    "Exciting and deeply moving"
    Would you listen to The Leper of St. Giles again? Why?

    I will listen again, but not for a while. This is not a an upbeat story, it's an excellent story, but parts of it are very sad. I don't put myself through that all that often.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    That would spoil it for future readers! All I can say is that I would change the end.


    Have you listened to any of Patrick Tull???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Oh, yes, several others. He's an excellent reader/actor.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Can't think of a thing.

    "Great story - well read"

    A good yarn that kept me interested throughout. At first I thought the narration was a bit slow, but after a while, I really liked it. The narrator does a great job of conveying the feeling of the novel.

    I've enjoyed several Br. Cadfael books. Strongly recommended.

    "Hiding in Plain Sight"
    What did you love best about The Leper of St. Giles?

    The story is a combination of interweaving themes of love, intrigue, adventure and compassion. The development of the story is told from various main character's points of view.


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

    I had a hard time putting it down.
