Gemini | [Dorothy Dunnett]

Gemini

In Scotland in 1477, in the international world of trade and commerce, ruin is the only reward for those who do not know the rules of the game. When Nicholas de Fleury returns to Edinburgh after four years' absence, rumours are rife about why he closed all his ventures in Scotland and deserted his friends. Struggling to fend off his enemies' attempts to kill him, Nicholas rejoins the fledgling court of young King James the Third, and finds that the perilous family squabbles of James and his treacherous siblings are every bit as dangerous as the intrigue he has left behind...

    "O Niccolo"
    If you could sum up Gemini in three words, what would they be?

    Can't be done...words cannot express the scope and magnetude of this excellent piece of Historical Fiction.

    Having anxiously waited for what seems to be forever, finally more of the House of Niccolo!

    Audible, please make the Spring of th Ram (Book 2) and Scales of Gold (Book 4) available as quickly as possible! These books should be savored in the order they were written and as I have read them in the "old-fashioned" way atleast once a year since they were originally released in print.

    It is so wonderful to have the books currently available read by such an accomplished narrator. Beautiful inflexion; realistic and measured pace just as I would have imagined Ms. Dunnett to have meant.

    So very pleased!! I will keep these books in "My Library" for always!

    Story
    "A wonderful conclusion to an epic tale."
    If you could sum up Gemini in three words, what would they be?

    entertaining, informative delightful


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gemini?

    the birth of Jordan


    What about Geoff Annis’s performance did you like?

    Geoff Annis flows seamlessly from character to character and his various Scots accents when used are accurate. Moving between male and female one forgets that this is one reader and this is a very skillful performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I am loath to make any comment here as I may spoil the book for others.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been moved to comment for the first time in the defence of the narrator as I have seen negative comments by someone who is not familiar with Scots accents and found them "silly"
