Crosseyed with boredom ...

... but I made it to the 6th chapter before I gave up. I don't often review publications unless I am really enthusiastic about the story. Even less often do I give a negative review because I can usually find something redeeming in the writing. However, I found this tale so dry; the characters stilted, snobbish, spoiled and unlikable. I found the class consciousness so distasteful as well as the fact that none of the characters contributed anything worthwhile outside of their insularity. Maybe it improved with further listening but I really couldn't invest in it. I even found the narration irritating.

A good historical novel.

The book was a little hard to follow at first. Mainly because I was struggling with the narrator. The story became very interesting after I got into it and I got used to the narrator. I had been listening to a few other superb narrators so I had to adjust. This is a historical novel which I always enjoy.

Wonderful historic love story.

Enjoyed this story from the first to the last page, and WOW!! The narrator was one of the best I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.

Long and Rambling

This book had potential but i was unable to get use to the readers voice. The book seemed to ramble on too much filler.
