Like all of Ms. King's stories, this one unfolds slowly and deliberately. Usually this serves to build suspense, but it didn't work so well in this story. There were a few places that I found rather tedious and just couldn't wait to get past. Overall, though, it is a good story, rich with scenic detail, history, and interesting characters.
Narrator Jefferson Mays did a very good job with the material. He has a strong masculine voice, but was still able to do the female voices convincingly. He carried off the various British accents very well.
No. I felt the performance was average at best. The story was tedious and trite. With a lackluster combination like this, I couldn't finish it.
No. I'm not impressed with his writing. His attempts to stir up empathy for his male character were clumsy at best. The dialogue was stiff and wordy. And the story just didn't move. I kept waiting for something to happen! Finally I just gave up and deleted the book from my device.
Pleasant, average, ordinary.
Don't waste your time!
