    On a hot summer day, Joanna Mason's family slowly wanders home along a country lane. A moment later, Joanna's life is changed forever....On a dark night 30 years later, ex-detective Jackson Brodie finds himself on a train that is both crowded and late. Lost in his thoughts, he suddenly hears a shocking sound.

    Richard says: "Kate Atkinson pleases again."
    "Ellen"
    Overall

    The book is very enjoyable, but the poor narrator....

    She has a lovely voice, and speaks beautifully, with pretty good intonation, but there are lots of accents in this book, often scots, and they wobble between scots/irish/australian/south-african and that within the same sentence and there is no consitency from person to person. It is a pity, because it is annoying and it does make it hard to follow which character is speaking.

    I would like to hear her narrate something without the accents.
