I liked the narrators, I enjoyed the book and the subject made me think a lot. What would I do? The twist at the end was unexpected and made me mad, more then anyting. Overly dramatic and hollywood-ish.
A great thriller that maintains the suspense right up until the very end. And when you think you have it figured out, there are a few more turns. Great book!
This is a wonderful book, a beautiful portrait of two people; one who wants to stay, and one who cannot leave. I found myself feeling their joy and pain, frustration and struggles. I tried to predict what's going to happen and was often wrong. In general, I think this novel could not be crafted more beautifully. I think this is the best depiction of devotion and love that I have read in a while.
What a remarkable listen. The Thirteenth Tale is well written and so hard to stop listening to. Complex and entrancing, the story stayed in the forefront of my mind at all times. I wouldn't stop if it wasn't for my needy family and work...... I couldn't tell what year or even decade is Margaret Lea writing the biography of Vida Winter. Not sure if I really need to know, as I truly enjoyed the timelessness of the story.
This book begins two centuries after The Pillars of the Earth; the most terrible European century with strife, dearth, pestilence, the Hundred Years War and the Black Death.
Very entertaining and I found myself enthralled in the story, constantly thinking about Caris, who dreams of becoming a female physician in a world that will not approve. Great read. I hope I won't have to wait 18 years for the sequel...
What a wonderful book and excellent narrator. I kept looking for things to do around the house, cleaning to be done, garage to be organized, so that I could listen to the Pillars of the Earth.
