This is among my top three.
I loved that that the story unfolds so beautifully. Although you know what is going to happen from the beginning it is very compelling and has lots of very lovely moments.
I think the narrator made this perfect. He uses appropriate tone, pronunciation and pacing of delivery for the period in which the novel is based. The different characters- male/female/child whilst easily differentiated are not made into an over the top performance. First class narrator.
There is good use of music for chapter/scene breaks.
Yes. These are a lovely addition to the fuller stories and who doesn't love Magnus?
I thought this was a great performance and would love to hear more readings from Andrew Scott
I have sadly had to abandon the audible version and will return to print to finish this novel. The narrator sounded so wrong for the part (look at the guy on the cover- he doesn't sound like this!!) and relentlessly mispronounces words (autoMAYton), but the killer for me was the female voices! Must they all sound so 'ditzy'?? I just couldn't get past it- I envisioned them all as candy floss haired drag queens bitching about their high heels....
I would not recommend this audible edition. Should always listen to a sample first.
Disappointment. Received a good recommendation.
