Bryson is awesome - so much information you have to listen many times to absorb its content. He writes in such an easy and enjoyable way - great if your interested in history and like it delivered to you in an entertaining manner. Highly recommended.
This is an amazing story but I couldn't bring myself to finish it. The narrator had a very heavy American accent, who failed to bring me into the world of this Russan Queen. Deakins reading was boring, and inappropriate for this wonderful tale. Totally spoilt my experience.
A female voice as it's about a female Queen. Joanne Lumley would have been perfect.
Nancy Wake was an amazing woman - a spy in WWII. There was so much detail in this book - historically, emotionally. I really felt there with her - such a strong and very brave woman - a inspiration to us all. Makes you feel grateful for the life you do have.
It was amusing, serious with some terrific quotes that I will try to remember when needed. If you like British detective stories this one will be for you. Very easy to listen to - well I just love Stephen Thorne voice - and he's so great with the characters.
Yes - thinks he is just an amazing reading.
I quote from Frost to his boss.
At first I didn't think I would like this novel. But no - its was great and I really enjoyed it so much I listened twice. Great plot - very believable and feel good story line.
This was a totally gripping novel. I couldn't stop listening. It had me so wrapped up in the story line it was the first thing I started to listen to as I woke up. Great twist at the end. Highly recommended.
I found this a disappointing novel, it was very repetitive and nothing like as good as Witness. The whole story line could have been much better in its plot.
Fab book, so funny. If you love shopping and all things girly this is the book for you. Emily Grey is a wonderful reader. AAA+++
Great detective novel on a Greek island. Become involved in the life of the small island and their culture. Exciting and with interesting character development. Zouroudi is easy to listen to and a most enjoyable audio book.
