What did you like most about Watching the Dark?
Interesting enough story, though at times it seemed a bit padded.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
I have earlier Banks audio books, read by Neil Pearson, so maybe I'm a bit biased as to how Banks is presented, and did not really enjoy this narrator, who had an unusual take on accents.
