The subject was very interesting to me and didn’t mind at all the poetic license taken by the writers to make it thrilling and dramatic. The reader was superb. His French pronunciation was very good as was his storytelling abilities. I was totally engaged from the beginning.
I wasn't wild about this book, but I enjoyed it. I was put off at first by the narrator's voice, but he grew on me, and actually he was quite good with women's voices, which isn't always the case. It had a lot of interesting history in it, and it led me to look into a few historical things that I wanted to know more about. I guess my criticism is that it edged toward melodrama; there's nothing subtle about the plot events. Also, I feel a scene at the end was missing -- especially given the melodramatic edge. But, I listened to the end, and I did enjoy it.
