I enjoyed this story. The narrator is superb. The writing is imaginative and atmospheric. Great escapism.
This is such a delightful comedy of human foibles and manners. The characters are lovable and I felt that I had walked into a circle of friends: I really cared about them. The book is so good, I have listened to it twice within the last week. Living in the book is preferable to the grim events of real life. The narrator is simply perfect and picks up the humour and irony to a tee. Pure escapism. I hope there are more to come. Lovely, lovely book.
A lot of the characters are caricatures: the vegetarian, the independent femme fatale etc.
There is quite a lot of preaching about tolerance of difference which I found utterly tedious. The narrator is superb and wasted on such drivel. The author plays it too safe and endeavours to convert the reader to political correctness. A great setting and a fun idea for a cozy but the fearful and timid writing destroyed what it had the potential to offer.
I really enjoyed all the characters in this book. Intriguing story and now I am just awaiting the next in the series. Very atmospheric book...I felt that I was there. The characters are so real and I didn't want to leave them when the story was finished.
This book seems to be well written and the narration is excellent. I simply did not enjoy the era.
This is the absolute pits! I listened for about an hour and thought that if I heard about any more slim waisted men with powerful thighs, I would lose the will to live.
A great yarn. The depravity of it all is brought to life by a fabulous narrator. Really good fun.
I wanted to like this book so much but it was utterly bland and tedious. The narrator was well chosen for such a waste of time.
I listened to this brilliant performance after the completion of the series. The acting and script are excellent. Lots of humour are evoked by the performance and I found it to be highly entertaining and faithful to Trollope's work. Excellent.
This is a social commentary and uses humour and satire to make political points. It is well narrated and the story is entertaining. Not my favourite book but interesting.
