A week storey, somewhat boring.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No idea. First time listeners. Easy to follow not to many characters

What could Katie Flynn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

It was just the wrong storey for me.

What three words best describe Anne Dover’s voice?

I like Anne Dover but found the Liverpool accent overdone.

What character would you cut from Beyond the Blue Hills?

They all played their part in a week way.

Any additional comments?

Not my favourite
