If you love revisionist history, then you're going to love this! And if not, then you're STILL going to love this! Gladwell weaves teaching and storytelling to provide hidden insights into our current culture. Very well produced and a joy to listen to. Bring on the 'enhanced audiobook'!

I thought that the content and the production of this was very well done. It took you to places you never though would link up, and while quite dark in places, also offered hope and entertainment.

Amazing book, modern day shakespear...

Would you consider the audio edition of The Bricks That Built the Houses to be better than the print version?

Yes - Kate's reading is part of the lyrical mastery of this production. Her delivery and character portrayal are just outstanding.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Pete's birthday at the pub, becasue it is the perfect climax to the setup.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

So many moments that moved me! Her character portraits are mu favourite thing about her writing.

Any additional comments?

I honestly think that listening to Kate Tempest is like what it must have been listening to Shakespear at the time - her word economy, and detailed picture painting is phenomenal. This is an unpredictable and exciting first novel which I inhaled as it was so good.
