Narrator doing women's voices was odd. Didn't suit him. Story was gripping. And sexy

Informative surrounding WW but...

Chanel seemed to be for herself siding with whomever may benefit her. Simple as that

You need to want to know about this chap. I discovered I didn't. Edwina's life's account was entertaining. If you think this account will delve into Dickie's relationship with Charles. It doesn't. It's only mentioned here and there..

Gentle adorable story

Adorable but not condescendingly so.
Subtley and tenderly told.
A relationship between an old man and a young boy thrown together by life's misfortunes. The boy's potty mouth is hilarious and scandalous. So if listening to an 11-year old speaking that way and sometimes referring to the old gentleman Noah as an a*****e isn't your cup of tea. Watch out..

Intense and thorough account of those awful days when such terror reigned. Everyone from relatives of the victims, law enforcement and witnesses provide first hand accounts of those fateful days when random people and a child were gunned down and murdered. The subsequent consequences and thoughts of those involved are included too

Loved it

Love when the author reads their own book. Listening to Anne describe her son's death and resisting the urge to cry was heartbreaking. A riveting honest no holds barred account of her life. Would listen again. A joy and fascinating

Ending was abrupt. Caught me by surprise. Overall it's a clever story and a good conversational piece. But it's too subtle. Too suggestive for me. The author sort of leaves it to your own conclusion about aspects.

Not my sort of read

It was my bookclub book. Dystopians are not my thing. As a book the characters aren't well developed. People who choose to have children are 'breeders' (uplifting) There is just no sense of the politics or the history or what was saved. It's touched on with a remark about 'olden days' when the character refers to his parents. The instigators of the 'change'
I believe the wall in this story is based in North Devon. So don't drive yourselves mad wondering where the author based his character initially. The reading of this is slow and languid and I was as bored as Kavanagh was...

It's up there with Grace and Power for me. A delicious insight. Not gossipy or tawdry just inclusive. Being allowed in to the intimate intricacies of minding a great and special lady that was Jackie. Clint when you came in at the end and it was your voice I cried. Your devotion and love bound up in respect. Saying enough without ever betraying your role as her protector and friend. Listened to it twice. It's such a transporting other wordly listen.
