    "Narrator spoils the characters"

    I know it's subjective but the way the narrator portrays the characters is far from the descriptions in the text. For example Brother Michael is described as having an appreciation of the ladies and to be able to hold his own in a fight but he is given a totally contrary voice.

    "Fantastic narration"
    Where does A Bone of Contention rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have previoulsy read these books and audio gives me an added pleasure


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Matthew Bartholomew. He is the main character who explains the often convoluted story line very clearly.


    Have you listened to any of David Thorpe’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes. David Thorpe is brilliant in bringing these medieval characters to life. His regional accents add humour and pathos to them. His narration is superb.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It involved me intellectually and made me smile.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this series.

    "Brilliant"

    This was my first listen to Susannah Gregory, and I'm pleased to note there are many more on audible. Brilliantly read, and a darned good yarn.
