The Goldfinch. Wow! What can I say. In the words of our Australian music guru, Molly Meldrum, I will say, guys, we have a hit on our hands. Yep, I believe this book has got to be a best seller, long term a breaker of records. Man, it's good! Plus, the narration is brilliant.
This is a stand alone story from Peter May, with a good plot driven core and an interesting historical backdrop. The narration is perfect. The characters are full of body. We enjoyed it and will be seeking out more of Peter May's work.
My immersion in this story surprised me. The narrator was just right for the writing style and the plot kept me wanting to know more. The story is old fashioned but accessible.
Very good read with moments of quirky humour amidst the mystery and intrigue. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.
Peter May can really tell a story. I loved his Lewis trilogy and now I've discovered the Enzo Files. Lots of good reading to look forward to.
This is the second book of Peter May's Lewis trilogy. Excellent story and perfect narration.i'm looking forward to the third book.
I've added this one to my absolute favourites. I found the book interesting, entertaining and inspiring. I enjoyed the audiobook so much that I've purchased the print version so I can dip into it whenever I want. Anyone who loves books about books must read this one. The author's narration is perfect, full of passion and self effacing humour, very British. Loved it!
There was something about this story. It felt dated but something about it was really enjoyable. The strong American voice, the policeman that was thwarted at every turn by people who were supposed to be on his side, all made me wonder why I was enjoying the story so much. It must have been because the story was well told and I listened to it every opportunity I could till I knew the ending. It was a page turner.
I really enjoyed the plot and found the characters believable. The backdrop of the Norfolk salt marshes created a wonderful damp wind blown atmosphere and in my mind's eye I could see it's beauty and feel it. The narration by Jane McDowell was just right for me. An excellent mystery.
We didn't finish this one. It got a bit complicated and we just couldn't get into it.
