Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Naomi | 2/14/2014

    " DdM's book's just keep getting better and better..each book with its' own personality. The King's General was no different! A totally different style than the last 5 books I have read of hers, but, none the less written with quality. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debby | 2/10/2014

    " Another great book by du Maurier. This is historical fiction, which is one of my favorite genres, and it has piqued my interest in the English civil war. I'll be doing some research on that. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anne | 1/27/2014

    " Pretty good, but nowhere near as good as Rebecca by the same author. I would definitely recommend that one. Reading this one just makes me want to re-read Rebecca. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabriella | 1/18/2014

    " After getting off to (what I thought was a ) slow start, it became quite good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurence | 1/14/2014

    " Great story, great characters. No perfection, just human beings confronted with history. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rae | 1/9/2014

    " Set in Cornwall during the parliamentary wars, this story is told in the first person by Honor Harris, a beautiful woman crippled for life in an accident. The hero is Sir Richard Grenville. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Diane | 12/22/2013

    " I read this many many years ago and love it. Time to read it again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Esther | 12/3/2013

    " I just happened to pick this up when I was staying at someones house in Kentucky. It was an easy read and I had heard a lot about Daphne du Maurier in the past so was quite curious. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 K.M. Weiland | 5/20/2013

    " Rich, fascinating, swashbuckling look at the English Civil War. This is the best of du Maurier's I've read so far. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Catherine | 12/17/2012

    " Most of the characters are quite unlikeable, but I suppose that is their purpose. I found this to be a fascinating tale and enjoyed that it is based on true events, but it did leave me sighing in despair at the end! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaclyn Reding | 9/2/2012

    " excellent historical novel with fantastic characterization. Fiction writing at its very best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tracey Chorley | 8/20/2012

    " This is the first du Maurier I read, so it will always hold a special place for me. If you've not read it I urge you to, it's atmospheric to the point that I obsessed about it when I wasn't reading it. Captivated me from page 1. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jose | 7/21/2012

    " Enduring love, the atrocities of war and how wrong it is. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chelsea | 11/26/2011

    " Really excellent. I love how Daphne du Maurier really brings history to life. Before reading this, the English Civil War had just been some bare facts and dates that I had to study in history class. This book made that time period really breathe and bleed! Now I want to re-read Rebecca! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue Cook | 10/22/2011

    " I realised that I'd read this book when I was much younger. Read it again anyway and really enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jorrie Spencer | 8/3/2011

    " This was great for historical detail, taking place during the English Civil War. The characters weren't terribly likable, not that they were supposed to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Johanna | 5/22/2011

    " I don't know what else to say other then that I really enjoyed it. Rebecca was so oppressive she became a character in her own right. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarah | 5/21/2011

    " All the characters keep me guessing of what is going to happen next and what secrets are being kept. If you have read don't tell me the ending I am still reading it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ashley | 5/20/2011

    " a very good book, not a romantic like you would think. its about murder and mystery. it my be a challenge book but next to Frankenstein its one of my favorites yet. i recommend it to anyone with a want to read. Its a great book, glad i read it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Naomi | 5/19/2011

    " I got the twist, but not too early. Not a bad mystery at all except for wanting to punch nameless heroin for being such a helpless sooky lala throughout most of the book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claudia | 5/18/2011

    " I always have a hard time enjoying a book when I don't like the main character, and that was the case with this one. I did like the mystery enough to keep reading, and the story did have some genuine surprises, but I was just so frustrated with the narrator. BTW, why doesn't she have a name? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christie | 5/15/2011

    " I adore this book. I'm not sure I'd teach it to freshmen again (especially not non-English major freshmen) because of its emphasis on language rather than plot and characterization, but I do adore it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christina | 5/15/2011

    " Romantic suspense...just finished Jane Eyre before reading this book and couldn't help seeing so many parallels to it. Thought the book was ok but wouldn't recommend it strongly unless you really really enjoy romance with a lingering sense of dread and a slowly unfolding storyline. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Denice | 5/15/2011

    " One of my most favorite books - EVER! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alix | 5/14/2011

    " I almost died reading this book, pure agony. This is not a classic that should be considered a classic. Pure dullness, it took me forever to finish it. :/ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anne | 5/14/2011

    " Mmmm lots of buttered crumpets! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 5/14/2011

    " The sense of supernatural paranoia is so evocative as to be almost frightening. Nearly everyone who has loved understands the mysterious hold the dreaded Ex can have over us.

    The ending is something else.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rayna | 5/14/2011

    " Thank you Mrs. Echevarria freshman English @ Fontbonne Academy for having us read this. AWESOME! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Verena | 5/14/2011

    " I listened to this as an audiobook from Audible. It took me a long time to get into it - the start was quite slow - but I really enjoyed the story once they returned to Manderley. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Margaret | 5/13/2011

    " I loved this book in 9th/10th grade, and used the opening scene as a monologue for a speech competition. "
