Westerns aren't usually my genre, I'm generally a more of a sci-fi/fantasy reader. This was billed as a "weird" western so I took a chance and boy, did it pay off! I was completely absorbed by the story and the complex, enthralling characters. And I cannot say enough good things about the narrator, he was utterly perfect.

Barbara Rosenblatt's reading was the best part of this book. The story was well written and I loved the main characters. If I had read the book myself it would have been entertaining, but listening to the narrator's wonderful voice and her amazing repertoire of characters was terrific fun.

Fun love story

Competent writing, snappy dialogue, excellent world building. A sweet romance that I didn't have to feel embarrassed about if my family wandered in while it was playing.

Fascinating!

Paleontology sure has changed since I was learning about dinosaurs in grade school. This was a well-written and comprehensive yet very readable roundup of everything we've learned about dinosaurs and how we learned it.

Fun read!

Clever mystery, engaging heroine, good historical details. I'll certainly check out the 2nd in the series. The narrator was good at conveying a well-bred young lady.

Loved it

At this point in the series I adore Flavia de Luce so much that if the mystery consisted of discovering who stole the cheese from the larder I would still buy it and listen to it and love it. Happily it hasn't come to that. Alan Bradley writes a cracking good novel and Jayne Entwistle brings it beautifully to life. Between the two of them they have me laughing out loud one moment and in tears the next.

Well written and well-read

I wasn't sure at first what I was going to think of this book. It seemed that it was going to be silly, twee, and shaky on the historical details. But I eventually realised that for the most part the humor was subtle, the heroine delightful, and the mystery sufficiently twisty to keep me engaged to the last word. I just added the second book in the series to my reading list and look forward to it.

Very good story, very well read

I enjoyed this enough to wish I could read more about this world, these characters, and what happens next. I'll look for more by this author.

If Charlaine Harris wrote the directions on a bottle of shampoo I'd buy it and read it. She never disappoints. Gunny Rose is another in Harris' long line of wonderful and utterly unique female heros. Her vision of a shattered America feels frighteningly possible.

Great series, great narrator!

As much as I loved reading the Falco books, hearing Simon Prebble read them is even better.
