The history, the richly described locations ,and the performance all were greatly appreciated.
The relatively predictable plot line, some of the characters were just brushstrokes, and the incessant references to going for coffee. My gawd, these people do nothing but drink coffee .
My first foray into James Becker, and not bad. Certainly has the content I appreciate, but the stories do have a formula to them. On balance, if you like these sorts of historical/bibilcal thrillers, I would recommend.
His accents and inflections are genuine, and he does paint a wonderful wordpicture.
It would be on the SyFy channel, and no one of note.
Not bad. Not brilliant, but a good distraction. Recommended.
This is the first Becker novel I have read. It won't be the last.
I do like historical fiction, the blending of fact and make believe, the story within the story snd Becker does it quite well.
Graeme has the voice that is easy to listen to, believable even when trying to portray a woman's voice.
I really enjoyed this novel, and so will you!
