Not her best but still enjoyed the story. I really like her work, I only wish there were more on audio. I just ordered a bunch of hard cover books by Lofts but I never have the time to read them. Anyhow, I enjoyed this one, the jumping through time is interesting. I do like that you see how it progresses through the years and having a history laid out before you.
I used last months two credits for this book and The Iron King series book 1, I liked this one far more than the other. I am a huge history fan and like to mix it up with some fiction every once in a while. The whole point of fiction is that it can be anything. This made me look at Richard in a different light and I like that it has made me rethink my opinions. I like being able to see other peoples views and this book let me do this in a way. The story was smooth and narration was really well done. I am ordering the other two this month and will post a review more in depth once I have completed the series.
If you are the type who wants all the history straight and 100% this is not for you. This is a book that fills in the gaps that history cannot tell us with one possible story. It is well written in my opinion.
I love Celia Rees's works normally, she is one of my favorites even though she is more for teens than adults. I have loved everything she has written. While this was not terrible, it was not great. It is worth the listen and the narrator is very good, it just was not as great as Pirates or Sovay. Maybe I was too distracted by things around me when I listened, it just did not hit me as her other novels have.
Very informative book and I am happy someone is taking the time to write about these women as there is not much out there and I find them so interesting. I love Phillipa Gregory's style. She keeps me interested, my favorite book is the Queens Fool but I truly love all her work. I am planning to listen a second time in case I missed anything. I am always wishing there were more. For any fan I recommend this book.
I am only about halfway through this and I have not been able to put it down since day one. Martin is the best in this Genre and since discovering his books he has become my favorite. Roy Doltrice is an excellent narrator and between the two they have done an incredible job with this one. I cannot wait to see where this series goes. The series is closest to the book that I have seen in any series, HBO has done a great job, but the books are better. These are the type of books you can read over and over again. The Author creates characters you will love & love to hate. And Doltrice brings the characters out, he does an incredible job. This series has made me love Fantasy, a genre I never took interest in until I started this series. As I said I am only halfway through and totally entranced. Martin is a genius writer.
