Great book spoiled by poor narration

I love this series but why if they had to get a new narrator could they not get one who could do voices. The female voices are all awful especially Paula and as for Dave, he is Autistic not doomed up on tranquillisers. I will give it one more book but if it does not improve I will be mourning the loss of a great series.

Far exceeded my expectations

I loved this book. It is full of mystery, compassion and secrets and is very well read by Jenny Agutter. I will be recommending it to all my friends

The imaginative ideas in this book kept me listening but I found the childlike fairy tale style of the writing a little irritating. For me the characters lack any real depth. The ideas has the making of a really good book and some decent feedback to the author in the early stages could have made it so much better

Loved this book

The story was really good and provides a real insight to historic attitudes. The narrator was good but was let down by poor sound mixing. At times the volume caused my ears to vibrate and at others it was almost inaudible.

I am a huge fan of Rachel Abbots books and this was about the 6th one I have listened to. Had it been the first it would have been the only one. I persevered despite the awful narration of the female characters. Such a shame

A masterpiece I loved it

I loved this book, it was the best I have listened to in a while. Liane Moriarty brings her characters, their imperfections, vulnerabilities and emotions to life with complete artistry.

A well told story of Comey’s service to his country

Comey comes across as a truly honest and compassionate human being who has dedicated his life to protecting others. The contrast between his leadership and that of Trump is telling of how a large minority of the American people have been duped by bravado and bullshit. I only hope they find their way back to honesty and integrity.

Good story but needs serious editing

I really enjoyed the story and the characters were well formed. It was way too long and if there is an abridged version I would go for that instead
