I'm really enjoying the characters. the story in good. However, the story world is muddled. too much of the familiar names and places, religious and landmarks are mixed with new. I think the writer should pick one or the other.

I liked this story, it's clearly ment for a saga. downside is it's a bit slow in action no big reveals or climatic change. nothing to really get your teeth into. however you are captivated by mystery and exciting characters.

I love how experimental Parker's writing and POV was. but some could have been cut. better editing and trusting your reader would have strenghted the story. Voice preformance was fantastic.

following Tallula after Jakes death is a good idea, but it lacks Jake's character and turn of phrase that makes the first book so good. the performance is good but not special enough to make up for the lack of action and suspense.

the story is predictable and not that original but the narrative voice and written descriptions are the best of Glen Duncan's writing. The reading is very preformed Sachs has done wonders in bring the characters alive.

the story is nothing special but the voice performances by Jim Dale are great fun and kept me listening.
The different view points are a nice touch but poorly used in some parts, which is a shame.
still very likeable.

time has moves on and only the wonderful description has survied the transition. too long and languishing for modem liseners.
