Intriguing!

I found this book by following one of my favorite narrators, who did an awesome job interchanging her voice pitch along with various accents for this book. I would actually give this book a 4 1/2, only because as a Caribbean woman myself, I took slight offense to the seductive connotations placed on the main female characters. I was debating about getting this audiobook, I thought I would have been bored, or so appalled about the under aged relationship, but not that much to my surprise. The premise of the storyline is supposed to be fiction, yet it makes you wonder. There is also lots of informative non-fiction history as well. After I listened to the first part of the audiobook, it left me intrigued with Errol Flynn. I searched the internet to learn more about him. I remember dreaming about Flynn and the characters that night. I guess I also pitied Flynn for his deeds, in the book and in real life. I also wished the author give us more privy to the relationship between him and Ida.

In the middle of the audiobook, you begin to get a better feel of the main female characters and their relationship with others and their homeland Jamaica. This is where the storyline starts to revolve more around them. Also, I truly appreciate how the author wrote the story mainly in its timeline order, and not that back and forth jumping some authors do. In all, the entire story left me fulfilled, yet intriguingly haunted for some reason. I would love to sit down and chat with the author. Well done!
