Exceptional story of incredibly tragic but uplifting struggle for survival of the oppressed classes contrasted with the bourgeoisie. Very well read

Very Pleasant

This is an easy listen for unwinding to, it isn't demanding and will probably be forgotten by next week. The narrator wasn't to my taste but not bad

I had listened to one of the series previously because it was a special offer and thought it was ok but you really need to start with this one to appreciate the personal relationships and the premise of the series. Glad I went back to the beginning

I don't like to give poor reviews but to read this you need to be the sort of person who believes that; 1 , someone who doesn't know the difference between delphinium and ragwort can get a job as a professional gardener and 2, someone who has never read a book can become an author.
Badly written and badly read. A waste of a credit

Loveable characters

I don't often resort to " chick lit" but in the depths of covid lockdown my spirits needed a lift and this was the perfect choice. Just took my mind off all the bleak news

I laboured through 3 hours of this waiting for it to capture me but I'm giving up . At first I thought that the reader's voice was good but even that became cloying after a while

Very Thorough

A very well researched in depth history. Superbly narrated as one would expect of David Rintoul

Keeps you guessing to the end. Much better than I had hoped. In general I really liked the narrator apart from a few howlers of mispronunciation

Good Story

but why does the narrator make all the male detectives sound like simpletons, other than that she has a pleasing voice
