"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)
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
The story line
Spoiler alert - Finding the Hermit dead.
Love the ability he has to guide you seamlessly through the characters
