    Story
    "Good, but not great.........."

    The story was ok, but the portrayal of Frank was awful, the voice was irritating and the constant third person references were tedious. Didn't enjoy this one as much as the others, think there are too many characters and parallel stories going on. Joanna Tope is usually good at these, but several voices in this were just full on ham and eventually distractingly annoying. Overall disappointed.

    Story
    "Irritating OTT accents"

    I so wanted to like this but ended up having to force myself to complete this audiobook.
    It's set in Whitby, I'm from the north and was pleased to get northern based tale.
    The problem for me was the exaggerated accents, laborious and often excruciating. I love our northern accents but this was painful. When the narrator wasn't doing an attempt at the accent it was fine.
    It distracted from the story which wasn't actually bad.
    The book was a disappointment. I won't be reading any others in the series.

    Story
    "AWFUL!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If it had been an entertaining story.


    What was most disappointing about Paul Magrs’s story?

    Everything, annoying, frustrating and awful.


    What didn’t you like about Joanna Tope’s performance?

    The accents and the voices are very unbelievable and annoying.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Hell's Belles?

    All but maybe the first few chapters.


    Any additional comments?

    I have been a member since 2011 and rarely give reviews but I felt I had to as this one was easily the worst I have listened to.
