I didn't think I was going to like it. Because this author really slows down to describe every detail of everything. And her books are always inching toward someone's death. But despite myself I loved this book. I prefer it significantly to Hamnet. Both the book and the narrator were great.
Excellent book. Very entertaining.
Historical Fiction at it's finest!
Enjoyed the story. I enjoyed the way the author tied things together and was very descriptive. The book jumps around in the story and in a few places I felt it got a bit confusing but I stuck with it and eventually it all made sense. I also thought the plot was made clear early in the story so I was almost waiting for it to happen.
For me, it was difficult to follow because she jumped around too much. After I finished the book, I had to listen to a 15 minute YouTube summary to fully understand. Great plot though! If you like historical fiction, give it a try.
The audio equivalent of gazing at a portrait by Bronzino. Fantastic!!
