I've been an audible listener for several years now. Brick Lane is one of the best titles I've listened to. The narrator's accent gives the book a wonderful authenticity. I was fascinated by the opportunity to witness the immigrant experience of Bangladeshi families in London. The characters were so real and so sympathetic. There's no "bad guy" in this book. Just real people and their life experiences. This is a book you will think about for a long time after you have finished listening to it. Don't miss it!
Sorry, the narrator sounds like a car salesman. All the power and drama are gone.
This book looked interesting and I enjoy series. As soon as I started to listen I was struck by how this appeared to be an attempt to create another Harry Dresden type book. However, I thought the writing was unimpressive. I might try the narrator again, but I think he was stuck with a poor script.
Before you listen to all the criticism of this narrator, I have thoroughly his presentation. I have read all 4
of the Ice and Fire series and then listened to the audio books through Audible. Roy Dotrice is wonderful and I put off ordering the 4th book because of the reviews of John Lee. He is different, but just as enjoyable. I found I could easily tell when he changed characters. I do think it helps if you have read the books first. If you are anxious to hear the 4th book, don't hesitate!
