VIPRESS SHE IS
I think I much prefered reading The Lady Viper as it allowed me to create my own characters just as I viewed them and I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Then I had the opportunity to listen to the book which, is not quite working for me.
This is a complex story about a woman living in a terrifing mans world of power, wonder and lust. She is treated by everyone more like a product of there foul ambition than a human being. She has to be all things to all people and she is not even the queen, just a Lady at Court fighting for her own position in the Tudor jungle.
I am sorry, but the Viper flits from one scene of lusting with her husband to lusting with what ever man is at her side, that nothing particularly stands out other than the start of fhe book at the Be Heading of Anne Boylen.
A Woman of Misery
I am only at chapter nine and I feel I am dragging myself up and down mount Everest, the story is lagging so much. I am bored of the repativeness of the story which I did not nituce when I read the book. The narrator is nothing outstanding but not too bad either, but the book needs to have it spoken with a little nore JutzPa ! I think this is an audible I will need to keep going back to once I have finished listening to something more enjoyable. I prefer reading the book myself.
