Outstanding information that everyone needs. I've listened to it twice, but can no longer tolerate the poor reading. I'm buying the paperback.
The problem is the narrator. He doesn't know how to pronounce words for heavens sake. WHY was he ever chosen to read? And what ever happened to editors? Did anyone listen to him read before they signed him up?
It's not just scientific words that he cannot pronounce. He puts the accent on the wrong syllable constantly.
Another example, devout and devote are not the same thing. Really annoying Audible, come on!

So pleased with this delightful book. I usually do not like authors reading their own books, but cannot imagine anyone else reading this one!

I enjoyed this book very much. His descriptions are brilliant. There were several laugh out loud moments in the book. This was the first book read by the author that I enjoyed. My experience has been huge disappointment with authors reading their own work. I cannot imagine enjoying his book as much as i did with any one else reading it.
I was also touched by his understanding and sweet characterization. A joy, thank you Graham Norton.

I liked the story very much. My problem was the narrator. When she was the voice of the sister Portia- Yikes!!! I had to turn the volume WAY down. Fingernails on a chalkboard.

I have read and or listened to Sherry Thomas’s books over and over. She is a remarkable researcher and to my joy one of the best writers today. What a mind !!! Her books are always an auto buy.

Any additional comments?

I think Julia London's earlier books were braver, more interesting, with characters that wern't so wishy washy

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I was unable to finish the book. The narrator's attempt at women's voices was a mess.

Which character – as performed by Simon Prebble – was your favorite?

A good story. Simon Prebble could read the phone book and I would be happy.
No lagging or looking to see how much time was left. Great entertainment.

I have a hard time believing that Elizabeth boil wrote this book.
Certainly not up to Elizabeth Boyle's standards and the narrator Susan Duerdan is very breathy and melodramatic I had difficulty finishing it and I'll make sure not to get her is a narrator in future books
