I personally like David Hyde Pierce as an actor immensely and that was one of the selling points of this book... But his narration is flat and I find myself drifting away - nothing is holding me to the story. I'm sad I chose this as one of my first books but I don't think there were any reviews yet when I purchased it.
My partner read this book and told me it was fabulous - I listened to it and found it to be a great read too. I loved Flavia, had I read this when I was a teen or pre-teen, I would have wanted to be Flavia.
The reader was fabulous, Flavia is 11 and so often, you know that the reader is an adult, Flavia sounded 11 and this made the story so much more fun.
I really enjoyed the story but the reader really made it hard to listen to.
But really enjoyed the story immensely. I fell in love with the families, the nuns and the midwives.
I had high hopes for this book after A Discovery of Witches, I was not disappointed. I loved how while they were in the past, the people they left in the present would find artifacts that let them know they were still alive... well woven, written and read! Looking forward to the third installation.
I really enjoyed meeting Adelia in this book and am looking forward to the rest of the books in the series. What really drew me in was the time period in which this takes place, not a commonly written about period and that in itself made the story fun.
One of my favorite authors, read by one of my favorite readers, what more could you ask for?
I started listening to this book and just could not get into it. A couple of months later, I tried again, this time, I really was able to get into it and enjoy the heck out of it. A bit of old school crime novels, magic and a bit of steampunk to boot. I fell in love with Jake Sullivan and my heart broke when his did...
But saw all the movies... and Michael York's narration put those movies to shame. I was enthralled.
My sister recommended this series to me and I was very pleasantly surprised with the first book. Changeless has shown me that the first book was not a fluke. Alexia Tarabotti Mcconn, is a force to be reckoned with and I really like that she and her husband adore one another... This series makes me laugh out loud!
I really enjoyed this book however the reader made the main character sound like she was always stoned rather than a lovely southern drawl.
