If you could sum up The Chessmen: The Lewis Trilogy in three words, what would they be?
I have only red 2 books in the trilogy because audible, inexplicably, only has 2 and 3 in English. The first book is only available if German (WTH?). That said, the 2 books I have read are utterly engaging and impossible to stop listening to. You will be okay not listening to the first book and diving right into book 2.
What did you like best about this story?
The mosaic of past and present coming together.
What does Peter Forbes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
EVERYTHING!!! You heart breaks right along with each and every character. A masterpiece.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
If you have known anyone with dementia, it will make you sad during those parts of the book.
Any additional comments?
WHERE IS BOOK NUMBER 1? Why do you only have it in German??

Chessmen was well worth the wait. Peter May writes so you feel like you are on the island and that you have known the characters all your life. He interweaves the childhoods of his characters with their "present day" adult lives allowing you to feel like these are people you grew up with. He is a fantastic story teller. The characters are flawed and yet likeable. Very worth the time to listen. I could not tun it off. Will listen to all three books again
