.
Yes. Although the major steps in the clue process are relatively simple, you get a lot of illumination on local culture and the nature of the characters.
Oddly, it reminded me of 'The Maltese Falcon' and other classic mysteries from the early 20th Century. It has a sense of film noir about it.
I've listened to part of "The Gathering Storm" and her voice work was good on that one as well.
The discovery of the small child. You want to know who could do something awful to a baby.
I like this series a lot, and I can't wait for the next volume.
