An outstanding pieces of writing and reading. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It really filled in the pieces for me.
When she met Edward of York.
Susan's voice is smooth and elegant, her characterizations precise and her transitions between these turbulent moments in history make one feel they are living in the moment she portrays. She really does justice to the work.
I will be listening to this one again. Some things are not in accord with recent breakthroughs but that's to be expected and it's good to hear a professional dietitian's viewpoint. After all, if we only wanted to hear our own prejudiced ideas, we need only listen to ourselves. Lots of valuable information here and it's worth keeping an open mind while listening.
Sadly, this one did not engage me and I was somewhat disappointed. I suppose it's because the main character merely observes rather than engages in the history. There just wasn't enough in this book to live up to her others.
I cruised through all four books in the Matthew Corbett series in record time and enjoyed every one. I did read them in order so it was easier to follow references to past episodes of Matthew Corbett's career. That said, each can stand on its own individually and be completely entertaining without having read any previous novel.
Mr Ballerini does an outstanding job reading and brings all the characters to life. Each character is uniquely voiced so that you instantly know who is speaking. (Very helpful in keeping the characters strait in your head.) I particularly like his ability to make young people sound young and those with more maturity, voiced in keeping with their age.
It was this series which prompted me to change to two credits a month. It's easy to spend them when one has such entertaining characters and exciting, hair raising adventures to look forward to. I definitely recommend all the books in this series.
Loved this story. It was well written and the narration was outstanding. I fully intend to read more of Mr. McCammon, and Mathew Corbett's adventures. While I thought the book was overlong to begin with, once into it, I couldn't imagine any part which could have been eliminated. I hope the next one is as good.
I never met a Kate Morton book I didn't like. This one was outstanding even for Ms Morton. From the beginning you are blown away and at the very end, blown away again. I don't want to spoil it for anyone so I won't give any details. It is sufficient to say, "order it, you won't be disappointed."
The reader was so off for me that I ended up reading it on my Kindle instead. One would expect that when it's such a popular book, Audible would do some focus groups before picking a reader.
The performances were excellent. All the readers did an outstanding job. I generally like Alice Hoffman's works but this one was kind of depressing. Still, a good story that deals with an aspect of history that I knew little about. Sort of like The Red Tent. I guess life wasn't too good for Jewish women during the heyday of the Roman Empire.
Outstanding story. I always wondered how we got the Tudor line on the English throne. It seems it was one single minded women and her courageous son. I guess tough times made for even tougher women. Well worth the listen or the read. Either way, Philippa Gregory never disappoints.
The book was well written and very well read. The story reminded me of The Red Violin. Very engaging. It gave me a better understanding of, and sympathy with the Jewish people.
Predictable but engaging
Typical regency romance. Too bad Georgette Heyer didn't stick to historical fiction with more history.
Even the young men were stuffy and sounded old. The women were not too bad.
Happy ending with very little substance.
