I have often thought that we rely too much on electronics in almost every area of our daily lives - we have lost the art of being ‘offline’ and this story is so close to the truth of what could happen. I could not stop listening even though I had a chill of realisation down my back the entire time. A must listen .....

Such a great story

I loved this book so much I literally could not stop listening! The performances from the narrators was perfect and the characters in the book really well portrayed - most especially Sunshine!

Unusual!!

I loved this book for its unusual theme and pace! Kobna Holdbrook-Smith was the perfect choice for narrator! I will never walk the streets of London again without just wondering if it all might be true!!!

I initially downloaded this for my daughter - but I started listening and was spellbound. This is a very contemporary and compelling story which covers loss, grief, prejudice and abandonment. The author lets you see tragedy from all angles and the whole book is thought provoking and touching. David Tennant does a fantastic job of setting just the right tone, and at times I am sure I detected a tear in his eye. Fabulous book - highly recommended!
