Shakespeare's Landlord [Audiobook]

Shakespeare's Landlord (Audio) - Julia Gibson, Charlaine Harris

My review of the book can be found here.


Charlaine Harris' Lily Bard series is the only one of her works I really like. There's just something about Lily and her town that seems very real to me and the mysteries are all very good. It still saddens me there are only five of these.


For the basics on the characters and plot, please see the link above for my review of the book, which I own along with the others books. This review focuses on the audiobook.


Overall, I found the audiobook good but not great. The narrator did an adequate job and some of her character voices I liked. However, I never could warm up to her portrayal of Lily and as the story's from her point of view, that was a bit of a problem.


Even worse, there were a couple times my mind wandered; I was very glad I not only knew the story well but also knew who the murderer was.


That's not to say I didn't enjoy it at all and I'll probably listen to the rest from the library as they fulfill three different challenges at once that way. I just don't think I'll own any version but the paperbacks, though.
