Prepare to be confused
There are so many characters in this story that it's sometimes difficult to remember who's who. The loud piano music between sections is unnecessary (especially if you listen into the small hours and are just dozing off) although I can see why the producer thought it a nice added touch. It isn't.
Nathaniel Parker does a very good job of narrating the complex tale of betrayal, lost love and, ultimately, forgiveness but I think it's one of those books that is better read rather than listened to, even if only to flick back a few pages to check the plot.
Maybe I'll listen to it again in a while and see if it improves on second acquaintance......

Well Richard and Judy you got it wrong. A good story, but the author weaves such an elaborate web that half way through the point seems lost although it is gathered again at the end. A good idea but loses emphasis and focus. By all means draw a picture of interesting charactors and their lives, the key point being interesting.
