I just gulped this book-- the writing was marvelous, the reader superb. The concept was developed with skill and humor. I lose traction on books fairly easily and often find popular writing to be contrived and inane but this book was everything one could hope-- except perhaps too short. I am going to go back and listen to all of the Penelope Lively titles that are available through Audible (and hope they add additional ones!)
I loved the television production and even more loved the audio version of the book. The narrator faced a real challenge with so many different characters and she deserves six stars for her performance.
A creative and fascinating plot, read expertly by Tamara Lovatt Smith. Liane Moriarty has a gift for getting dialogue (and inner monologue) exactly right. I highly recommend this book as well as her earlier book called "What Alice Forgot".
