liked the narration. the setting was wonderful. caught the claustraphobia and class conciousness of a small village well but reactions seemed a bit anachronistic compared with writers of the period. and in mysteries there are many. characters were fun but thin. would read more if there is a series to see how it develops.

im a sucker for a Brit accent. but he was droll and did well with all of the foreign names. the story was very entertaining and a good meditation on the difference between trying to do what is right and doing what is legal. Not to mention how politics and pessimism can ruin a perfectly good dinner. There is an element of Chauncey Gardner in Alan but he is both brighter and more proactive, which makes him more fun.

I really like the work of an hour later. At 1st it seemed odd to have a man telling the story. But obviously once I appreciated who the narrator was, it made more sense. He did a wonderful job with the Voices. I found the story interesting's. It was very well researched and the history of the courts and the roles that the women played were fascinating. On the other hand, of the plot was not as compelling as I would have hoped.

The author knows a lot about history and academia and, I think, owes a debt to Connie Willis. she also has a sense of humor and a narrator who stands in very well for the first person narrator in the book. Not compelling, in a compuldive page turning, stay up all night kind of way, but definitely good entertainment.

This book is by a psychologist who has a passion to understand the sociopath, how she or he presents to the world and the damage that can result. What is scary is how recognizable the sociopath is. Most of us have crossed paths (and, if we lucky, have only crossed paths with at least one). I won't say I enjoyed the book but it was fascinating and the narration was engaging.

it was funny and moving. as a mother of teenaged girls I could relate to it. the only odd part was the final interaction with Julie, but I won't give away the details. I recommend it.

The language and the performances were riveting. it was a book I was glad I listened to and one I wouldn't have discovered but for a daily deal. But the story itself was less satisfying. I didn't quite get the narrative arch.

I liked the story. informative and we'll written. it caught a moment in history. The narration was very hard to listen to, like a computerized robo-call voice. I finally sped up the narration so I could just get through it.
