When it comes to this series of books I have enjoyed them all...this one also kept you wondering what was going to happen...it is nice to escape into the narrative...I would recommend this one if you are collecting this series...
I like Hugh Barringard as well as Cadfael...
easy to listen to...nice inflections when needed...
How does Hugh become Sheriff? Well here you go great stuff. Well worth more than one listen. I do not want to give it away, but Sister Magdalen is back proving that redemption can precede contrition.! As always a moral but still EXCITING story. Peters handles morality without being stuffy. If you are sick of smut but still want to be engaged give Cafael a try.
Another delightful Cadfael adventure, brilliantly rendered by Patrick Tull. Ellis Peters crafts her characters and stories beautifully. While she is clearly extremely knowledgeable about the period, she never shows off her knowledge, but brings in just as much as is needed for the story.
I know I can never go wrong when listening, or reading a Cadfael story. There is always something as you round the corners. And best of all, you never see it coming. Its human mystery at its best!
Like many others, I was introduced to Brother Cadfael through Masterpiece Mystery, and though it is hard to get the image of Derek Jacobi out of my mind when I am listening to these stories, Patrick Tull does an exceptional job narrating the story. For me, these stories are a nice blend of history and mystery. Who could ask for more?
Yes I would listen to it again, Ellis Peters is a very good writer of the mystery, I like her unhurried approach It is good the listen to while you work in the garden.
My commute is 2.5 hours daily so I love audio books. love brother cadfael too, but the reader COMPLETELY ruined this book. the "acting" of the story was so distracting I had to shut it off before I ran off the road with irritation. find the title but with a different narrator if you want to hear the story instead of the bad acting.
