Step into history...

This is wonderful!! I'll be honest I bought this purely based upon the fact that the audio version is read by the delectable Tom Hiddleston and boy does he make it entertaining! His wonderful and varied accents breathe such life into the characters.
The story itself is beautifully written, not knowing a great deal about the French revolution myself, Sally Gardner lets you almost taste history with her wonderful descriptions and colourful cast of characters.
I have such fondness for Yann and Sido and their respective path in and out of each other’s lives. Tetu is the kind of guardian you could almost wish for and both the marquis and dastardly Kalliovski are interesting and scary in different ways.

Truly seductive narrator

I really enjoyed this book, it was well written and kept me in suspense but the credit is largly down to Mr Hidleston's voice. I was hooked from the moment he read the title and like the reviewer before said it is a shame there is not more on her read by him.
