Where does Elizabeth Is Missing rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the top stories I have listened to. two.women missing 50 years apart a whodunit with a difference!

Who was your favorite character and why?

The main character is searching for Elizabeth whilst suffering the beginnings of Dementia
Her reliance upon slips of paper to work as an aide memoir, dated but what happens when you don't remember the date or if you have already acted upon what's on the paper

What does Anna Bentinck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Anna brings the characters and story to life with the feeling that you are a character within the story

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

The main characters narration and her sudden confusion as to who this woman in front of her is.
The story itself takes the listener into how it must be for somebody suffering from dementia and how sometimes she will recognise her daughter and grand daughter then suddenly wonder who these people are.

Any additional comments?

Although the character is suffering from dementia, the actual story is about two missing Somerset gif th years apart. It is a who done it with many red herrings and twists that when the story ends you are left wanting to remain and hear more.
Wonderful thought provoking enjoyable adventure
Never judge a book by its cover ....is so true of this book
