I enjoyed this book almost from the first few paragraphs and it delighted me as it went on to a very interesting plot. The description of the war time rationing and the way of life was something I knew about from my grandmother but the story helped me understand how the people coped with everyday life. I fell in love with the characters, reveled in the thrill of being a spy. enjoyed the travelling with the agents. Well done well researched.
I wasnt sure I would enjoy this story as it had a lot of war in it but I really enjoyed it. Jennifer Van dyk was a great narrator and made the story come alive. The description of the towns and citadels made it easy to imagine you where right there with them. I look forward to reading and listening to more of these stories.
I enjoyed this story. It was an enjoyable romance. Towards the end I just wanted to shake the two main characters but I loved the history and romantic period the story was set in. The narrator was good although I wasnt so keen on her male voices.
I would recommend this story I had no trouble in getting into the story and found it hard to stop listening to it. I liked the way it brought forth the two sides of racial problems based on nationalities or just looks.
I had a giggle at the accent and the mans view of sex.
I actually started reading this series of Diana Gabaldon first. I could not believe the research, the descriptions and the way the whole story just captured your imagination. I love the way she writes and I think of the whole 3 series this one was my favourite. Well worth listening too. Davina Porter does an excellent job of the narration.
The novel has a excellent story line and you get to love and know the characters, especially Claire and Jamie. Davina Porter does all the voices of the characters in a superb way of making you think it is really them. Loved the series.
I loved the whole series of Voyager the history the description. The research that went into the story was amazing.
Dick Francis is the gentleman of writers. I always enjoy his stories , the descriptions make you feel like you are there with the hero.
I must say I loved both this book and "the house of flowers" by Charlotte Bingham. They were books I did not want to finish reading. Kim Hicks narratation also is wonderful. A thoroughly enjoyable read and I learnt a few facts about life pre world war 2.
