The feeling of the past, bad and good people, bad and good deed.
Yes, it did keep me awake and listening intensely.
His lively and sincere reading is very much to my liking.
As before it is the hangman and his daughter who sit still with me.
Just to recommend this tales to anyone who likes past tales of these ages where evil thrived but good people lived as well. Endless battle of good and evil.
Another performer, maybe.
I cannot say as I did not /could not finish listening to it.
Sorry about this. not all books are good and not all performers are good.
I did listen to the end but it was almost difficult for my follow all ends end odds of everybody. Jet, I did and think I got it all, well almost all.
The plot is complex and many threads laid all over the world almost and it kept my tension awake but not quite on the edge of my seat, no.
I honestly don't remember if I have listen to him before, but he is good and I would listen to him again for sure.
Well, I have to say it might have been shorter for my liking at least.
No and yes the narrator is good.
No, I would not. I never quite got the hang of this story,
Three words? Truth, time, tears.
I cannot name one character and say he or she was a favorite. The old grandma I feel I did not get to know well and the mothers are a little unclear and fogy. But still all equally important,, and made the story.
She, Ms. Ruth Ozeki read all character equally good, I hope she reads more book as well as her own and maybe she has?
I don't know. Is this a story of two parallel worlds or times. Is it a story of her self. Is this a story of what??? Now I am writing and now I am not and then what??
Beautiful story, wonderfully read. Thank you.
No, I would not listen to it again or at least not in the very near future. I very nearly do read books twice.
Maybe the books about the Hangman's daughter by Oliver Potzsch or the Bryce Cortenay's stories about Solomon the London thief. not so very similar apart from the timeframe. I do like stories from the 16th and 17th hundred.
Edoardo Ballerini is absolutely great!
This story made my stay awake longer than was health for me and my work!
Now that I have read/listen to Speaks the Nightbird and the Queen of Bedlam, I will take a brake from Matthew Corbett. But I will com back to him after awhile for sure.
Yes, I would recommen this book to those who like people.
Maybe the beginning of Callie's terrible journey with her father through the woods.
No one scene was a favorite but every person had his or hers moment and I liked the way everybody had a voice although I would have liked to get some insight into the mind of the father.
I almost think it was the wife of the sheriff who was the most memorable for her lack of empathy.
Only to thank all the narrators, I liked them all.
No, I would not listen to this book again. Some books are just one time books and this one is one of them
The female partner of law, Gemma (that is what her name sounds to me) was my favorite although I suspected her at some point to be the killer.
He is a very good narrator and made long courtroom sessions sound short.
Almost but not quite.
If you want some fine law firm criminal story and a good narrator, pick this one.
I never got in touch with this story which probably is because of me lacking understanding af this future language. So I cannot recommend it to anyone and have no more to say about it.
No I would not.
I would not be surprised at that at all!
She did her best I am sure. I did sort af admire how calmly she read all this blunt violence.
Some would like a follow-up book. I do not because I do not like all this unmasked cruelty.
I loved the story overall. Well written, likable people and the atmosphere is so that I almost long to be there.
Perhaps one of the most memorable moments was when Jamie rescued Clair from being burn as a witch.
Evarything. She is very good! And I learn the word "sasanach" a scottish word for an englishman. It sound so soft and Davina Porter makes the scottish sound so romantic.
What Randell did to Jamie in prison was horrific and very saddening.
Just to say thanks for reading this fantastic story to me.
