Excellent! So far, one of my favorites.
Paterson has done some outstanding research, and Meadows was a very good narrator.
The book had a sizable population of Victorians, and he did an impressive job with them all.
I wholeheartedly recommend this work.
Any involving the snobbish father and sister.
A Jane Austen novel about dull people is still better than most novels by others.
Creepy story, but the creepiest character is the one you'll like best. Excellent narration perfect for the tale. Very well done.
There are many.
I have done both, and the book is excellent either way.
Diderot and His Times.
I use this in college classes, and my students enjoy it.
Really riveting novel, but narrator not good. Her English accent is overdone, all male characters sound like Bela Lugosi, and the American girls speak in scratchy monotones.
The story is a good one--buy the book and avoid this narrator.
Desite the author's occasional flash of genius at description, her dialogue is incredibly tedious. Each conversation appears to include sputtering sentence fragments, and characters ask "What?" any time they hear something unexpected or surprising. I almost wish I had kept track of the superfluous uses of "What." Except for a couple of lusty passages, this could easily have been a Young Adult book.
I can't really say that I know what genre this was.
I don't really know. Jacob does accents well, but her methods of expressing anger, sadness, surprise, and everything else are nearly identical and are over-acted.
Dimple and Jamie are entirely useless characters.
Not worth the hype.
Probably. It's an interesting story, though there are loooooong stretches of too much description.
No. It's a standalone story.
I would recommend it as relatively light fiction. The story doesn't really have an enormous amount of depth, though it is diverting enough.
This is the first audio book I have heard by Ms. McGovern, and she does an excellent job.
Cora's meeting with her biological mother.
I'm not sure that the story wouldn't have worked just as well without Louise Brooks. She didn't really add anything.
In the top third.
Very well-written without being the least bit dry.
Prebble is an otherwise excellent narrator, but I do wish he would learn to pronouce "cavalry" (he says "caverry") and "chivalry" (he says "shiverry").
The death of Princess Charlotte in childbirth is a sad event.
Perfectly adequate narration.
A Pitiful Bunch of People.
Character development strangely weak. There isn't a single likable person in the story except for Hannah and Jack, the only two people who are not developed at all. Overall, the book is interesting at first, but the reader will get to the point of not caring in the least.
I love this book.
My first by Sissy Spacek, but I cannot imagine a better narrator.
There is already a film made from the book, and it's wonderful.
