I enjoy the series.
Any of the other Bastion Club books.
I would have much preferred to have Jill Tanner as the narrator. I found this reading to be tedious and I wasn't able to concentrate on the story when the narration was so different than the previous books and not half as good. Pronunciations were different (Dalziel, for example) and I found that distracting. I especially found Crossley's women's voices to be both annoying AND distracting. This is a terrible thing to do to the author's work.
I had an extreme reaction to the narration from the very beginning.
It's a shame that a decent book was made almost "unreadable" by the very poor decision (for whatever reason) to change narrators in the series and to select such a poor one. The story is good.
The continuing story of Matthew and Diana and their family. The history. The characters. The writing. It was all wonderful. A must read to end the trilogy.
To avoid a major spoiler, let me just say that the most memorable moment happens in New Haven.
She is brilliant! Her character voices are excellent. I was a bit confused at the fact that Gallowglass' accent changed in this book but I can live with that. I actually like the Scottish burr but it was hard to get used to at first. This is not a complaint; Jennifer is one of the best readers there is.
Yes, both. Deb Harkness has a writing style that evokes emotion and I did laugh out loud at some parts and cried at others. I even got angry.
Good ending to the series but I see more stories in Deb Harkness' future. Bring 'em on!
As much as I have liked this series, I felt like I had wasted 10 hours with this one. I found Maisie very annoying. The story was good but the last part of the book, the retrospective, was tedious and Maisie's reluctance to commit to James (or not) almost caused me to give up on the book.
Yes. I'm looking forward to the book due this year (which is not a Maisie book) and I will probably read the new Maisie series starting in 2015. At least I'll give it a try. The earlier books were very good and I enjoyed them a lot but I ended up getting very frustrated by Maisie's personal life.
I've always like Maisie and James with Priscilla's boys.
I'm not sure but I'm reluctant to read the next book in this series.
I like most of the Cynster characters so they bring something to the story. But not enough.
The earlier Cynster stories were very good. The series started to fade with the previous book and it has really dropped with this one. Maybe Stephanie Laurens just had a bad book.
If someone hasn't read any Mary Balogh books before, it MIGHT be entertaining.
Other than having the same family members, this was NOT the third book in a trilogy. The title meant nothing (at least not yet and I've read 3/4 of the book.) And continuity from the first two books is nonexistent.
Absolutely! She does a fabulous job even with this book.
Total disappointment. I was looking forward to actually listening to a continuation of the previous books in the trilogy and this book didn't do that at all.
The characters are annoying.
Best Gamache yet!
Constantly! Louise Penny writes so that many possibilities exist for the situations in which the characters find themselves. The suspense builds throughout the book.
Over the course of the series, he has become Gamache to me. Louise Penny's words create the amazing pictures of the characters and Three Pines (also a character) but Gosham brings them to life.
All is not what it appears.
This is one of the best books I have read all year. I cannot recommend it enough. But don't start out reading this book. Start with STILL LIFE and experience the entire series. Louise Penny is brilliant!
Yes. The series is light and fun.
The ending when Darcy says he's staying at the manor. Usually he's running off somewhere.
I liked the twins. (Two characters, I know, but they were done so well.)
Yes - and I did!
