A fascinating insight into some the beliefs of a time long ago. And a grandmothers solution to alleviate a troubled child. But I felt that this lacked direction and desire. I believe that it’s a step down from burial rights. I won’t recommend this one, but I am still a Hannah Kent fan.

An amazingly told story of a family stepping into a different world they’d never see coming. I loved the narrator, despite changing characters her voice did not change, it was the words from the book who painted each of them as individuals. I cried, the youngest was my favourite. I didn’t know until that night. Encased in fascinating history, that changed so many of their ways. It will be one of those books that will stay with me forever.

Young adult category. Easy listen. There’s potential here for a great story. I feel that perhaps the narrator let the story down. Her voices did not differentiate between the characters well. At the end it says Niko as the person who is recollecting what is happening so she speaks mostly in Vedas voice!! And when words are pronounced incorrectly it takes you out of that world....However the depth of this tale is very shallow, I need more twists and turns, I want to feel more emotion!!! I also want to see my fictional surroundings better. Also describe your actions of characters with more than nod nod nod nod *really?? The setting is more primitive etc, so modern terms don’t fit well. I am thinking back now and I do not even remember the main characters features.. accept for Nikos dimple. I don’t know what they look like!? I felt a bit like its similar to a few other books but this was more like an overview of a greater story beneath. Finally when this book got an actual twist... it ended. So fingers crossed that Book 2 whips it all in to shape. All in all I think the narrator did influence my rating. I am still going to seek out book 2. Happy Listening! :) 📖🌞🌙

Really great twist of how these 3 characters come together. I enjoyed their own individual stories. I was grateful for the insight into Guatemala and Mexican culture. Something you never really hear about. Most of it being sad, horrific and traumatic. Thank you Isabel for bringing some their hardships to life! The only downside was the Narration I thought Richards voice was dreary and hard to listen too. My favourite voice was Evelyns. Just personal preference though! :)

Better than the first I felt. More thrilling this time. Although some little idiosyncrasies of Salander, were a little bit off. But overall I enjoyed it a lot. Just wished this movie had done it justice. That’s why we have books. Enjoy :)

Everything in life comes to me with ease, joy and glory. I honestly listened to this for maybe a day and half and ran the processes and still do. But within that short space of time... I have an abundance of money and more money on its way. I looked at why I wasn’t willing to receive money... energetically. And it’s now just everywhere. I am no millionaire, but what else it possible? ;) Happy Listening!

A delicious story full of ruffles,mystery, and love. But also the luxurious lifestyle that follows copper haired women and a kind hearted man. On the cusp of freedom; France is described in her sexual colourfulness and her full bodied sleekness. A delightful story of one of my favourite people, Dior.

Such a fantastic story! I really liked this one, it was different and full of suspense. In the end we still didn’t know what was going to happen. The house remains though, still lingering with mystery. -Z

Very Different. Heavy, explicit and at times frightening. But I liked it. It’s something I am not used to. I wouldn’t recommend rushing out and getting this book. But if you after a total change from the norm then give it a go.
