Publisher's Summary

Critically acclaimed, best-selling novelist Bernard Cornwell takes listeners back to 1807 for an exciting tale of the Napoleonic Wars. Cornwell’s beloved hero, Richard Sharpe, is sent from England to Denmark on a secret mission. But as England and France fight over the powerful Danish fleet, Sharpe finds himself trapped in the war-torn city of Copenhagen.

    "Exciting Read"

    Second Sharpe book I have listened to. Sharpe is a unique protagonist both honorable and a opportunist rogue. Very entertaining kind of like an adult version of Jacky Faber. Will listen to all the books.

    "Good Story different ending"
    Would you try another book from Bernard Cornwell and/or Patrick Tull?

    I have listened to three of Bernard Cornwell books and I have liked them all. This story line I did not enjoy as much as the others. I will listen to more of the stories of "Sharpe". It is well written. Patrick Tull narrates very well.

    "Beloved series and character, well rendered"
    What made the experience of listening to Sharpe’s Prey the most enjoyable?

    Somehow missed this book when I read the series years ago. Great read and the narration was excellent. Not intellectual but great "mind candy"!

    Story
    "Not typical Sharpe adventure"
    If you could sum up Sharpe’s Prey in three words, what would they be?

    This book shows what a superb story teller that Cornwell has become. Not as much action because of the nature of the events described in the story as other Sharpe novels, the author fill out even more detail in the already rich and complex life of Richard Sharpe. You see both his gentle and aggressive side more clearly here, and how thse decisions will create the path that Sharpe has taken in the other stories. And of course the reader Patrick Tull has given another great performance. Highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "Worst of the Richard Sharpe Narrators"
    How could the performance have been better?

    I am not sure why Patrick Tull has been chosen to narrate. When he speaks for 30-year-old Sharpe it jolts the listener out of the story. He sounds like a dehydrated old man in a nursing home, missing his teeth. In addition, he mumbles at times so that I have to keep the sound very high to hear the story or swipe back 30 seconds to try to discern what Tull is saying. Tull is one of the worst narrators that I have heard.

    "Do not read this book if you're new to the series"

    I cannot say whether this is a good or poor book. I am new to the MAster and Commander series, and sought some advice from another reviewer who said this was a fine place to enter. I found it difficult to get attached to the story, and gave up on it. It is not for a newbie.

    "Difficult British accent"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Get an American English reader.


    What could Bernard Cornwell have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Content was good.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Patrick Tull’s performances?

    No.


    What character would you cut from Sharpe’s Prey?

    N/A


    Any additional comments?

    I am from the US and I am touring Scandinavia. I wanted to learn more about the culture so I bought this audiobook to listen to in the car. Other reviews expressed the description on Copenhagen was excellent. We didn't get past the 45 minute point so I can't comment.
