    Story
    "Very moving and emotional book!"
    Would you listen to Old Before My Time again? Why?

    I will certainly listen to it again, however I feel that if possible I will be even more emotional the second time round, given the sad news of Hayley's death.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the relationship between Hayley and her mother. Even with all of her Progeria related fame, she still stayed true to her.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Unfortunately, I have not though I would like to.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    To be quite honest, the book was very moving in general and therefore I feel that every moment was a moving one in its own way.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend this book to anyone, but have the tissues ready!
