One game. Six students. Five survivors. It was only ever meant to be a game. A game of consequences, of silly forfeits, childish dares. A game to be played by six best friends in their first year at Oxford University. But then the game changed: the stakes grew higher and the dares more personal, more humiliating, finally evolving into a vicious struggle with unpredictable and tragic results. Now, fourteen years later, the remaining players must meet again for the final round.

I enjoyed the book, but the narration wasn't great, some of the accents were dubious to say the least! Glad I stuck with it though.
Better narration, less trying to act the parts
I wanted this to be more like The Secret History but it just wasn't as good at all, I found it a bit grating.
Maybe, a director could possibly bring this story to life in a different way.
"Why The Annoying Fake English Accent?"
I'd use a real English narrator, not an American faking a 'posh' Brit accent. He gets it wrong!
I'm still listening. It's very good.
By faking a 'posh' English accent. Why not get an English narrator to do it? Very few Americans can pull off an English accent convincingly- but most Americans can't tell a fake English accent from a real one, and I suppose the publishers are more interested in keeping American audiences happy.
