Reviews

Good tale great narration


(5 stars)

I really enjoyed this tale,read by a all star Librivox cast of readers. I found Isabel a very intriguing and a little difficult to figure out at times very charming. I found the ending a little bit different than I thought it would be, but a good one. Thanks to all the great readers and a very enjoyable time! This is well worth a listen.


(3 stars)

good story but one of the readers kept changing accents in the middle of the sentence constantly if they're it stop being funny it was just annoying

Confusing and irritating


(2 stars)

This book had some good moments, but mostly it was too convoluted to be believable. And the title character was just irritating.

good spy tale
