What made the experience of listening to A Long Way Down the most enjoyable?

The four narrators of A Long Way Down gave it a great flow. Each gave their character a realistic personality and depth.

What did you like best about this story?

The varied perspectives of each character, and their personal story behind what brought them to the roof of a tower block on NYE, made for an interesting read. The shortness of each chapter made it difficult to stop listening.

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

Each narrator had a distinct accent/speaking style, making the book more of a performance than if the book had been read.

Any additional comments?

The ending seemed a little abrupt, I was half expecting the "you have reached the end of this part but not the end of the audiobook" from the audible voice. I'm night sure if this is just because I tend to listen to books over 20 hours, or if I'd gotten so immersed in the story I hadn't expected it to end without a little more detail.
