Beautifully read, most enjoyable.
I bought this because of previous reviewer's recommendations. I was not previously a fan of this Author but the recommendations were completely correct. I stayed up far too late listening to it, the story is fascinating and I was with poor Danny Cartwright all the way, desperate to see how it all turns out. The characters are mostly very credible - the goodies are very likeable and the baddies are very bad. A marvellous piece of entertainment excellently narrated, all of the voices were quite distinguishable and yet credible. I will be looking for more books read by this narrator.
"A really enjoyable listen"
Martin Jarvis does the Tale of Two Cities brilliantly. I never thought I'd find Dickens so compulsive and I've listened to this more than once. Highly recommended. If you don't think you are a Dickens fan - try this!
"Super reading and a great story - recommended."
This is really well read by Stephen Hodson, a really good story with an interesting twist at the end. For once DI Diamond finds himself a suspect in the murder case and needs to do some private sleuthing. Set in Bath and Bristol so I found it particularly enjoyable.
A wonderfully read version, atmospheric as ever and the narrator really brings Joss Merlin to life as a frightening character and there is a lovely variety between the voices used. I have only given this 4 stars however because the female voices were not so good, although acceptable. The story itself surely needs no explanation!
"A great book ruined!"
I adored reading this book and thought I'd adore listening to it again. But the footnotes drive you mad and completely disturb the flow. Somehow it didn't work for me, but read the book if you can it is a fascinating story.
This is delightfully narrated by Philip Pullman and the additional voices just add to the tension and atmosphere. I did feel the choice of voice for Lyra a bit grating and sometimes persistently louder than the others but despite this I just had to rush straight to my PC to buy and download the Subtle Knife as soon as it had finished.
Beware - this series is addictive! - a sort of cross between Harry Potter and H.G Wells.
This is a lovely story beautifully read. Its quite complex and moving with a delightfully rich combination of characters and full of twists and turns. I wouldn't call it a thriller, more of an intriguing mystery spanning from the activities of the French resistance to the present day and the resulting effects for three families. This is so much more than an account of a war crimes trial. Father Anselm is a warm character that I quickly grew to like and I'm pleased to see that he features in the next William Brodrick book which is now on my wishlist. I've listened to The Sixth Lamentation once and am listening again to pick up on a few nuances I missed first time round. Highly recommended.
Another intriguing story of mystery from Robert Goddard. A sensitive tale delightfully read by Tony Britton, thoroughly recommended.
