    (1236)

    Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor", and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of: a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.

    Branden says: "Phenomenallly detailed..."
    "Like listening to a reading of the phone book"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story with something going on. And better narrators.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Elizabeth Kostova again?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about the narrators’s performance?

    Sounded like the Books for the Blind where someone simply read the story. Again, Like listening to the phone book.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Bordeom.
