I really enjoyed the print version of this book so I bought the audio version for my mother who is partially sighted - we both enjoyed listening to it, the narration was pitched perfectly and really complemented the story.
Egan Bagley is indeed a talented clockmaker and every time I look at the Eastgate Clock I think of him.
This was certainly a book that you had to listen to in one sitting and we enjoyed it from start to finish.
Evelyn Winters is a very talented writer and Guy Veryzer did this story justice. I would love to listen to more from this very creative partnership
