Twists and turns so delightful in this tale. Characters are developed with finesse, action in a world setting that is different but familiar enough to allow entry. But oh my, the ride one takes in this tale. Best author ever, words are a delight. Savor this book.
Swinburne. His eccentricities become endearing in a twisted warped way, and he allows levity to unwrap other characters while hinting at his own. Although the sweeper cat is a hard act to follow.
This is a different world setting, familiar in many ways but strange in others. The narrator read in a way that provides clarity and smooth enough to keep one flowing in the story.
Rewriting the past isn't a picnic in the park. It just takes a moment.
Mark Hodder has to be one of the most creative and brilliant writers of this century. Every one of his books are a delight to read, a delight to listen to, a delight to read and listen again. This series is one of the best adventure, mystery, and challenging story lines in a long time.
Nora Roberts yes, Alan Smyth, No no no.
Narration ruined it for me. Can't say it was like anything I would want to diss. The lack of voice distintion, the changing lisps, the horrible accents, ugh. So disappointing.
A different narrator ad clearly the director who let this out. Shameful for what is a beautiful series and when first was done so beautifully. I preordered, may never again. Smyth ruined the characters.
No. The narrationed ruined it for me.
This should be redone by a gifted narrator, maybe the one from book 1 in series, and replaced for free for those of us that wasted good money.
Not with the same narrator, it was monotone, fast even at lowest speed and no real presentation. So disappointed.
Couldn't bear listening to get into story.
There are many good narrators, one who can tell the story and make
The listening an experience. She could have been reciting the periodic table it was that monotonous.
Wont buy anything with this narrator. Sorry, generally I have a tolerance but it was a frustrating experience.
Oh up in top 10...his other books are in same top 10.
Seemless alternative world. Characters with muliple levels.
Anything to do Swinburne.
The increasing tension as story arc builds.
Great narrator, good pacing.
I will be listening again yes. The storyline runs strong even in the Madame Geraldine's crazy world and the narrator does such an excellent job with the character and voices. I really got the personalities.
Plot fun, kept attention, beautifully written and fun. The narrator made the audiobook one of the best.
A development of the characters that reading cant denote. She is excellent.
I laughed and smiled. A lot.
Love this author and this series as much as the parasol books. Might we please have more? Excellent book, superior narrator and production.
pacing was slow, the new double pov through off the storyline
Why change the formula?
