The Narrator was fine but the characters primary voice should have been a younger one. The voice artist from Emily Barr's Backpack would have been an excellent choice.
If you enjoy Emily Barr- this one Is for you :)
There is a good story here somewhere, but this book doesn't tell it.
The narration was OK
2 chapters devoted to attending a Leonard Cohen concert, a whole chapter devoted to eating a fish salad, drinking a coffee, and visit a old church. Says it all.
"Great narration, gripping but unbelievable"
Storyline. The plot was distinctly unbelievable and positively silly in parts.
No, I have read others by this author which were more realistic and believable.
Narration was great! I really liked the different ages of the narrators, which I think added to the storyline.the accents were, by in large, very good.
No, I don't think the plot in strong enough for dramatisation.
The suspense generated in the novel was gripping and it really kept my attention, however I was continually waiting for the missing part of the puzzle which would make everything clear and make sense thus never came, and all the way through I just kept staying ' Really?' And 'as if anyone would believe that!'
"Venice really lived"
well written I liked the way it flips between characters and time to piece the story together. having visited Venice I was familiar with not knowing where you are and eventually ending up in familiar surroundings. Good use of voices to identify the characters.
One of the best ones.
The realisation of who the girl is.
The narrators brought the characters to life and meant i can "read" more books because i love to listen while I'm doing things.
Running away brings you to the same spot in a longer time.
I thought this book had more depth than was apparent by the publishers description.
