Story a little hard to follow at times, assumes that you have a prior understanding of Henry the 8th and the history of all that he did.
Would you listen to Shardlake: Dissolution again? Why?
Yes, especially if the rest of the series is made available as a BBC radio production. Having read the books and love them, I very much enjoyed a full cast production. Jason Watkins is terrific as Shardlake.
What other book might you compare Shardlake: Dissolution to and why?
The Shardlake series represent the closest I have come to finding books with all the elements i like to read. Quality writing, good mysteries, historical setting, and character development. And Sansom is a wonderful writer.
Which scene was your favorite?
The final act between Shardlake and the murderer. The dramatization was so well done, I might have been holding my breath while driving.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It's always when Shardlake gives readers a peek at his emotions, especially when talking about his disability and his love for others.
Any additional comments?
I hope there are more in this series to come! A great book with great narrators and production elevates every story.
I love C J Sansom's Shardlake series & have read all the books. I have been hoping that this BBC adaptation would be made available to buy, & well done to Audible for making it possible. Jason Watkins is brilliant as Shardlake as is the rest of the cast & none of the suspense or mystery of the story is lost. I look forward to listening to the BBC adaptation of next Shardlake story Dark Fire although sadly Jason Watkins doesn't play Shardkake in that one.
