I've not read the print yet -- was instead entranced by the narrator's excellent handling of the dialect. I'm waiting for the sequel - hopefully by the same narrator, and that's saying a lot since I'm not usually one to choose audio over print.
I love Robin Hood stories -- and have read many good ones. This one took a different point of view, with Robin not being the main character, but was enjoyable none the less, with action and wit (though Scarlet carries a fair amount of anger and angst throughout)
No, I haven't, but would gladly hear some others done by her.
Sherwood -- home of the original Hunger Games (sorry - that was a bad one but couldn't come up with anything else)
I didn't always like Scarlet. She's a hard character, prickly and fairly nasty to some. I'm also not completely fond of the standard "romantic triangle" plot, though with Gisbourne around it stretches beyond a triangle. But her internal struggles are very authentic, and her courage is undeniable. As it was just a start, I'm hoping that things look up for her in the future.
Sexy, Wild, Smart
Phryne, easily. She's unique - smart, independent, rich but since she's had less she has no problems with those who aren't in her "class"
Very good. She does the voices well and reads and a good pace.
(okay -- this seems redundant -- see above-- though the Russian dancer is memorable as well).
Occasionally it gets a little racy -- just be forewarned.
Found out afterwards this is also an Australian mystery series available on Netflix. The stories have been changed somewhat, as might be expected. I'm enjoying both the show and the books.
