Yes, I would recommend it. The narration is easy to understand, and the writing style is very brisk yet includes a lot of detail. It's a relatively short book, but you get to know each of the personalities in the powerful families. Makes learning history a lot of fun!
Learning a lot of facts about the kings, especially Harold. I had never heard some of the main points of his life story before. All I knew about were some battles he'd been in. In this audiobook, I picked up a lot more.
Her voice is warm and she handles the dramatic tones very well. She lends the narration as much enticing sonic strength as an actor in a play.
Wanted: man of strong character for job in politics. Must not mind intrigue, skulduggery, large hats.
There is one problem with the audiobook. For some reason, the last two shorter segments repeat the end of the second major section. We hear the entire stories of the Despensers and Percys twice. This is some kind of production mistake, and the BBC should post a re-edit with the corrections, to ease the listener's experience.
What is it like to be a NASA engineer? Also, what is it like to be his cat? This brief book gives us a look into the research that created the Space Shuttle program, as well as its effect on the people and cats who supported it. A fun story for pet lovers, and especially for students just getting interested in science.
I won't ruin the story for you, but the author swerves away from a plausible beginning, into a giant mess, somewhere around two thirds through the book. A waste of time, and something I wish I hadn't bothered with.
The plot is confusing for more than half the book. Then it gets a little better, but some of the problem could have been solved by better editing. Maybe the sequel will be better.
I love a good puzzle, and this one did take a while to figure out. There were twists and turns until the end. Really delves into the evil of the culprit. Could have been longer, but I gather this is part one of a series, so I will look for the rest of it.
The narrator did an all right job. There was plenty of swashbuckling action, especially in the last third of the book. Not much depth, though.
Too confusing and convoluted. Picked up near the end, but that was it. Three locations are too many. Give it a miss.
I won't ruin the plot, but it takes a while to get going. Does a good job of uncovering creepy secrets, which is what a mystery is supposed to do.
Starts off slowly, then gets better in the middle. Does a good job of depicting the killer losing a grip on things. Turned out better than I thought it would.
I have read this before, but this performance of the play was excellent. Very strong acting from the cast. Easy to understand, and a stirring drama that may have you changing sympathies more than once.
This book took a while to get going, but I liked the characters. Less gory than similar books. I will look for others from this author.
