First ever narrated book

Normally I love to read books physically, I found this to be totally enjoyable in a gender I would normally give a miss. I have to honestly state I found the book totally engaging and in a way addictive. Once started it was difficult to stop.
I will now look to more of this type of book, in addition to my standard reading fare of thrillers and crime fiction, and so on. The book is certainly well written and narrated by Ian that I was hooked after the first minute.
Audible books was a trial for me, to see if I could actually cope just listening to the words being spoken, instead of having my nose in an actual book. Overall I am really happy that I did so, and have downloaded further books via the app to my smartphone, to continue this relaxing method of book reading.
Would I recommend this first book of the Tudor trilogy to others, certainly. It gives the reader the feel of being back in time, and observing the story being told.

Interesting Premise

Would you try another book written by Tony Riches or narrated by Ian Fisher?

Probably not ... the bare bones of the plot are historical and interesting, but the characterization wasn't entirely psychologically convincing. The characters were rather flat and therefore did not quite engage my emotions.


What could Tony Riches have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The characters needed to be rounder for my taste.


What about Ian Fisher’s performance did you like?

Pleasant to listen to his voice and there was also variety so that it was possible to distinguish the characters.


Did Owen inspire you to do anything?

Might be nice to do some historical reading to get a sense of which plot points are historical and which are conjecture,


Any additional comments?

If you are interested in learning about the beginnings of the Tudor dynasty, this novel gives a sense of what might have happened.
