Really poor narration and unbelievable story

The narrator was awful, with poor intonation and everyone sounds like a bumpkin. The story was also frustrating as it didn’t hang together well with massive leaps of logic, poorly drawn characters who are unbelievable and cartoonish, and improbable story line. There is nothing ‘cozy’ about this story just annoying, the author swings from poetic imagery that doesn’t fit the style of story but would fit a Magnus opus and makes the story clunky to cliches that are like nails down a blackboard.

I don’t normally leave reviews but felt I had to mainly because I was really distressed at the description of the taxidermy and the violence of the murders and wish I’d known as I wouldn’t have bought the book. This compounded with the fact it wasn’t a great story even giving it plenty of time to get going and the narrator being awful at doing characters voices I’m afraid I can’t recommend it despite liking other of Kate Mosse’s books.

classic that is wonderful to listen to

quite a big read so fantastic to have read to you, especially as the language can be quite dense, a classic that everyone should have on their to read list.
