I will never look at Covent Garden in the same light again!! Audible please release more of this series. Deserves to be a classic . Very well read. Am now hooked on this author.
"11.22.63 Stephen King..Reigns supreme!!"
Stephen King surpasses himself with this latest novel.The writing is crafted beautifully and grips the listner from the opening lines. I lived(and loved) every moment of the book so good was the narration by Craig Wasson. Fans of the JFK saga and 60's America will love it. The canvas and spirit of the age is evocative, and for those who lived through it ,nostalgic.
It's crying out to translate to the silver screen.
This deserves its place on the best seller list hands down. It is so well written with great character development.The narration by Anna Bentinck further enhances the experience. This is a must listen for all Audible fans.Forget the movie and listen to the book!!
"Best listen in a long time"
From the moment I started to listen to this book I was captivated. It was my first time listening to any book by R J Ellory.It is an emotionally draining but rewarding book and excellently narrated.It very much surprised me to later discover that the author is not American, as I had imagined, so brillantly does he write of Georgia in the US.I was so taken with the book that I emailed the author directly and to my surprise had a reply by return!!! Would recommend this book highly.
I was very disappointed with the narrator Leelee Sobieski. Her English pronunciation at times was curious. Her French pronunciation on the other hand was good.Her dramatic style at times was irritating and her attempt at characterisation was feeble. Overall her narration distracted from the story and in another narrators hands I would not have struggled to finish the book.
As with all of Tracy Chevalier books this is very well written. The reading by Cornelius Garrett really captures the mood of London at the time. An excellent book.
"Excellent story line but........"
Excellent story line but let down by third rate dramatisation accents.The narrator was more than capable and dramatisation was unnecessary.
However I learned to live with the deficiencies and recommend the book wholeheartedly.
