I have only ever listened to Curtis Sittenfeld's books but have found them all amazingly entertaining as audio books.
When Kate acknowledges her lust for the neighbor.
I thought she did a great job with the male voices and Jeremy was portrayed perfectly.
Kate, without a doubt. I love characters that I can sometimes be really angry at, yet feel sympathy for and she did that many times over.
I would compare it to the first book of hers I read: What Alice Forgot, because it has similar themes of marriage, trust and real-life situations.
But her style reminds me of Kingsolver in many ways, and Margaret Atwood.
No, but I am sure I will.
Tess....mainly because she emerged as my favorite of all of them (and to get Connor's phone number)
Highly recommended listen. I have read What Alice Forgot but plan to purchase it in audible now to listen to it read to me in the proper accent.
Yes, but I would recommend LISTENING to it as I think the author's voice, plus the 2 others lend a veracity and gave me connections to characters I might not have gained by reading it.
The narration of Uncle Nabi's relationship to Suleyman Whadati (his letter to Pari)
no, it's best enjoyed in a leisurely way, the way you enjoy poetry or music
Thomas Cromwell, a renaissance man? If you are in any way interested in this period of history (Henry Tudor, his wives and his political advisors) you MUST listen to Simon Vance bring Master Secretary Cromwell to life....along with Henry himself, Anne Bolyen, Thomas Moore and all the other major characters in this amazing, real life saga.
The way Mr. Vance was able to make me see Thomas Cromwell as a human being, not the self-serving politician he has always been presented as through history and fiction. Every moment he spoke as Cromwell I felt even more sympahty for him.
pretty much everything, even his portrayals of women
I would give anything for Master Secretary Cromwell to invite me over for a glass of wine and a chat about intrigue.
