The story was excellent, the narration superb. I really hope they keep it British when they make the film.

I had difficulty investing in the characters. This was mainly due to the book being read without emotion. The story never really took off but remained a slow burn.

It's a marmite book you will either love it or hate it.

I struggled to listen to this book. Not because the story was bad in fact it was quite the opposite, but because the narration was so awful. The narrators voice seemed to rise at the end of every sentence and the characters all sounded the same. I would like to know what happens next but not if I have to listen to the same narrator. if you can persevere with the narration the book is actually pretty good.

this book is timeless. it offers great insights and examples of human behaviour. the only criticsm would be that it mainly deals with office and business. otherwise a great suggestion from a friend

This book did not help me sleep. The narrators tone wasn't soothing but rough around the edges. I tried each chapter a couple of times but still didn't get to sleep. Definitely not for me.
