Top 20 but that's because I love the book so much.
Don't want to give anything away.
Nope haven't listened to him before but he was good.
This book makes you care about the characters and the journey.
I would of liked a woman narrating the story because of the female leads.
I found it difficult to take my headphones off. Matthew Mullane does an amazing narration of Alan Williams's novel. Alan's story weaves it's way through Blackheath and the characters are brought to life by Matt in a special way. Recommend wholeheartedly by me
this lengthy book encapsulates two genre's of horror. well explained full story altogether I do feel the parallel story could have made two books.
A great audio book. Laugh out loud moments, romantic, scary, weepy, a really good listen. The narrator has a wide variety of voices and coupled with the sound effects he keeps you hooked into the story.
Well worth a listen.
