    Story
    "Sucked me in"

    Here again I am not enamored of the king (Charles II) or the time period during which this novel is set but I took a chance and once more was very happily surprised. This story is told from the point of view of a commoner, Merivel, who is brought into the king's intimate circle. After falling from grace, he is cast out amongst the lower echelons of London society. The author runs the gamut of experiences through Merivel's eyes-from the Great Fire of London to an asylum for the insane. I loved the book and the narration.

    "Extraordinary"

    Fantastic story. I have read a lot of Rose Tremain and admire her writing greatly. This was unsurprisingly fascinating, but the narrator, Rupert Degas, brought the whole thing to life in a way that far outstripped my imagination when I had read the book previously. A proof in point as to what audio books are all about.
