had great reviews but the narration grated on my nerves. might have been a better hard copy purchase. couldn't go past the first couple of chapters.

writing was way too simplistic

after struggling through the first few chapters i wondered if i had made a mistake and purchased a young adult genre book. it had so many good reviews but i just couldn't struggle through any longer. maybe it gets better further on but i won't be finding that out. worded in a very young simplistic style.

Couldn't finish this one

the writing was very simplistic with no depth. (could have been written by a 16 year old) Narration was terrible. Sounded like someone reading the news, couldn't make myself finish this book.

whilst the story was reasonably enjoyable (although as someone else commented parts could be taken straight out of a Stephen King novel) the narration by Andrew Scott was truly terrible with weird pauses and lots of mumbling. Some parts were hard to understand, it sounded like he was about to fall asleep. Wouldn't buy another book narrated by him.

one of the most annoying books I've forced myself to finish. repetitive babbling that just goes round and round in circles. main character was so constantly second third and fourth guessing herself that i felt like poking myself in the eye with a blunt pencil just to relieve the boredom.

best narration I've experienced. <br /><br />

after three years of listening to audible, Kate is by far the best narrator I've heard so far. it's a shame she hasn't worked on more books, fingers crossed we'll hear more of her work soon.

a huge amount of facts thrown together (with an overload of picodon information and unexplained french words) does not a story make. you do get a smile here or there but it's like listening to someone read from an encyclopedia of local french history and law. didn't like this one. I'll stick to Peter Mayle much more entertaining.

not a good one
