I did not manage to finish this book. Too many wacky weirdo characters. Seemed to me that the author was trying to hard to make everybody eccentric and ridiculous. It just seem to be a bit exaggerated.

The fake accents were a real turn off and the stilted way in which the narrator spoke was a big distraction for me so that I did not even really manage to see what the story was about

A bit of a disconnected story

The characters all came together just before the end. I kept forgetting who was who during most of the book, as there were several different threads to follow.

I found the whole story very absorbing with very well developed characters. The story really took me into another world and I thoroughly enjoyed it until we got to the end. It was very abrupt and we don’t know what happened to the main characters that we were following all the way through the story.

Not one of her best

The story began well for me, but it then split into separate stories which to me did not hang well together. It tended to ramble in a rather fractured sort of manner and there were too many characters and sub plots to keep track of them all.

Nothing special

The book was well performed but the story was fairly mundane and a bit silly. It was okay for light entertainment but I would not highly recommend it.

I could not finish listening to this book as the performance was so appallingly done that it was just not worthwhile persevering with it. It was almost as if it was being read by a robot. A great pity as it could have been enjoyable if read by a more competent performer.

A wonderful story

It drew me in completely, taking me to another time and place. Love this book. Performance is outstanding.

I did not really enjoy the subject matter of the story which I thought was a bit grungy and thought the whole thing was improbable but the performance was outstanding

I did not enjoy this book as much as her previous ones. I felt that the story rambled too much and was just a bit too improbable.
