I found this book very difficult. At the start I was confused as to where the book was actually set and confess that I had to start it at least three times and came very close to putting it aside as a mistake. I preservered and finished the book, however all I can say is that I am so pleased I only bought the short version. The book was disjointed and not very well done and some parts were just plain ridiculous. The hours of my life I will never have back again so be warned. I wasn't going to mention the speaker but as one of your editors at an interview at the end of Prisoner of Birth stated how important the speaker was I felt only fair to put the other side across. The speaker was woeful and certainly didn't help with an already difficult task. I couldn't figure out from her accent where the book was supposed to be set and some her accents very just awful. Maybe a good book spoilt by a bad speaker but I don't believe so but she certainly didn't help.
