Didn't know what to expect. Great that Dom Joly narrated it too. Give it a go.
"Took a bit of getting used to"
My second Kate Atkinson. I read the last one so this was my first listen. I enjoyed it, but as with the other one I had read I find the coincidences a little too much. It took a little while to get into as I found I was easily distracted. But got my act together and made myself pay attention and then I was hooked.
"Another good read (listen)"
Both Haller and Bosch are in this one. That was a bit hard to get used to as I'm used to Bosch being the leading character. I enjoyed it. Not perfect, but if you know Connelly then you won't be disappointed.
"Another easy read (listen) from Tony Hawks"
This is the first Tony Hawks book I have listened to, having read a couple of his previous books. As he has also narrated this book it feels as though he is sitting in your front room having a chat over a cup of tea. A lovely, easy listen. I was only disappointed it was quite short. Did it really need to be abridged?
I wasn't sure about this to start with as the narrator is obviously the author rather than a professional actor. However, his story telling was insightful and when I finished the book I didn't want to start another one for ages as this one stayed with me and I kept thinking about it. I'm not sure where I stand on 'alternative' healers etc, but the journey they had and the outcomes achieved were heartwarming to say the least. I have a son similar in age and I love horses so I could relate to it to a degree, but even without that I think the story and the journey, both physical and emotional, is an amazing adventure.
