Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Unusual but worth a listen"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    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.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Better narration, less trying to act the parts

    "Why The Annoying Fake English Accent?"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'd use a real English narrator, not an American faking a 'posh' Brit accent. He gets it wrong!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I'm still listening. It's very good.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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.
