Perfect narrator for the story. Just the right tone and delivery. The story didn’t go where I expected, not really like anything else I’ve read of late. Quite different and enjoyed it enough to listen to it twice.

Ruth Ware and Imogen Church my favourite pair on Audible

My favourite narrator so I’m going to listen to anything with her. Ruth Ware is so good that one of her books not up to the standard of The Turn Of The Key is still a book well worth a listen.

So good I’ve listened to it twice

This narrator perfectly matches to the tone and style in which the book is written. So often you can like a story but the narrator isn’t quite right, but this is a subtle performance that draws out everything from the characters and the plot.

Read this if you want to understand the TV version

Once you get past the narrator and slightly off recording quality, this is way better than the TV version. They rushed the final episode. Could’ve easily made two episodes out of the final one.

Anyway all the questions you had left hanging are in here.

There are so many elements to crucial conversations that you can actually pick up and apply to your home and work life. It's not just theory. The book gives you new and real tools that you can use in so many different scenarios. It's by far my favourite development reading to date. I've learnt the most and changed the most because of it.

Wasn't sure about a change in narrator but ended up loving it

I wasn't at all sure about a change in narrator but it's worked so well. I'm really enjoying the story from a different perspective, hearing how someone else chooses to deal with the outbreak and the consequences of their decisions. The style, whilst similar in some ways to the first three books seems sometimes as if it's written by a different author. I nearly gave up on the first book. So glad I stuck with it as I'm hooked now!

They've finally reached Audible & it was worth the wait. An essential purchase read beautifully by Stephen Fry.
