I read both reviews and went ahead and purchased this book. It is NOT the help. I have attempted to read this book and was quickly confused by the characters metamorphosing into the other. I could not tell who was who until the names were used. I just did not get it. I adored the Help and was bored by the Postmistress. I have no idea if it gets better-I just could not get through the first 3 chapters- ( I had no idea when the chapters change). If I could get a refund-I would ask for double!
Don't waste your credit on this one. I have read 2 other books written by Bryce Courtenay and this one was his worst-read the Power of One-You will not be disappointed!
This book was boring, and pointless. I did not understand the great reviews-One credit wasted!
I love, love, love this book. Very inspiring and full of rich history. If you are a historical fiction buff, this book is for you-if you just love a great coming of age story, this book is for you, and if you love a good book, this book is for you!
The reviews for this series were amazing and I couldn't wait to download this book, however, I was bored silly! The main character is so dry and unlikable, I just could not finish it. I read somewhere this book was translated into English, maybe the "greatness" or hype of of the book was lost crossing the ocean.
Easy read and a wonderfull twist at the end. I listened to this book twice and was able to enjoy it a second time around!
I absolutely loved Pillars of the Earth. World without end -is a sad, sad, sequel. The villain is not as cruel and the characters are not as likable-it is almost a watered down version of the first. I made myself listen to this book,simply because I did not want to waste my credit!
I couldn't get past the first three minutes! Don't waste your money on this one. Try a Dirty job or You suck! those are pretty funny and an easy read.
I honestly had to give this book one star. I tried listening to the first two downloads and I was bored stiff. The sexuality did not bother me as much as the reoccurring question of "What's the point"? As you listen, you really want something to take off and happen, and you end up listening to someone's life step by step, not that thrilling! If you are into eroticism , then this is your book!
