Charles Todd creates the physical & emotional aspects of his characters so well. His stories transport me to another time & place,
This book kept me interested and the characters were well thought out. I was left wondering how Jean and Rutledge will end up after the war.
Is it possible to be rooting for young girls who turn to prostitution? These young women are developed into real people with lives and struggles like all of us. I wanted them to be safe from the killer who was stalking them on the streets. The story is a satisfying listen from start to finish. The narrator is excellent especially as the killer is revealed through a few fateful words. I will be looking for another Susan Hill book with the same narrator.
My husband and I brought this book along on our 1000 mile trip with my 87 year old parents. We couldn't wait to get on the road after our rest stops to find out what happens to Nancy. The story was truly inspirational, the reader was easy to understand and her accents and characters were spot on. There aren't many books that I can listen to that interest my husband (a history buff) and my parents (the WWII generation). This was great. This book is in my top 10 list.
The solo bike ride through Nazi-held country was a physical and mental ordeal. I can't think of many people who could have accomplished this.
Her voice is clear and her style fit the atmosphere of the book, from funny moments to the ordeals of warfare - equally wonderful.
Nancy Wake's life was amazing full of life and death and every emotion in between.
Don't miss this amazing story. I did some research while we were listening to this book which added to our admiration of this woman and all those who struggled against the Nazis.
This book is a wonderful mystery as well as a look into the hard times of Irish society. Broken Harbor is a housing development gone bust...but also the people are broken in many ways. The reader shifts from character to character in a very believable voice. The pace never slows down and I return to the book with anticipation every time.
I love the reader's voice, inflections, and interpretation of the characters. Absolutely amazing.
An atmospheric who-done it with two interesting detectives - as entertaining as Inspector Lewis and and Sargent Hathaway, Holmes and Watson.
I will look for more books by this narrator. I love Tana French as well.
I always love to read about the intrigue of the British monarchy but this is too hard to follow.
My husband is reading this book on his IPad and I am listening to it on my IPad. We both find it hard to follow because the different characters are not easily identified when they are speaking - more the style of writing than the fault of the reader.
Who would think that by placing his dirty finger in the wound of President Garfield, a doctor first on the scene would change history. I gained a new respect for this humble mm who became president. Unfortunately, crazy, unstable people continue to kill public figures.
Garfield's wife was a strong, noble character.
