Who knew Charles Dickens had a more talented contemporary. I thank Lincoln Childs and Douglas Preston for leading me to this book in their last Pendergast saga. Great book.
Marian Holcombe is the pivotal character. Without her love and devotion to her sister the plot never works.
Count Fosco - so pretentious and done so well by the narrator.
As is Dickens, this should be required reading in high school. Better characters, better story, less lengthy descriptions.
Been listening to recorded books for over 15 years and have told many friends that Scott Brick could read me the phone book and I'd enjoy it. 'Salt' was interesting but was made fascinating by the talents of Brick. I am anxious to start both 'The Company' and "Alexander Hamilton' just to hear that slightly arrogant, always expressive voice. When I chose books, I search for his latest first. Keep him going!
