thought provoking plot

Another gripping story from Dan Brown, fascinating concept.
As always, the twists and turns of the story keep you gripped from end to end. Lovely too that I've spent time in the locations

hard to sum up!

A difficult "read" I think you need more than a basic understanding of mathematical principles and logic to be able to fully comprehend the story. very heavy going in places, however the book does give an understanding of the genius of Alan Turing and the sadness of his demise.

the narration is clear and easy to understand, although I found the use of an American accent for all American characters unnecessary and a little patronising

Ever changing voices

Another fantastical story, book 5 in the series continues the wonderous saga.
Sadly after finally getting used to Roy Dotrice's many voices, he changes characters around which irritates and causes confusion, also he changes the pronunciation of some of the main characters names! overall I still enjoyed the book immensley, but the performance is definitely a distraction

An Epic Tale

I watched a couple of episodes on TV but gave up because I never had the time. This is a fantastical journey, I found Roy Dotrice voices quite distracting at first, although eventually I got used to him.
Enthralling story, better than TV as always

A wonderful and moving story

My favourite book by Jojo Moyes so far, and they've all been great, this one moved me to tears on many occasions. At first I found the different voices a distraction, but eventually I grew to love them too. I just couldn't stop listening, I think I will rewind and listen all over again, it's really that good !

A Great Sequel

The story continues with many twist and turns, a great listen.
Me Before You was a hard act to follow, but Jojo Moyes excels again in this moving and humorous continuation of Louisa's journey through life and the aftermath of Will's tragic death.

Rouse translation is hard going

I really struggled to get through this book, the rather flowery translation of the original Greek is distracting at times and since the repetition in the original is brought through to the final version it can be tedious at times too. I did find the second book an easier listen than the first, and although chronologically incorrect, I tgen found elements of the first that I revisited somewhat easier to deal with.

definitely not a book for a first timer into the Greek Classics

twists and turns to the very end

The final part, just as thrilling as the rest. An excellent and intriguing plot and a leader in Valentine that could make us all think. there could be a better way, I'm sad to reach the end of the series .
