I hear voices. But maybe that's because there's always an Audible book in my ear.
a terrific book anyway. This author has an uncanny ability to weave story lines together in a really unique way. She does it again in this book. The characters, as always, are quirky and memorable. Nicely done.
Unfortunately this book was so enthralling and so hard to stop listening to that now I have finished it no other book comes close to keeping my attention. Susan Jameson is a wonderful narrator I will download more books just to listen to her lovely voice.
Late middle-aged constant reader who greatly prefers Audible "reads" to radio. I love all books -- Audible, eReader and print editions.
A friend recommended the print version of this book but I was starting a project so I downloaded the Audible so I could knit while listening and the book was so good I never finished the project. What an unusually talented author! And the narration was wonderful -- the time line is erratice but the narrator's talent keeps you in the moment. I have recommended this to a number of others. I hope that there are more of Atkinson's titles on Audible.
If you like Kate Atkinson you will really enjoy this. Rich characters, very clever story and good narration.
This was an excellent book, as all Kate Atkinson's are. But what set it apart for me was the read. Susan Jamison made it come alive.
This is indeed a fresh voice, but a long drawn one as well. I would call this more of a portrait rather than any sort of engaging read. A well done portrait, but overly detailed and no plot to speak of. If you are looking for a quick read this is not it. There are many characters and it is more about their personalities rather than anything in particular that they do or aspire to do. Don't get me wrong, this is a good story, but keep your expectations in check. It is not a thriller by any means. It becomes very engaging after about diving about a quarter of the way into it.
I really tried to get into this book, liked the premise, liked the narrator, but just could not summon the interest needed to live with these characters.
