Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey Lynn | 2/20/2014

    " A well written mystery. Very interesting details on Tudor era thoughts on and care of people with mental issues and on serial killers. Kind of grim but well plotted and paced with familiar characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fionnuala | 2/19/2014

    " atmospheric as always with Sansom, but this time I felt some themes and plot lines(the theological/historical context, Barak's marriage) were rather clumsily handled. Plus I guessed the villain almost from first appearance, which always disappoints me! Good pace, though, and the central character of Shardlake gets more and more interesting as the books progress. One of the best historical detective series around. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marilyn | 2/17/2014

    " OK, I am completely addicted. I cannot stop reading these clever mysteries even though I'm not a great fan of historical fiction. But, these are so very well crafted and complete page turners. The voice of the lawyer, Shardlake, is so even between novels that the next one begins smoothly as if the first had never ended. They are well crafted and excellent reads. Sansom has an expert ability to weave a tale through very complicated settings and keep it clear while explaining the politics of the time. This is my favorite to date. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 2/11/2014

    " I liked reading this book, but I felt it could have been better somehow. That's how I have felt all along in this series. The books have been good, especially the vivid pictures that Sansom paints of Tudor London and the people that live there. However, I have felt there is something missing. The only book of the series that felt whole was Dark Fire. Revelation was missing something too. I felt it a bit drawn out. The murderer isn't really revealed until the end. There wasn't enough tension in the chase. No one seems to guess and there wasn't enough clues in the story to help us guess (though I had a hunch as to who it was half way through the book, it's just that no one else did). The book may have done better by being a bit shorter. I read through my review and wonder why I am so harsh on the book. I did enjoy reading it. I think I'm just disappointed that it wasn't better. I think Sansom can write better and maybe I expect more from him. I will continue reading the series though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cynthia | 2/4/2014

    " As usual, the mystery and the setting were excellent but I think the pacing was a bit off. I plodded through pages 200-350 until the pace picked up again. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mieczyslaw Kasprzyk | 1/31/2014

    " This is a gripping book - it had me on the edge of my seat throughout. England is divided on religious lines, there is persecution and fanaticism. In the midst of this a serial killer, his mind unbalanced, sets out on a series of murders inspired by the Book of Revelations. The lawyer Shardlake becomes involved because of the murder of his friend and in the process sees the disturbing realities of madness and Fundamentalism. There is a sense of instability, fanaticism and malice throughout the book. I highly recommend it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kaisa | 1/17/2014

    " Still very good stuff and highly recommended! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tara | 12/12/2013

    " Super creepy serial killings in this one. Recommended for Lisa S. Martino and Hank. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alfreda | 11/21/2013

    " Having read the 1st book Dissolution I am becoming addicted to the author C J Sansom,this is history revisited in your own eyes ( you read and the images appear giving a treasury of history).In my mind a fantastic read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Patrick Carroll | 11/9/2013

    " I really think the author hit his stride with this one, gripping and well paced with the right number of peripheral plots. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nathan Hurst | 11/8/2013

    " Very enjoyable read. This one, more than the previous Shardlake books, reminded me of a 15th century CSI. You have the investigator, the forensic examiner, the dastardly murderer. I'm looking forward to his Sansoms next installment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry | 11/7/2013

    " Another of Sansom's Shardlake mysteries steeped in the era of Henry VIII. Sansom's characters grow with each book. They are gripping. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth | 10/30/2013

    " C. J. Sansom re-creates the London of 1543 so vividly that I could almost smell the cesspools and unwashed population. Sansom has a PhD in history and was a practicing attorney for a number of years -- his main character is a barrister with chambers in Lincoln's Inn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brooke | 6/6/2013

    " So good! I love Sansom's Matthew Shardlake: a hunchback lawyer in Tudor England. This mystery was well-written and well-researched, although a bit graphically violent. Looking forward to getting te next of this series! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lara | 10/12/2012

    " Gripping fourth novel in the Shardlake series. This time the lawyer is on the hunt for a serial killer who appears to be carrying out the horrors of the biblical revelation. Once again Sansom mixes a complex murder mystery with fascinating historical detail. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K.B. Walker | 6/30/2012

    " This is the fourth book in the Matthew Shardlake series and I love them. Can't wait to read the next one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tony O'Donahue | 6/17/2012

    " I've read a number of these books in the series, and it very much fills my need for historical mystery fiction. The Tudor setting and mix of characters real and fictional is stimulating. Some may find the detail and pace too slow, but to me it adds to the enjoyment - it lasts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kirsty | 6/7/2012

    " Loved it, Loved everything about it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ian | 9/14/2011

    " I've enjoyed the previous books in the Shardlake series, but was a bit disappointed by this one. The plot idea of having a serial killer follow a pattern from the book of Revelation seemed very derivative ... most recently in the Dante Club by Matthew Pearl. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scargosun | 9/7/2011

    " CJ Sansom does it again with this work of historical fiction. Henry is wooing Catherine Parr and a serial killer is about. Matthew Shardlake vows to find the killer with some unlikely allies. This book was worth the wait and I can't wait until I can say that about his next book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sharon | 6/16/2011

    " Another wonderful read in the Shardlake series. Wonderfully written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauri | 6/1/2011

    " Solid entry in this series, but I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as the last one. I always enjoy how vividly C.J. Sansom describes what it was like to like in Tudor England and the historical intrigues of the time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra | 6/1/2011

    " A mystery in the time of Cromwell! I'm addicted to mysteries, and these have excellent character development and historical color well drawn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Maria | 5/30/2011

    " Reading these out of order. This was actually the first one I read, last year. Will have to try 2 and 3 now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Claire | 5/23/2011

    " Dark and gruesome murder mystery!, The atmosphere C J Sansom creates is gripping and makes London life and politics tangible. Matthew Shardlake and Jack Barak make a fascinating pair of leading characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alison | 5/16/2011

    " Love this series, and I think this one was a step up from the last, moving into serial killer territory. The insight into the Bedlam of Tudor times gave added interest, and the final solution was unexpected. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Declan | 4/13/2011

    " While the story was clever I felt that this book was a bit long winded.Sansom seemed to have went around in one huge circle to tell a story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 4/6/2011

    " Continues to be an entertaining and interesting series "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 4/1/2011

    " Catherine Howard is history, and Henry is courting Catherine Parr. Again, a lovely mystery in a historical backdrop. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kathy | 3/8/2011

    " I may be biased but I don't really care. I just love the way Sanom weaves a story. I love the characters, the dialogue, the plot, the pacing, and the narration. Plus the little bits of history that I never would have thought about. Time spent with a Sansom novel is not wasted, in my opinion. "
