I have read all the books in this series and this is the only one to disappoint me.
I have never been crazy about Toren's narration but I let that go to enjoy the story.
I could not get past it this time and I am sorry to say I should have read it...not listened to it.

The overall message was an important one and much appreciated by this listener.
I also bought the book to read it...and I preferred that version. I found the audible version protracted, the music distracting and I think the readers chosen were not the best. I am certain I would have preferred one great reader like Barbara Caruso for the whole book. Still it was an important book and it should stay on the best sellar lists for a long time.

standard Audrey Howard
Carole byd who reads this one is fabulous!!! The story itself is over long but I loved it...mostly because Boyd makes each character an individual voice and holds my attention as if it were a play at the West end in London.

Long book tells little
I will not read this one again because it was to long, too descriptive and too detailed for my taste. Story could have been 4 hours shorter by my standard. BUT, I do love British novels so I am glad I read it once.

very slow starter
not the best british narrator I have heard. Story grows on one as the 2nd part begins. gives a reliable portrait of british village problems to this day
