Would you listen to Bristol House again? Why?
Absolutely! Catholics, Jews, Bletchley, Cryptography, King Henry the 8th, Nazis, Cromwell, Templar Treasures, Ghosts, Israeli Politics, Love Stories and Red Heels? Talk about a very full story line. Something for everyone here. I fell in love with this book and have listened to multiple chapters over again.
What other book might you compare Bristol House to and why?
This has coded spy moments worthy of Robert Littell's the Amateur, Ancient religious cymbal-ism worthy of the Davinci Code and Kristen Sieh doing multiple accents beautifully like Glittering Court. Very impressive.
Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Kristen Sieh is probably my favorite narrator. She is excellent in everything. I love her accents.
What disappointed you about Bristol House?
I never quite connected with the female Indiana Jones/Robert Langdon/Benjamin Franklin Glass character who didn't have the background of those three. Even so, she still managed to figure out all the unbelievably impossible clues, including how to decode "aaaaaa..." using Hebrew, English, left to right, no right to left, every 5th word, leave out the vowels, etc. but never figured out why she was picked for such a mission.Don't worry about the plot. You'll never figure out who is doing what and why. It's all revealed in the last chapter anyway.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Islands of Profit in a Sea of Red Ink
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
Decent reading of the characters.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I was disappointed in the story. I loved City of Dreams (the book not the audio book). Maybe too much pressure to crank out a book every year or so to write another City of Dreams?
