What made the experience of listening to London Falling the most enjoyable?

Once you get into and start enoying the various characters and I did eventually find myself enjoying this book. If there is a sequel I will definitely give it a go!

What other book might you compare London Falling to, and why?

Reminded me a little of Stephen Leather's Jack Nightingale series, but only a little!

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

I have listened to other books narrated by Damien Lynch, Mike Carey Books for example. Though I don't think this was one of his best.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, it wasn't so fast paced or thrilling!

great read

Would you consider the audio edition of The Corporal's Wife to be better than the print version?

I have done both read and listen to audiobooks from Gerald Seymour and enjoy both. Reading makes me conjure up the characters in my head but the readers bring the characters to life for me.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Corporal's Wife?

When the corporal's wife sacrifices her own life to help Zack.

Which character – as performed by Daniel Philpott – was your favourite?

Zack, he was the spirit of the book.
