    Interesting book. Narration seemed like a computer was reading Most of the time

  • MaryLou C

    Narration was awful. Book itself was good, but her voice was so monotone, it could put you to sleep.

  • Cynthia G

    The book was very good.

  • Philippa Winsnes

    I have to say that I thought the book was very good. There were some neat plot twists, although it would have been better if the end were even possible to have figured out on my own. There is no way a person could have solved the murder - no real clues to follow a trail. The period it was written about is well represented - interesting mannerisms, social norms, and phrases. The narrator was mediocre. Sorry, but a bit too monotone. At times this was calming and fit the ambiance and at times it was far too slow.

  • Sherri Harvey

    Story was pretty cool but the narration bored me half to death. I had to switch off and get a new book.

  • Bill Meadows

    Worst narration ever. I had to turn it off after 10 minutes . Do not buy this book!

  • Donna Pinkston

    Very good listen Hard to understand the reader but it could be my device

  • Maureen Kubasak

    A very interesting mystery with many twists and turns. A great description of life in the those times.

    I enjoyed this book very much. It was interesting to hear and listen to a book from a very different time period. The narration was very appropriate for the time the book was written. The plot was well-crafted and intricately descriptive. I can see that it would not be for everyone's taste, but was historically a great example of the pace of life in the 1800's. The language was beautiful, cultured, and created lovely pictures I my head of the characters in the book. I greatly enjoyed this journey into the crime novels of the past.

    Reader is terrible but book is good if you can stand the narration.
