Thought Provoking

Where does The Mistletoe Bride and Other Haunting Tales rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Very highly and I will definitely listen again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Maybe the Mistletoe Bride, but really my favourite was the Kate Mosse herself. I was extremely interested in listening to the author's notes.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I wouldn't say an extreme reaction but most of the stories evoked emotions within me.

Any additional comments?

I loved the author's belief in the importance of history as told through the lives of everyday people, rather than solely political or royal figures.

Atmospheric

If you could sum up The Mistletoe Bride and Other Haunting Tales in three words, what would they be?

superb gothic stories

Who was your favorite character and why?

Every story had a character you wanted to know about. Some genuinely moving stories. I enjoyed Kate Mosse 's personal insights.

What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Sian Thomas has a gorgeous voice, nothing overdone just gorgeous

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I enjoyed the atmosphere that the music brought to bring it together.

Any additional comments?

This is a perfect winter listen, I shall listen to it many times.

Mystical, atmospheric, perfect for Christmas...

...but ..... I've removed one star for the author's notes delivered after each story, which more than slightly spoiled the atmosphere created by each of these very well written and well delivered stories. If there was any way these could be optional, e.g. together as a chapter at the beginning or right at the end?
