I throughly enjoyed this book, Kate Atkinson is a great and interesting writer. However the narrator had the most dreadful Scottish accents The Scots all sounded surprised and rather whiney. Otherwise I would have given this book 5 stars.
I did not realise this was an abridged version when I downloaded the book. I hate to listen to abridged books and as much as I like Jason Isaacs reading this what is the point? I would rather the whole story or not at all.
As I agree with most of the previous reviews ( the story, the charters, the narration, laughter and tears), all I would say is that if you have never listened to a book before then try this.one. It is a joy!
One of the most beautiflly written books I have read in a long time. Extremely moving and wonderfully read. This book was impossible to put down. It made me laugh and cry and the dogs are fantastic. You don't need to be a dog lover to enjoy this book but if you are then I think you'll enjoy it even more. Recently chosen for Oprah's Book Club. A real delight!
