I bought this book to tide me over until my next credit became available. Knowing nothing about this author, I was delighted to discover what a wonderful writer she is (and a great narrator, too). In Rembrandt's Secret she masterfully weaves art history with current day intrigue. There were no weaknesses in storytelling that I could discern. It took me right to the end before I was able to unravel the mystery. As good a mystery thriller as Stig Larsen's books. Maybe better.
The story line was not bad, but the narration was very poor. She tried to change back and forth with voices based on characters, this was painful at times. That being said quite an interesting underlying story. I would not however recommend this book
Would you try another book written by Alex Connor or narrated by Alex Connor?
Has The Rembrandt Secret put you off other books in this genre?
It certainly hasn't inspiredmeto want to read any more.
What about Alex Connor’s performance did you like?
I thought she read the book well.
What character would you cut from The Rembrandt Secret?
I don't know if I'd've cut any.
Any additional comments?
There wasn't much I liked with this book. The violence and deaths, bad language, secrecy even till the end, all things I dislike. I don't like leaving books unfinished so I ploughed on through, a little at a time but though it was gripping, it wasn't enjoyable for me.
Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
perhalps, I found it a bit of a plod to get through, the plot was good but for me Itendedto daydream and have to replay to get the thread
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
Was The Rembrandt Secret worth the listening time?
probably I don't regret listening but it did not excite me
