    Story
    "It's the little things...."

    In a chance meeting on a London street, sophisticated Nina encounters old acquaintance and harried new mum Emma. Nina has a much longer memory than Emma and begins to court lonely, forgetful and isolated Emma, 'Her', as Nina thinks of Emma: HER.

    Harriet Lane's story is told in two voices, one calculating the other rather oblivious and sweet. There are no real surprises in 'Her', but in the two narratives, Lane makes you care about the finely wrought characters- she makes you hope the inevitable and cataclysmic ending can somehow be averted.
    There's no fancy footwork here, no unreliable narrative, misdirection or obstrufication- just taut, excellent storybuilding through two distinct points of view. In fact, 'Her' kind of crept up on me; I was on the fence, thinking it might be a return but after a couple of hours was surprised to find myself utterly engaged.

    Narrator Julie Maisey is superb as both characters, but the audio recording of 'Her' needs two distinct voices: a few times I picked up the story in the middle of a chapter and waited or rewound to figure out whether it was Nina or Emma's narrative.

    Despite the misjudgment in production, 'Her' ranks somewhere near the top of the 400+ books in my library.

    Story
    "Don't waste your credit"
    What would have made Her better?

    The story only needed telling once. Telling the same incidents from two perspectives felt like padding.


    Has Her put you off other books in this genre?

    No . This is just a poor one.


    What didn’t you like about Julie Maisey’s performance?

    The narration was the best part


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Frustration, boredom and then anger. I saw it through to the end for the great reveal which was something and nothing, and then the abrupt inconclusive ending made me scream !

    Story
    "Somewhat disappointing"
    Would you be willing to try another book from Harriet Lane? Why or why not?

    .I may try another book by this author because I enjoyed her writing style very much, however, the story disappointed in in its predictability, particularly towards the end.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen to it in one go, more for the reason that I was decorating a room at the time, rather than being so enthralled I couldn't stop..


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator delivered the characters perfectly, but so much of the narrative - delivered alternately, chapter by chapter, in the voice of one or other of the two main protagonists, was too repetitive, most especially when it came at the beginning of the final chapter when I actually had to check that the download had worked properly. I did feel sorry for Julie Maisey in that the story only enabled to change her emotive style at the very last minute.
