Morven's narration is excellent. only disappointment is that book 2 is by an American narrator!

Beautifully written and read

Terrible narration destroys Mantel's Cromwell

Terrible narration. Amatuer hour radio drama stuff. Completely misses the thoughtful and analytical mind of Cromwell that Mantel has constructed. Makes most of the characters sound like strutting cockerals, instead of the political conivers that they were. I'm so disappointed. Please, Audible, don't let yourself down by not getting one of the earlier narrators to re'-record this epic tome to complete this epic trilogy. Such a missed opportunity to capture new customers looking for an accessible way to read a long but worthwhile book.

not quite up to the Slow Horses standard but a good story featuring some peripheral characters from the series.

A great way to digest recent Irish history and a masterful reading by Gerard. Love it.
