Very atmospheric thriller, exquisitely read with a cadence and lyricism that adds to the interesting story. You can almost smell the forest!

Really enjoyed this, it's very well read by the author and despite the fact I really didn't like either Erin or Mark, I was still gripped for the whole book.

Every dog has its day. And for Lineker, a happy-go-lucky mongrel from Peckham, the day the world ends is his: finally a chance to prove to his owner just how loyal he can be. Reg, an agoraphobic writer with an obsession for 90s football, plans to wait out the impending doom in his second-floor flat, hiding himself away from the riots outside. But when an abandoned orphan shows up in the stairwell of their building, Reg and Lineker must brave the outside in order to save not only the child, but themselves....

Loved this. Made me laugh out loud (and I listen mostly while running so that was a tad embarrassing) It's also gripping and pulls you along. It also brought me to tears in a couple of places. Great book!

Cyril Avery is not a real Avery, or at least that's what his adoptive parents tell him. And he never will be. But if he isn't a real Avery, then who is he? Born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do if eccentric Dublin couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, Cyril is adrift in the world, anchored only tenuously by his heartfelt friendship with the infinitely more glamourous and dangerous Julian Woodbead.

Wonderful - gripping, yet moving and funny. I learned a lot about life in Ireland, some of the book is very sad but it's always unwritten with a sharp humour.
Absolutely brilliant performance too.

I enjoyed this although not as much as his Lewis Trilogy. Narration a bit odd in parts, some very Clouseau type French accents but it's an enjoyable listen
