I have now become a junkie... this series is so addicting! I love the awkward moments, bits of romance, humor, and mystery. This book is even more fun than the first! Katherine Kellgren is the glue that holds all of the characters together and the book is better for having her read it. I recommend this book to anyone (even if you haven't read the first) and will listen again, and again!
I enjoyed that the main character had a major "flaw" and it wasn't fixed in the end. The stutter became something that endeared the reader to the character.
Richard Armitage did something I wasn't sure a narrator could do for this book: the stutter wasn't as distracting as I thought. He did a GREAT job making each character stand out and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I absolutely wanted to keep listening to this book!
I wish this had been the unabridged version of the book, but we can't get everything we want, can we?
I chose this book because I love Katherine Kellgren. I was unsure of what I wanted to read next, so I just picked a book. I was so pleased! I didn't expect the book to be very interesting, but it really was. The storyline was well developed, the characters were round and interesting, and the emotional journey was complete. I laughed, I cried, I sat at the edge of my chair... It was great! Katherine Kellgren had excellent accents (at least as far as I'm concerned) and took the story to it's full potential. I would recommend this story to anyone! Warning: there are a lot of issues that may not be appropriate for younger listeners/readers.
This was my first Agatha Christie Novel and I loved it! I was so sucked into the story that I didn't want to stop listening! There was a perfect puzzle that blended all of the clues together with Miss Marple inserting the perfect phrase to make you think. The reader was wonderful gave the story life and a little more excitement.
The story was just the right mix of mystery, romance, comedy, and royalty. The book didn't delve deep into one genre: it stayed on the surface of each one. This made the book fun without being too complicated. If you're looking for a mystery that won't be solved until you've read the line, this is not the book for you. If you're looking for a fun, clean, journey through the misfortunes of a young woman, this is an excellent read!
This book was offered at a discounted price to me, so I bought it, not knowing it was part of the True Blood television series. (I don't watch the show... I know nothing about it). I enjoyed the story, and didn't know what was going to happen until the end. I don't really want to read the sexy bits (they're easy enough to skip through.) The reader was good, but sometimes her male voices blended together and I didn't know who was speaking. Bill's voice was a little weird. I enjoyed the story, but I don't know if I'll read (or listen to) more.
The story was suggested by a friend who has similar taste in books but I was reluctant to read it because of the format (letters.) I downloaded the book and was hooked. The characters are charming and they sneak into your heart unnoticed - I feel as though I've made some new friends! The stories about the war made me tear up and the setting that I could picture so clearly, gave the story a real endearing quality. Please. Read this book.
I enjoyed the readers almost as much as the book itself! They helped the story to develop in more concrete ways. Fantastic and recommended read!
