Yes, I'd like to listen again to pick up on some of the smaller details/descriptions
Agnes, the character really drew me in.
Agnes. Morven Christie is an amazing performer. As Agnes her often breathy tone really brought across the feeling of despair. All of the characters are done well. You hardly notice a change in her voice yet it sounds like different people are reading.
Hmm not sure.
I bought this book purely based on the fact that Morven Christie was the narrator. I hadn't heard of it before and probably wouldn't have given it a second glance otherwise. I was not at all familiar with the real life event and found this work to be quite surprising and very interesting. I'm now off to google it to learn more :)
Probably not. It was quite a slow start but started to get a bit better midway through. I felt it was lacking a bit, didn't flow as well as I would have liked.
I liked that it was a 'look back' story. The characters didn't unfold well. Felt I was missing something.
No I haven't heard her work before. I thought it was a pretty good performance.
Not really. I've listened to much more exciting works about the same era.
Has good potential but I think each storyline should be fleshed out more. I felt the story cut off and went back to present day before I got enough from the past.
I liked the story but... the description needs to be changed. This book is very religious yet no mention is made of that in the description?! I was drawn to the book because of the time period and what I read in the description. I felt like everything in the description was 2nd place to the religious parts. I don't have anything against religious texts but when you are promised one thing and get another.....
Moving. Thrilling. Heartbreaking
So many to chose from,but I lost my composure when Julie's mother wrote to Kittyhawk
They were fantastic. Best narrators I've heard so far. I particularly like the voice of Julie.
The whole story was moving
This book was purchased on a whim and not my usual type of read. So glad I purchased it. I've also never written a review before but this book was so good I just had to!
