The book is very good, if a challenging listen at times. I anticipated the twists & turns of the story, but I didn't care because I was enjoying the gothicness of it all. Simon Vance does an excellent read.
The story is what it is - a straight adventure story from its time - and as that it's often quite clever and fun. But whenever the narrator had to put on the voice of the Indian princess I cringed, and when the Americans sounded like John Wayne, I was done.
I just love her voice reading this poem. Dry, descriptive, in a mezmorizing way.
I am really having fun with this!!! And, the words are sticking in my memory, which is great. I could care less if it's cheesy, it works and the songs help me remember and recall how to say things. And the story keeps me engaged.
They really need to make Rush Hour Spanish 2!!!
