This story is supposed to take place in Roman Britain and is told in the first person, however it is narrated by an American. The story is written in a series of short sentences making it sound like a police report and uses many modern phrases. I feel that the setting could be changed to any era without much change. It's a total waste of money
I would not listen to this author again as I found the writing style to be lacking.
Again, the accents do not match the location of the story. I would listen to this narrator again, but not in a British story.
I am very disappointed and plan on trying to return it.
Only if they were reading it. I liked the story, but the narration will put you to sleep!
The narrator attacks every sentence as an individual entity giving each one the same intonation. She even uses this same cantor when giving Chapter numbers and reading the authors note at the end. Her narration does not flow with the story making it very boring.
Fortunately, the story was good enough to get me past the narration. I would not read any more books read by this same narrator.
