A Superb Listen

You won't regret purchasing this title, the tale twists and turns and you may wish for an alternative ending, but it is riveting, a real roller coaster of emotions. Well researched and well narrated.

expected great things. Very dissapointed

I had heard a great deal about this book and I'm sure that reading it would have filled me with more joy than this audio book. The narration was dull and monotone allowing none of the rich description of London to come across in the narrative. I must confess that I tried several times to listen to this, on occasion rewinding to the beginning and starting again but in the end gave up.
