I stopped halfway through this book as I kept losing interest. It is quite simply boring. The characters are unsympathic, there is no real tension and any excitement of the time or history is lost in the ramblings of Lucretia's emotional waffling between love for her Borgia Family and disgust at their horrible acts.This is not worth the $$ and was very disappointing.
The performance was good, not great. Easy to follow.
None really, sorry to say.
Historical fiction can often be redeemed by the place the characters have in the history of their times and all of these characters appear heinous and without merit. No true information about clothing, the architecture or Rome. Nothing about the food, the action is mostly in Lucretia's head and in this read that is a very dull place indeed.
I read many of the other Wheel of Time books, but this one only listened to the audio version, so I cannot compare.
Yes, this was the finale to a wonderful series by Robert Jordan. I felt that the end was rushed and am awaiting a sequel...lol
They did an outstanding job, so many characters and what a big time commitment.
Impossible, as are all of Jordan's books.
I thought for all the details and drawn out characters and sub-plots the wrap up at the end was rushed. What happens to all the characters who live on...I think an epilogue would have been appropriate unless Mrs. Jordan wishes to have a series of sequels published. That would be disappointing as I have journeyed so long with this series and wish the ending was more thought out. Sad....
Young preteens, but even they are too smart for this convoluted tale.
She does a good job with bad story line and dumb partial characters.
Everything, this book is so disjointed it ends up being a waste of time.
Francesca Lia Block, you should know better, terrible.
I like the plot and character development, so many "didn't see that coming" experiences.
Really fun,hope Mr. O'Malley is writing about Bishop so I can have more adventures with this cast of characters.
Miffanwy, of course, but all the the characters were authentic enough to make me feel that I was encountering individuals...
This series is fun and great to listen to, quite a bit of action
Her performance is really great, but I suspect as most of the characters are male, a male voices might have worked out better.
This book did not seems to progress in much of a significant way, most of the story is in the main character's head. America Singer vaccilates between confused teen and responsible mothering girl with character. This story could have been so much more fun and expanded upon. What do these girls do all day, sit and wait for the Prince. Gosh, I really do not think many of them would last with the level of boredom.
I thought Amy Rubinate was wonderful, so I am going to listen to something she has performed.
I have not listened to other performances from Amy Rubinate, but I am going to do so.
