The story is a little different to my usual read. It got my attention and kept my attention.
I enjoyed the characters that were so well described and their behaviours so well related I could see them. I enjoyed the much less than obvious ending.
This book was my first experience. I enjoyed both very much.
I became frustrated by some of the behaviours of the characters which Is the reaction I think most would have. While I felt frustrated it reflected the emotional connection I had to the characters.
A good experience.
If Never Less than a Lady is typical storyline and writing style of this author, then no I would not try another of her books.
I may listen to A discovery of Witches again, I've been spoiled by Deborah Harkness.
No. I found this narrator disappointing. His voice droned through much of the story and barely stopped between one sentence to the next. Thus far the worst narration I have experienced.
No. Subtracting anyone from the story could leave it even drier. None of the characters caused an emotional response for me to either want them out of the story or enjoy how they were portrayed.
I enjoy a book that has layers. This book did not get my attention let alone keep,it. The narration style only added to my disappointment.
Again a book with layers and characters that were a little surprising. The description of the surroundings painted a picture in which the characters moved about creating the story. The humour shone through.
There were several moments which were not expected. To tell may spoil the story for a reader/listener.
The narrator brought the characters to life making them real expressing their personality traits and behaviours which again made me 'see' the players.
The Italian Innkeeper
The book was a little surprising for me, I didn't think it would be my type of book but it was and I'm very glad I took the opportunity of the thoroughly enjoyable experience.
The various interwoven stories of the lives of the numerous characters.
Nothing I can think of to compare.
The character of Terry was very good.
Yes, towards the end. The unnecessary loss.
The story starts out a little slow and I wasn't sure about the standard of writing, but it builds into great reading.
