Would you try another book written by Leah Mercer or narrated by Simon Mattacks and Henrietta Meire ?

I like the idea of the story but I don't feel that it acheived it full potential.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The idea of being lost in a strange place was interesting although asking someone for help would have sorted it out a lot quicker.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The female narrator was a little annoying, it sounded a bit unnatural, like she was reading it from a sheet for the first time.

Did Who We Were Before inspire you to do anything?

Go back to Paris.

Any additional comments?

I didn't dislike the book but I felt dissatisfield once I'd finished it.

Great idea and well written apart from it being from the point of view of the child throughout. The voice was distracting and annoying after the first hour

Engagingly uncomfortable

Fantastic book. It's view from 3 characters means you need to concentrate on what's going on but the engages you more. Great choice of narrators. Simply brilliant!
