Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gabrielle | 7/31/2017

    " The horrors of the lives of the lower classes in England woven into a story of the transformation of a few from the higher classes who blindly cause their suffering. Brilliantly told story and exceptionally well researched to bring out the labyrinthine possibilities of the social circumstances without losing the reader in the maze of societal norms and expectations. Thoroughly enjoyed it! "

    " I read this book a few years ago, and thought Charlotte spent too much time telling others how to behave. I enjoyed it more the second time around. "

    " This was one of the better ones...I like Charlotte as she gets older and more concerned about the conditions of the poor in London. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tara | 1/12/2009

    " I keep reading this series, even though it isn't stellar. I like the main characters though. This one was fairly complex and detailed, and a bit bogged down because of it. The the denoument was about 2 pages long. The end. A bit disappointing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jen | 7/16/2008

    " Very much the Victorian mystery. I felt that a major part of the book was repetition but the ending was a surprise. Not who I expected at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dolly | 6/25/2008

    " Another Thomas Pitt mystery. Historical fiction with an enthralling mystery. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 6/2/2008

    " A good book but I thought the ending happened very fast and left a few loose ends. As always, there is further character development which for me is one of the reasons that I enjoy this series. The mysteries themselves are not the main focus rather the characters are. "
