Hooray for Kate Atkinson she is truly a gifted writer. I loved the characters and found them to be realistic. She described the way people live in England truthfully and so incredibly well. This book was totally wonderful and really held my attention throughout. I LOVED IT and would recommend this author again without any hesitation.
This is the first time I have ever reveiwed a book in writing though I do recommend books for people to read often by mouth.
I really like Dan Browns books and had purchased this book in paperback but never read it. Once I got used to the reader's voices and got through the first part I was hooked. I think it would be better if you could rewind a bit or fast forward a bit if you wanted to, but putting that aside the reader actually sounded like Ray Milland when he did his British accent which I quite liked actually. The story was sort of predictable with some surprises at the end but not really in the same class as either Angels and Demons or The DaVinci Code so as long as you don't expect that kind of writing you wont be disappointed. A good read but not worth so much money - it should have been way cheaper as it certainly doesn't deserve the price that it costs and I probably would have given it a higher rating if it had been cheaper. But I did like it and really like listening to books on my Ipod.
