Interesting group of stories connected by £20 note

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, I would. It's a short story so it's a nice bite to consume on a walk with your dog or whilst you're sat in traffic.

What other book might you compare The £20 Note to, and why?

I can't really compare it to any other book, though it appealed to me because I like crime/mystery fiction though it's not easy to put it into that category either.

What does Matthew Kerslake bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Putting the voices to the characters. It's difficult to get lost in a book with characters.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, it's a short story.

Any additional comments?

It's an interesting group of stories that can really only be linked together by something as simple as a lost £20 note. Beware though, it get's increasingly more adult as the story is told!!

Something extraordinary! And I loved it! Epic!

An unusual and enjoyable plot in this novella brings us along on a unique trip as we follow the £20 note as it passes from person to person, involving us with several scenarios, different in many ways. Matthew Kerslake narrates to perfection. Thank you to author David Fuentes for allowing me to listen freely. I’m looking forward to the others in this series. Get it. You won’t be sorry! Highly recommended. I want more! NOW!

A new way of thinking

Amazing way of showing what a 20 dollar bill would go through in its life. The characters are fun the whole time and the ending was insane in a good way. Was not ready and I laughed when it came to the ending. Totally worth the time!!! Would listen to it again.

Interesting Premise

I thought that the premise for this novella was quite interesting. I'm not giving anything away by stating that the author, David Fuentes', idea is to have the reader follow the path of a £20 Note as it travels through London from one person to another. The book is a novella that is part of a series therefore we are only afforded a glimpse of the entire storyline. To witness the trajectory of the note is quite thought-provoking, as it moves from one person to another, none of them knowing it's origin. The storyline is primarily a crime series and the violence occurs quickly in the novella. It is difficult to comment on the type of crime that the note becomes involved in, without giving away too much of the story but suffice to say that this novella should be rated for "adults only" due to some rather explicit content. The narrator, Matthew Kerslake, does a fine job with his voice characterizations although as a male, female voices are always more difficult to achieve. The story moves quickly and leaves the reader/listener wanting to know where the £20 Note travels next which is the sign of a good novel. 3.5 🌟🌟🌟.🌟

I received a complementary copy of "The £20 Note" by David Fuentes from StoryOrigin in exchange for an honest review. I am not related nor friends with this author. The opinions expressed in this review are fully mine unless identified as that of another person.

Fun and different perspective

This really hooked me from the start. I listened to this months ago and thought I wrote a review but apparently only a star review. This book is fun, and made me start thinking of other objects perspective which in my opinion is what a book is suppose to do... make you think.

Check these out!

I actually listened to all four of these related books in order. Each would be fine as a standalone, but for me it did seem to add an extra level to experience them all together.
Such a fascinating idea, and such a fun listen. Don’t want to say too much that I spoil anything for anyone, so I’ll just say these are well worth it!

Awesome but confusing at first.

I was listening to this audio book first thinking that the 20 dollar note had something special something about it but it is about how money goes from one side to another. It got confusing at first since this is a very new experience for me. This book is about how many goes from one place to another. The narrator is amazing and has done a great job with all the voices. One of the most wonderful things about this book is how all of us humans are different and the thing that we have in common is money. This tells small shorties but in a unique way and it is pure genius of a way telling short stories. I do wish if the books were labeled by book 1 to book 6? I thought it was 4 books and audible is mentioning that the new york one is book 5? Pretty confusing and it would be nice if it was cateorgised in the description.

Confusing and messy

the writing style and story are confusing and strange. The narration was fine. I wasn't a fan.
