    Building on the tradition of Little Bee, Chris Cleave again writes with elegance, humor, and passion about friendship, marriage, parenthood, tragedy, and redemption. Gold is the story of Zoe and Kate, world-class athletes who have been friends and rivals since their first day of Elite training. They've loved, fought, betrayed, forgiven, consoled, gloried, and grown up together. Now on the eve of London 2012, their last Olympics, both women will be tested to their physical and emotional limits.

    Story
    If you could sum up Gold in three words, what would they be?

    Wide-ranging, human, emotional


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kate - I could so connect with her desire to please but wanting to win at the same time.


    What about Emilia Fox’s performance did you like?

    Emilia Fox did a very credible job of the different voices and settings - I don't recall any passages where I was confused about who was speaking. Her performance also kept me engaged.


    Who was the most memorable character of Gold and why?

    Zoe - I can't imagine the torment she went through, but it all seemed believeable.


    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't stay away from the book but I was reluctant to finish it - I didn't want the book to be over. Of course, the timing was perfect for me (Aug'12) but I think this story would be just as engaging at any time.
    I generally go for the longer books - I'm an Audible addict - but I've had the unfortunate habit recently of getting tired of books before they're done. This was absolutely not the case with this book.
