If there was one book that the world needs to read it's this one.
This book was so moving I cried when it was finished. So absorbing. It gave an insight into the terrible world of refugees and how people become asylum seekers.
Art Malik's performance was brilliant. He became Yuri.

Would you listen to Blood Sisters again? Why?

I would listen again as it was such a brilliant performance and riveting plot

Who was your favorite character and why?

Equally Alison and Kitty. Kitty was funny in places and Alison so earnest.

Any additional comments?

Once the book got going I had to listen to the end. There were twists in the plot that were totalling unexpected. The author's insights into how sisters work were very insightful. Highly recommended.

slow to get going but once it did it was enthralling. The twists and turns were clever and made for a gripping story.

What would have made The Great British Short Story Collection better?

I have just bought this and within a few sentences I realised I had made a mistake. The narrator has such an annoying voice, I can't stand to listen. Avoid at all costs!

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

Cathy Dobson

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Cathy Dobson?

Anyone

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None

Any additional comments?
