I had just finished The Other Boleyn Girl...was thrilled to find out there was a second book. The narration was top-notch!
All Gregory's books in the Tudor series. Also, Connie Williams Oxford time travel books take you back to the 14th century.
I loved all the narrators. Anne of Cleaves ... she nailed the German accent...and the character had such an air of dignity. Kitty was equally good. Listening to Kitty speak...you just knew it was a young girl. So enjoyable!
Living in King Henry's Court...a Tale of Three Women
Phillipa Gregory has made me a Tudor fan. Ms. Gregory paints such a rich picture of life within the walls of a palace. I cannot phathom the amount of research that must have gone into these books. I read The Other Bolyen Girl first...was in tears when the book ended as I was not ready to leave court yet...only to find out there is a SERIES!!!!! I had read the Red Queen a few years back. King Henry and all his wives makes for an incredibly interesting story. I especially liked the history lesson on the church of England.
money corrupts all
McTeague's wife. Kept hoping she would do the right thing.
When wife would not give McTeague any money, leaving him to walk the streets.
There were a lot of twists and turns I did not expect. I liked that.
This is not a book you will play over and over in your mind. However, a good read none the less. Basically, a journey of one man's life....money....and choices.
I prefer the audio version rather than print.
I loved the angel of odd circumstances (I think that was what they called him). Great Hungarian accent...very fitting for the character...had me laughing.
I honestly do not follow performers...I probably should take notice. Awesome narrator.
This is an extremely long book. It is a collection of short stories, probably a few novellas. Enjoyable book, I am still listening .... have not heard all the stories yet.
I am guessing Poe must be one of the original "horror" authors. I love good horror, not just blood and guts...stories with a bit of a message to them. There is a reason his writings are still popular today. I highly recommend giving this collection a listen.
