Wonderful, dark undertones. Subtle and well constructed. A book that all who enjoy good literature will enjoy.

Underwhelmed and disappointed<br />

Although the subject is a serious one the writing was very superficial. There was no depth to this book. Setting the scene by using product references is completely unnecessary . The accents used in the reading made it seem like a school play. I don't recommend this book.

This book has many good points. Read Well, The story line was a bit contrived towards the end with some unbelievable plot lines but I would recommend it.

This is an extremely well written book in the narrative style. I found it compelling, subtle, cleverly written. A breath of fresh air among so many mediocre novels.

Captivating story but awful reading.

A lovely story however the reading made me cringe in parts especially the South African and Chinese accents.

Interesting insight into the mind of HG Wells

I enjoyed listening to these. Easy to follow and well read. Gave an interesting perspective on the psychology of HG Wells.

Another great novel by Murakami. Inventive.

Really enjoyed this book. As always Murakami's descriptive writing keeps the listener curious. His characterisation is skillful and consistent.

One of Dickens best. Well read.<br />

A really good piece of writing. Dickens never fails! He is a master of story telling and continues to be relevant to today.

I’m not at all sure why this book has any 5 star reviews. I was expecting so much more. The plot was weak and predictable. .....and please pronounce the word ‘rifled’ it is NOT riffled. Grrrr.
