Where does Wake rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

its a great book, very well read. the characters are so well drawn that you feel their loss. the descriptions are clear and you begin to understand what the world post WW1 must have been like.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Wake?

the end when they all go to London to see the procession of the Unknown Warrior. the description of the crowds all being dressed in black and how the men all took off their hats as a mark of respect. very powerful stuff.

What about Anna Hope’s performance did you like?

she read the book as she meant it to come across. I found it confusing that there were no breaks when changing from one character to another, and felt a bit lost but only to start with. it allowed you to understand that these story lines were all running at the same time. I wonder if it looks different in print?

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

you will weep by the end, beware

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

the story was weak, and the ending poor and reminded me of writing stories as a child when you end up saying - it was all a dream and I woke up!

What will your next listen be?

entry island - peter may

What did you like most about Company of Liars?

an unusual story with great characters, each with a secret that unfolds. set in the middle ages the narrative is rich with some amazing historical facts and you live the band of liars journey with them. I would recommend this to you whether you like historical books or not

the end is brilliant - I never saw that coming!

David Thorpe reads this so well, all the characters voices are so believable

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

the book is too long to do that unless you put your life on hold, but I felt I had lost a friend when it ended!
