Not as absorbing as the summary would suggest

Each story could be shorter and snappier

Would you recommend The Sacred Stone to your friends? Why or why not?

Not compared to all the great books available on Audible

Have you listened to any of Paul Matthews’s other performances? How does this one compare?


Did The Sacred Stone inspire you to do anything?


Any additional comments?

There was a predictability about all the stories, and a lack of pace in the action which means that it somehow fails to really catch the imagination.

a series of parts

I purchased this because of enjoying the Shardlake stories by CJ Sanson. I found this more a collection of short stories along a single theme and time line and as a result enjoyed some parts more than others as I could reasonably expected given the different styles present. I could have though didn’t skipped a part I didn’t enjoy as the separate stories stand well alone. Overall if you like historic mystery you will enjoy this though some parts more than others.
