The story is very much an amateur attempt by someone who is interested in history but feels the need to soak themselves in 'sexy' obvious prose.

Historically very interesting but more is written about killing each other (and cruel violence) than the day to day life of the characters. I am sure some people will enjoy the book because it is well written. I can cope with murders and drug dealing but for me this is not a balanced enough story.

Well written - suspenseful

The book starts with a man who has lost his memory - as he recovers it you learn, with him, what has happened.
Don't try to guess because you will fail!
The subject is very current, and is interesting (especially if you are interested in the current problems of our bees) - the characters are well written. I will search for more books by this author.

An enjoyable story with enough twists and turns to keep you engaged. The characters are fully written so you care about what happens to them and want to find out what happens next.
Finishes with what's a typical Stephen King theme just enough to tell you that there is a corner to be turned.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Norah Lofts always keeps you interested in the various characters and ,in this case, in the house. Through many changes you are drawn into the history of the house and the effects it has on its inhabitants.

Would you try another book written by Joël Dicker or narrated by Robert Slade?

I am currently not tempted to read another book by this author. The narration was acceptable.

What was most disappointing about Joël Dicker’s story?

Personally I felt it read like a book written by someone who went to creative writing classes and took notes and tried to learn (probably his tutor would have been very pleased with him) but it was not individual enough to interest me

What three words best describe Robert Slade’s voice?

Acceptable - not varied enough - poor when dealing with the female characters
