Believable, compelling, stimulating
Unlike any other book, this has rich threads of suspense, deep emotion and some twists and turns which keep the listener riveted to the story. Set in the historical context of the early United States, the descriptive elements of the story provide a feeling that listener is actually watching the story unfold. The characters feel real and the lives they live are three dimensional making this one of very best books in it's genre. There really is no other book to compare this to.
Mr. Braa's rich, masculine and true voice bring the characters to life. His narration creates a complete experience bringing the listener center stage. He demonstrates the remarkable ability to make each character real. It's like being there, on the inside of the tale.
It's so easy to identify with different aspects of each character; their struggles, pain, joy, and conflict are immediately felt by the listener. It is truly a remarkable book.
Highly recommend this one!
The story builds quickly and believably captivating the reader to the point where it's impossible to stop listening.
The feelings emerging inside the two main characters are actually palpable. The emotional content is riveting. It's simply impossible to listen to this book casually!
It's not possible to favor one male lead over the other. Rather, the listener loves them both, each for their unique characteristics.
Without a doubt, and re-listen as soon as the first listen was over.
A book I will treasure always.
A remarkably entertaining story about a young Englishman who finds himself living in France trying to sort out who he is, what he's doing there, and oh yes, how in the world this culture actually works. At times hilariously funny. A captivating and lighthearted listen which I've come back to time and again. The narration by Gerard Doyle is beyond compare.
A remarkably captivating story which is difficult to stop listeing to. I've listened to this one at least 4 times already. Anxious to hear the next book which is now out. This is a book you just can't get enough of. The authors really know how to capture the reader (listener) and the narration is simply superb!
