einfach zu gewollt - todlangweilig, einfach nur dämlich. Schade, bin ansonsten grosser Fan von Dieter Nuhr.

Set in a surreal version of the world in 2015 divided into mono and duo human beings monos can only remember 1 day and duos two days and all heavily rely on iDiaries to remember their past. A duo writer and aspiring politician and his mono house wife are confronted with the sins of their past triggered by the discovery of a dead body. In the course of the story is becomes clear that everybody has their secrets and that nothing is black and white. While in hindsight many things become clear, nothing is really predictable.
A brilliant story performed by two of the finest actors Indira Varma and Rory Kinnear. While a shared narration not always works, on this occasion it is a brilliant way of allowing the listener to dive into this surreal world.
Best audiobook for a very long time!

Would you listen to The Last Witness again? Why?

It's a multi faceted story which keeps the listener guessing to the end.

Who was your favorite character and why?

D.C.I. Daley as flawed lead character. Looking forward to learn more of his life in the next story.

Have you listened to any of David Monteath’s other performances? How does this one compare?

David Monteath is a master of bringing several characters to alive and giving them all individual voices and genuine accents. This nuanced delivery is pure joy tolisten to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but 10 hours are best listened to in two chunks.

Any additional comments?

Great entertainment from the coast of Scotland.

What made the experience of listening to Whisky from Small Glasses the most enjoyable?

The narrator brings each character to life. His ability to create so many different personalities with their unique voices and accent is second to none.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The lead character. As much he is a trouble personality he is not as hopeless as many other police officers.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

After a night of reconciliation the falling back into old behavioral patterns.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did listen through it in 1 day.

Any additional comments?

A good solid crime story brought to life by a brilliant narrator. I am looking forward to next instalment.

Great stories, great performances BUT no credits included in the recording which are linked without titles or credits. Audible/BBC should be sued for this violation of moral rights.

Narrator David Monteath brings with his warm and engaging all characters in their own voice to life and presents a new angle to Scottish history. Highly enjoyable as the 18 hours have in order to be to keep the listener all the way on board. Highly recommended!

disappointing sequel

Replacing the fabulous narrator Allam was the first bad choice. The multi-angle story turned into a rather one dimentional prison story was the second one. Waste of time.

Masterpiece in writing and narration

This is a gripping story of the business world and how PR tries to clean wash dubious business practices. David Thorpe delivers a masterpiece as a narrator brilliantly impersonating each character. That is how a story needs to be performed.
