Reviews

Interesting & Enjoyable

(4.5 stars)

It took me a few chapters to get into it, but then it took off and I didn't want to even take a break. I love listening to Elizabeth Klett, She really gets me engaged in any character she's reading. Very well done!

Terribly Engrossing

(5 stars)

Love the reader and the story... new to this writer, but I thoroughly enjoy him. This story caught me off guard- did not even suspect the twist at the end!

Whoa!

(5 stars)

This story's ending came totally out of left field. I was floored. The summary covers the plot. Reader was excellent, and the story was a neat twister. Enjoy!

great story

(5 stars)

as always I loved the reader's performance. good book exciting story. I could see this scaring the pants of readers UN the last century! :-)

Fun read!

(5 stars)

The story is engrossing and I was just as surprised as the narrator was at the way it turned out!

Slow narrative, good story

(3 stars)

Without placing any blame on Elizabeth Klett, whose work I truly love, this story proceeds quite slowly at the beginning. It of course gives the listener clues towards the final result of the tale, but in the meantime they made me lose focus. Overall a good story, though I wouldn't revisit it.

fantastic story!

(5 stars)

the story was very entertaining. Ms. Klett did a fantastic job as always, although it took me a few minutes to get used to her narrating a male character. I have been spoiled by her and Karen Savage and now I have a difficult time enjoying other readers

Good book

(5 stars)

I liked the story although it was somewhat predictable for a 21st century listener. Elizabeth I left is an excellent voice artist and I loved the fact that she read with a very good English accent
