If you could sum up A Summer of Discontent in three words, what would they be?
Historical + detective = interesting
What did you like best about this story?
The mystery, although slightly predictable, was nevertheless interesting, in some places amusing and the interplay between the two main characters had depth. I feel as if the author has finally got into her stride and, having already listened to the newly published books, this is the first book I can say I thoroughly enjoyed all the way through.
What about David Thorpe’s performance did you like?
Thorpe does a pretty good job of Bartholomew but has a strange interpretation of some of the other characters, especially female voices and one of the monks who is small in the previous book. Nevertheless, in A Summer of Discontent this is one of Thorpe's better performances.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Not a comedy but there were moments between Bartholomew and Michael that did make me laugh, other than that it was an interesting read/listen.
Any additional comments?
If you have found the earlier books hard to get through then start with this one as both the books and the narrator get significantly better from here on in.

I really like this series and while admittedly they can be a bit long winded they are well written. some are not as good as others but that is so very subjective but what is undeniable is that the narrator is brilliant so much so i have brought other books simply because he is narrating. would definitely advice reading in order.
