This was far too long and lacked focus with an irrelevant time slip.The narrator was mediocre too

Great story and narration

Simon Bubb is perfect as the narrator of Sam Wyndham and Mukherjee is back on form with a time slip story set in London and India.A great listen

Pappe has a certain perspective and uses the evidence, such as hypothetical planning of occupation, to support it.He ignores the evidence that counters his main argument.

The narrator is robotic with almost comical attempts at accents

This starts well with an intriguing story line.However, it really started to drag on and , in the end, I lost interest.

Brilliantly written and narrated,Atwood has done it again .Whilst there are hints that my be interpreted as referring to current events, she is too good a writer to be too explicit .Instead, the listener is left to ponder on the fragility of our freedom and the moral dilemmas of those who live under dictatorships.It's also a great story!

This was a stunning debut novel,brilliantly translated and performed by all three narrators.It has a great sense of time and place.Although it deals with the darker aspects of human behaviour,it makes for a compelling lis ten

Roy McMillan's narration made up for slightly disappointing content-much of it was second hand from a variety of specialist writers, but with some interesting elements.
The audible version does not lend itself to the glossary.

After reading rave reviews, I was expecting more-the plot is too far fetched.The only redeeming feature was the excellent Daniel Weyman's narration
