A great tale set on the Denniston Plateau

If you have ever been to this hard bleak plateau you can totally get this story.
It is cold isolated but covered in history in respect of the people who lived and worked there. Now a monument to those times.
However this story was destroyed by the narrator who clearly could not do accents but tried all the time mixing everything up making a mockery of the characters which distracted from the whole experience.
Please re record this book audible if I was the author I would cry.

Another absorbing if not obscure tale

I have always enjoyed this series with the variety of characters and the original tangents it goes in. Kobna is an fantastic narrator and he keeps you engaged throughout.
Perhaps now the series has reached its natural conclusion as its hard to think where else this story can go.

can't wait until Peter Jackson works his magic.

I listened to this book after hearing it's being turned into a movie. Not sure why I had missed it before. Wonderful imagination and pulled together with great characters. I look forward to listening to more in the series.

I left Heyer stories behind years ago but was attracted by the reviews around Armitage.
so a very light weight tale but brought alive by a great reader.
The characters each had a distinct voice and so many tones and accents underpinned by beautiful and engaging intonation. An enjoyable listen.

a tale that takes time to connect

This was a book club choice and if I had read this I would have given up in the first few chapters. however listening to it I kept going.
The narrator was fabulous even if the story wandered and parts were tedious. The general genre and story were fine it was the back and forth I found unhelpful.

keep listening

as the story advanced I had to check out the facts as it seemed so extraordinary .It was a great adventure with many fascinating details. As
always Follet embroils his view of how sexual activities play out amongst the key characters. This is unnecessary with a tale as good as this.

a great ending to the kingmaker series.
