    "Intriguing idea which turns literary to farce"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is a book which must be finished, however the "who is watching who, watching who, and watching them", has an element of literary farce. The initially intriguing plot is stretched thin, the writing style over complicated which with the dull narration makes the book tedious. Characters are shallow stereotypes, and the plot predictable.


    What didn’t you like about Buffy Davis’s performance?

    Dull and rather monotonous to my ear, not aided by the repetitive story line with very predictable outcomes and shallow characters.


    Did The Expats inspire you to do anything?

    Not an inspiring book I am afraid, a great story idea which was let down in the narrative and the narration.

    "The Expats"
    Where does The Expats rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'm a newbie to audible books but this ranks among the best I've listened to so far.


    What other book might you compare The Expats to and why?

    John le Carrie, A Delicate Truth. Similar subject matter and the same lightness of touch enhanced by the sympathetic narrator, Buffy Davis


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were many but the final meeting was the most revealing, when we became aware of the shared duplicity that had brought these people together.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No but I needed to check the the authors gender (was Chris a Christine?). As a man myself I thought the main character (Kate) was well crafted and suggested a woman's hand.


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed this book and look forward to other novels from this author
