The audiobook was great! It wasn't terrible but it wasn't amazing either. The plotline wasn't great either but the speaker was loud and clear which was good. Good speaker not so good plotline.
As a Spaniard I am not too familiar with the United States of America's less-known historical figures, but the summary reminded me of Jane Austen's books, so I decided to give it a try. I must say that I liked quite a lot Cassandra Campbell's performance and that the story was a lot of fun. I learnt a lot of history and I even decided to read more about the historical characters. To sum up, this was a very pleasant surprise and I would love to read the sequel as well.
I was just so disappointed by this book. Having extensively studied this topic, I was just expecting this book to be... more. But it was slow and dry and boring. The characters are completely different to how they were in history, which I think is the major tragedy of this book and the blatant manipulation of historical events was painful to read.
