This was just a fun read to listen to. Very short and sweet (maybe too short) but I liked how the story was narrated and I felt like I was being told something confidential. It was just something fun to listen to after the election was complete.
How I felt like I was a "fly on the wall."

The end when all hell was breaking loose.
I would listen to it again on a car ride. It is very engrossing and very interesting to read. I was a history major in college so I really eat this stuff up. If you love medieval history and how it blends with literature -- you will enjoy this.
Because the book is told from "different perspectives," it also adds a different yet memorable quality to it. Listening to this as well as the very popular Dracula audiobook featuring Simon Vance and Tim Curry is a good coupling.
The end was very memorable and seemed to give the perception that the story still has more telling.
However, I loved hearing the backstory of Professor Rossi and his times in Istanbul and at University. That was pretty creepy and memorable.
Very good elocution. I especially liked the Rossi character.
I really liked Turgat, the Turkish professor and expert on Shakespear who joins the quest. Very memorable character.
This audiobook was something that I truly looked forward to everyday. It was superbly narrated with a clear sound quality. Ironically, I completed the book on Lincoln's birthday. Wonderfully narrated and crystal clear.
The narrator takes time to differentiate the different historical characters "voices" so you know who is talking at all times. I also liked how it was unabridged. I prefer my books to be complete.
William Stanton, the Secretary of War under Lincoln. She was able to capture the gruff and amazing character of this man that I knew very little about.
They already made a film about this book and it was fantastic!
This audio book would be ideal for long car rides, commutes to work or going to the gym.
Individual actors portray the characters and read from their respective character excerpts -- providing a rich and colorful storyline.
Jonathan Harker's Diary -- the beginning of the book captures you.
A rich and colorful language and deeply well read
