Surprisingly emotional intrigue
Mathew was an unpredictable central character with frustrating and heroic qualities
Don't know the performers name so I probably haven't listened to him before, but I'll definitely look out for him in the 'read by' target area.
This had me biting my tongue in public before yelling out 'Oh come on' or 'you got to be kidding me'! I don't cry, just refuse. But there was obviously a lot of 'hay fever' about while I reading this.
This is such a great trip back in time into a totally different era. I baulked with the first recognition of when and where this book is set, but some raw tease and action held me until chapter 2. After that I didn't want it to stop. It is a very good story and well presented, and will probably make a great movie one day.
I would suggest it for a lazy weekend escape, something to apply your imagination to and enjoy the story.
It's out of my normal genre for any comparisons.
Never experienced her performance prior, usually prefer male readings, but acclimatized and started enjoying the story more and therefore her performance. Good effort.
It's no where near a 'Girl With' series or many others, it's not sucked-in alarmingly different, but it's a good story to keep the listener (male or female) looking forward to plugging back in and getting back to 'what's going to happen next'.
Story moved quickly, adding more facets with each chapter and holding onto the listeners curiousity. Not predictable.
The young girl (main character's off-sider plus) was suspicious in her abilities but cute in her neediness, she keeps you guessing.
Fast Different Connected
Not an extreme emotive ride, but keeps you on the edge of chair with minimal strings pulled.
It's a enjoyable journey, always looked forward to getting back to it.
It's for the female's romantic loner, who likes old fashioned stories.
It fits the criterea and genre of a certain time frame but could use some more explosive (grab you by the collar and pull you in) interruptions to this 'every day (yawn) life' betrayal.
I thought the narrator did a pretty good job (given the material), the characters are believable and atmosphere transending.
It was dissapointing and I had to force myself back to it several times, just in case it got better and I could justify my 'purchase'.
I was trying for something different in 'excapism' but this genre, or just this book, didn't open up a new area of interest for me.
It's a short story, nothing dramatic with twisted deceptions, so it was fun for a couple of hours.
Maybe the characters went unnoticed, I lost interest in finding the thief.
Bold Overstated Pass
Forget it. Neither Movie nor TV would this story be... not enough 'what the' and it's not about gore or sex or disaster. The stars wouldn't do it anyway.
It was light entertainment for a couple of hours audio, but the story fell into cliches with a predictable ending.
