What the Critics Say

"If one could travel in time to 12th-century England to meet Brother Cadfael, this reviewer would expect him to sound just like Patrick Tull." (Library Journal)

    Story
    "Exciting medieval drama"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Hermit of Eyton Forest to be better than the print version?

    Not quite. The narrator is good but at times his change of voice tone to suit the character falls a bit short and at times can be a little irritating. There are some minor faults with the immersion reading voice over. The cursor seems to stick and sometimes for a paragraph or two stops following the voice.


    What other book might you compare The Hermit of Eyton Forest to and why?

    N/A


    What does Patrick Tull bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He certainly does bring the book to life and makes one want to hear more. Ellis Peters can be a bit drawn out at times, which by the way does add to the tension, and Patrick Hull helps keep one's attention on the written word. is reading of the tales is even steps ahead of the CVD film versions (NOTE this book is not one of those on DVD)


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I';d love to as I loath having to put it down before the end to do some rather essential things, like sleeping! Certainly if it were not so long would like to finish it in one sitting. l The tension created by both writer and reader definitely makes the listener/reader want to "turn" the pages.


    Any additional comments?

    A wonderful book that I could certainly read again and then with more attention to the beauty of the scene, time and characters rather than just the plot.

    "A bit too erratic"

    An excellent story as always but a little bit hard to follow in audiobook form. Nevertheless, most enjoyable and a favored title in my library.
