I fall into the minority that not only grew up in Birmingham, but also studied at the school King Williams is based on, I even got the same bus as mentioned in the story, a couple of decades later though.
For me the experience was like colouring in an unknown past, I remember thinking at one point that I could have been one of the characters had my life been transposed back to those times! It's difficult to imagine how this story would be received by anyone else.
The narrator is good - although not the most convincing female voices I've heard from a male narrator.
