I have loved all of the baby Ganesh books and this one was no exception.
The atmosphere the author creates with an excellent narrator of course is just lovely!
You feel safe (in spite of there having been a murder!) and as though you are really there.
A bit of the history of India too! what's not to like? only another couple of hours maybe?!

wonderful!

What made the experience of listening to Silent Child: Audible's Thriller of the Year the most enjoyable?

The usual being able to get on with other activities alongside the audio.

What did you like best about this story?

Aidan speaking - see below.

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

A lovely voice, but extremely irritating pronunciation of all words ending in 'ook' Look, Book, Hook etc as Luck, Buck, Huck.
This absolutely did my head in and I will need to, for my own sanity, avoid any books she has read again.

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

No

Any additional comments?

I wish I had read the book instead as I think it might have been better that way as I could have imagined the voices and it might have felt a little less like 'chic-lit'

Would you consider the audio edition of The Strange Disappearance of a Bollywood Star to be better than the print version?

I have no idea whether the written words would be better as I haven't read the book just the audio. I do think though that the music at the beginning and end as well as the new narrator's voice, Madhav Sharma, added to the atmosphere.
I had initially been a little worried as Sartaj Garewal had narrated the 2 previous books.
No need to worry Madhav was perfect too.

What did you like best about this story?

I fell in love with the series right at the beginning and adore the gentle man who is Inspector Chopra. The plot-lines could only happen in India!! They are never boring, often funny and nearly always heart-warming :)I love this series so much the characters are filling out the further we go through it.

Which character – as performed by Madhav Sharma – was your favourite?

Sorry to say it, but it's the cheeky Ganesh who is my favourite - always has been. I am confident that elephants do have feelings and emotions. Ganesh shows bravery, loyalty, cheekiness and much more.

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

Poppy coming to the rescue wasn't moving as such, but if I remember rightly it was a first. It cemented the relationship between husband and wife for me.

Any additional comments?

Hurry up Vaseem with the next book!!

l had no problem at all listening to this audio. it was such a lovely story.
So many lives interwoven together to create a family history which began years ago with the selling of a child.
The impact of this act is far reaching...many lives harmed, maybe.....maybe not.
That's for the listener to decide.

This was a man

l enjoyed this audio. It was well narrated and the pace of the story worked well.
Many twists/ unexpected parts. The baddie wasn't who l initially thought he was...and even one tiny surprise at the end. Satisfying all round.
