A Wikipedia researched, writing by number novel

Would you try another book written by Alys Clare or narrated by Charlotte Strevens?

No

What was most disappointing about Alys Clare’s story?

The 'plot' came across as a series of disconnected events. It was written as though the author had just completed a series of creative wrong classes and wanted to include everything she had learned. Poor research.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Charlotte Strevens?

I feel bad giving her one star because the quality of what she was reading was so poor, which Didn't help. No idea who I would have inflicted this on to read instead.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Boredom mostly
