    "A Beautiful Journey"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I'd highly recommend this book to anyone who loves historical fiction. The author transports us to Renaissance Florence in such a way that it made me feel like I was actually there. The customs, ways of thinking, sights and smells of the time all come alive in this book.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It was hard to put the audio book down as each chapter added interest and sucked me in more and more. There is suspense and mystery - not the heart pumping kind, but very much the page turner kind! The plot and the way of telling the story is very original and unexpected. The story is told from varying points of view but still feels very linear.


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

    The narrator creates interesting voices for the different characters with easily distinguishable accents and intonations. His acting ability helps bring life and emotion to the characters. It was fun to hear all of the Italian names pronounced with a properly sounding Italian accent. It definitely added another dimension to the book to hear him read it.


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

    Yes! I was lucky enough to be stuck in traffic for a 3 hour car ride and got to hear the last 3 hours of the book entirely uninterrupted! It made the traffic actually seem fun!
