Where does Lamentation rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I am such a fan of CJ Sansom that he can do no wrong. The reader is just superb, I rate this book up in my top five, and will re listen to it of that there is no doubt
What other book might you compare Lamentation to, and why?
I suppose it would compare to either P Gegory or A. Weir both write about Tudor times and both are very good. Lots of historical content written within a really good story
Which character – as performed by Steven Crossley – was your favourite?
Barak, but I have to say that all the characters are so different and the voices he gives are so fitting to the character.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Love Tudor history and a good story this is for you
Any additional comments?
I cannot wait for another CJ Sansom book Lamentation ended with Shardlake being taken on by Elizabeth before she becomes queen I so hope that it is the start of a new era with Shardlake. I hope Barak re joins him together with Nicholas

Would you listen to Lamentation again? Why?
Probably not. For me, Steven Crossley just does't get the tone right for the story right and and has massacred the voices of Barrak and Guy Morton. His reading and the voices he gives to the character distract from the story itself.
What did you like best about this story?
A good story with some twists and turn. As ever Master Shadlake is up against the establishment and usual Barrack gets more involved than is good for him. And some new characters come into Shardlake's world and surprisingly some of the former old retainers depart.
How could the performance have been better?
If Anton Lesser had been allowed to continue narrating the Shardlake chronicles. BRING BACK ANTON LESSER - THE TRUE VOICE OF Sharlake and his friends.
