The story was interesting and worth finishing, but my fourth graders can read better than this. She sounds like a truly bad actor.
She sounded like a bad actor - overdone, voices unrealistic, just really badl
This story would have been much better with another narrator.
i would and have.
Excellent writing, interesting history, characters to care about and carry with you. And the story is outstanding.
She reads easily and well, differentiating the characters. All she needs to do to improve is learn to pronounce "dressage."
Highly recommended, both in print and audio.
i'd recommend reading it, not listening to it.
Her reading is flat, calling words rather than reading. Quite hard to tolerate.
Roberts tells a good story. It's a shame a better reader wasn't found.
The reader pauses mid-thought and mid-sentence. Very distracting.
No. The narrator was simply awful, with her totally inaccurate and annoying southern accents. Ugh!
As above, her accents are awful and quite distracting.
Absolutely. It's a good story, with interesting characters and an exceptional reader.
Unlike many audio books, in this case, I'd rather listen than read. He has a beautiful voice, excellent accents, and since I don't speak French, he really added something by letting me know how the names and places should sound. He's a keeper, and I'll be looking for more books just to hear him read.
Yes, but I save it for my two-hour-a-day commute.
I have just discovered this series, and hope it will go on for many, many more books.
Yes, if they have liked other Dan Brown books. The DaVinci Code is my favorite.
There was too much jumping around to get TO the ending.
He's a good reader, and does Dan Brown very well.
The reader makes the book, and in this case, the reader was really better than the story. But like other Dan Brown books, this one sent me to Google to do more research. His books really make the reader reader/listener think, and I like that in a book.
Excellent book, great story, very real characters. I received the hardcover as a Christmas gift, then bought the audio book to listen to as I drove to and from work. It was even better as an audio book, and that is something I rarely say. The readers were terrific - this is what all audio books ought to be. Listen to this one. You won't be sorry.
This isn't my favorite book of his, but I did enjoy it very much. I listen to about ten hours of audio books per week, and my major requirement is a good story - I need to stay awake while I'm driving. This was a very good story, and I liked the characters.
Pronunciation of local character names and words seems to be a problem in ALL audio books, and directors or producers should address it before the reader begins. This is not Conroy's problem, it's a general audio book issue.
