Awful narration

A strong, pacy thriller that was spoiled by the narration. Charlie Sanderson’s frequent mispronunciations, occasional inappropriate pauses (or is this poor editing?) and emphasis on the wrong syllable detracts from the story. I won’t be listening to her again, I hope. Sarah Flint’s writing skills deserve better.

Enjoyable book

It was a good book, let down by a terrible narrator. I would definitely think twice about buying another book narrated by Charlie Sanderson!

Well thought out plot

A really enjoyable plot. Well thought out with plenty of twists and turns. The narrator, Charlie Sanderson was very good at the different accents.

Mommy's Favourite

I nearly gave up on this book as the narration was dreadful. The main character was okay but the other voices, particularly the men, were awful.
