Over descriptive, plot takes forever to develop. Narrative very monotone and sleep inducing. Disappointing because I have enjoyed other books from this author. Could not finish because of the chopping and changing of the initial chapters.

Enjoyable listening

Lovely story well told, but would have been easier to understand change of time periods if the narrator had announced the year. I was a little confused at times whilst listening in working out the characters place in the story lines.

Boring.

I did not like this book. The plot was moronic and completely unbelievable. The narrator very monotone and inclined to induce sleep.

Too much conversations going round in circles. Plot takes forever to unravel. Story hard to follow because of too many changes. Not for me.

I found the narrator’s voice quite sleep inducing. The story line too slow to be of interest. This book was definitely not for me.

Lovely story to listen to. I binge listened. Sometimes the story line was a little rambling, but overall enjoyable.

Enjoyable.

Loved it. Recommended reading. Stephen Fry is a delight to listen to and of course the book explains all the gaps omitted from the movie.
