Loved the book but a bit disappointed with the end. All in all, a good book.
I bought this book because I absolutely LOVE Rosalyn Landor. She is one of my favorite narrators. However, half way into the book, I found myself skipping ahead bit by bit. I agree with some of the other reviews..to much left unexplained and the story simply dragged on and on and on. I'll have to listen to other books by the author. One irritating book does not make a bad author. I'll hope for better.
I loved the story and the way Kate Quinn took you inside the Borgia life. She didn't do as most and immediately go for the incest story. As a matter a fact, it was briefly mentioned.
The three narrators made the story interesting and kept it from being another male narrator trying to pull off a female voice.
Loved them all!
Carmelina. I don't know why. :)
I wish Kate Quinn's other books were in audio too.
Yes. Great story. I loved all three narrators.
Obviously listen to the Serpent and the Pearl first. It is book 1
I laughed a lot, winced a few times but loved it.
More audio from Kate Quinn
Not just a basic romance where every move is anticipated. This book is about discovery. So many emotions are brought to surface throughout the entire book. The narration was delivered superbly and the characters were almost life like.
So far, this is my overall favorite in the Duchess series.
The Agincourt Bride was fascinating and I was totally absorbed. There was a perfect mix of historical information and fiction to give the book life. The narrator was enchanting and I will look for more titles narrated by her. I thought the book was well researched and well written. I hope it ended the way it did because a second book is in the works.
I'll not slam the author or the character in the story. However, I found the book too harsh and disturbing. I believe there is a way to tell the stories of those with DID without going into such graphic details about the abuse.
Also, at times, I noticed inconsistencies in the doctor's therapy notes and a few things I found difficult to believe from the character. Again, that is my personal opinion and I developed that opinion from my own experiences.
I do not recommend this book to anyone who is interested in truly learning about DID.
I also strongly do not recommend anyone with DID listen to this book.
The graphic nature in describing the abuse of the character
I tend to follow narraters and particular authors. Donada Peters is a fav. I really didn't know what to expect from this book but it was amazing. There were several unexpected twist and the book was very well written. Will follow this author now.
