Not much can be added about this book. A classical roman about classical people. The idea is pretty simple, but the description is a bit difficult. Too many characters, too many details and events. The narrator is not expressive, women and men talk in the same way. I guess there are books for reading and books for listening, and perhaps this book is not for listening.
The book is great. The plot is touching. Till the very end you hope everything will be fine, and it's really hard to keep yourself from drawing a parallel between the heroes' lives and that of your own. Indeed, what happened to the heroes could have happened to Romeo and Juliette had they not died.
A special tribute must be paid to the narrator. Due to his unsurpassed skill the heroes and even their voices are so vivid. The book has lots of dialogues, but due to Mark Bramhall you can not only recognize who's talking immidiately, but also feel the finest nuances of their mood!
