Reviews

It's an okay story

(3.5 stars)

I wouldn't call this one gripping. I felt sympathy for the main character but no deep connection. There is one obnoxiously difficult character who I wanted our heroine to look at in disbelief and say, " You are totally outrageous; go away!" Alas, she never even got close to that. The Librivox volunteer reader was good and unlike previous books she has read, I only caught one mispronunciation this time; yay for her improved skills :)

Good story

(3 stars)

I enjoyed the story itself but the reader was painful to listen to. Why do readerstry to articulate eveery word? It ends up sounding like a frightened child who has to read in front of the class, sounding out every word...I for got how in- ter-ested I al-ways was in li-ter-a-ture....just read however you naturally speak.

(4 stars)

The reader spoke English clearly. So a couple of words were mispronounced. This didn't interfere with understanding the story. This isn't a huge mystery as you figure out things along the way instead of having a big reveal at the end. The characters were interesting making this a nice listen.

Wonderful find of a story

(5 stars)

I usually pick a random word and search. I get to know new authors, story types and readers. This reader is known to me for quality. Flaming story of intrigue, romance, hate and love and religion. Listen to it if you dont believe me!

(5 stars)

Starts out a bit slow, but picks up steam and you don't want to put it down. Great characters and their stories intertwine creating many surprises. I definitely recommend. Good narration.

Wonderful

(5 stars)

Multiple plots written well provide suspense, mystery, and lovely relationships between some of the characters. I really enjoyed listening to this book. The reading and recording were well done.

OPPENHEIM'S BEST

(5 stars)

A compelling work with a loose, but reasonably satisfying ending. It was well read, and I presume that the reader is related to that resonance-voiced reader, Richard.

Melodramatic, But Well Performed

(2.5 stars)

I've only recently discovered E. Phillips Oppenheim. The plot here is convoluted and there's buckets of melodrama. But I liked the two independent female characters.
