What the Critics Say

"History is not just backdrop; invoked in key narrative threads, it keeps the plot taut and textured. Henley succeeds in creating an atmosphere of impending social cataclysm that enhances the lovers' sense of urgency and embeds their English-Scottish union in a more epochal context." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Loved It"

    I am about to finish this book and I am sad. I really like this one. My favorite thing is that it moves along quickly, doesn't drag out the story line and actually has a good plot. It is one of those really corny ones, where you know what is going to happen before it does. I will look for more from this author.Narrator was great.

    "Couldn't get enough"
    What made the experience of listening to Insatiable the most enjoyable?

    This book was a great trip through Elizabethan England/Scotland.It begins approximately 2 years before the death of Queen Elizabeth 1.

    The heroine Catherine (Cat) a Lady in waiting and dress designer to the Queen, and the hero - Patrick Hepburn son the exiled Scottish Earl of Bothwell ( who historically was a huge supporter of Mary Queen of Scots, King James' mother) They meet and initially hate each other , well, Catherine hates Hepburn. Hepburn is intrigued by the beautiful and vain Cat, but he doesn't go "ga ga" over her like everyone in the Queen's court.But Catherine can't help being draw to the 6 1/2 foot "Scots Barbarian" The story is long but it moves beautifully.

    I love the descriptions of the fashions and fabrics of the period, the landscapes, the food.
    It would make a great Movie!
    I love books you could see being made into a movie or mini series ( but only by the BBC)


    What did you like best about this story?

    The historical/political intrigue, the characters and the dialogue


    What about Jill Tanner’s performance did you like?

    I love the narrator, her voices, accents, and tone is fantastic.My favourite of all her characterizations is King James and Maggie ( Catherine's maid and surrogate mother)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The death of a secondary character in the middle of the book, she had an impact on everyone.


    Any additional comments?

    I purchased this book on a BOGO special, and it's the best deal EVER. It is worth the credit on its own.Enjoy!

    "Disappointing Ending"
    Would you listen to Insatiable again? Why?

    I enjoyed the story line of the book very much. It took me a couple of chapters to get used to Jill Tanners' narration style, something in the way she paused at the end of a sentence. I was a bit disappointed in the ending of the book. The last chapter seemed to be rushed to me like when a high school student realizes they have the required amount of words in a report and finishes hastily.


    What other book might you compare Insatiable to and why?

    This is only the second audio book I've listened to. I really don't have enough to compare it to but overall I did like the book very much.


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

    I loved the accents and different speech patterns of the different characters, made me feel almost as if I were watching a movie.

    "Story very good, narrator bad"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Insatiable to be better than the print version?

    NO! Because of the narrator I`d rather read it by myself


    What didn’t you like about Jill Tanner’s performance?

    she is boring, without passion, here performance was driving me sometimes mad!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Why Jill Tanner for a romance novell? Maybe she'll do better with an other genre
