What disappointed you about A Manuscript of Ashes?
Very difficulty to understand the reader. With his accent, it was impossible to distinguish names and you lost the thread of the story and which character was being discussed.
What do you think your next listen will be?
A Nora Roberts novel.
Would you be willing to try another one of David DeSantos’s performances?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from A Manuscript of Ashes?
Since I was unable to finish it, even though I listened to the first 10 chapters more than three times, I can not answer that question.
Any additional comments?
I would love to know what the story was about.

The narration of this book is good but it requires a few 're-takes' at first until one becomes accustomed to the longer sentences that are beautifully constructed.
I want to read this book in print now to really savour it but the audiobook is a great way to capture the characterisations which are very good.
The writer switches between viewpoints of different characters and different points in time so that we get a shifting perspective and a really facinating story about an interesting time in history and literature.
Definitely one I will re-read and highly recommended.

Simple story line. Although the twist made it interesting , the climax seem to never arrive. I found the sentences possibly unnecessarily too long to follow as an audible book.
