    "Lovely winter listen"

    One of my favourite listens for driving to and from work in the winter. The characters are over the top but believable. The plot bounces along at an enjoyable pace. Lovely.

    "Just appalling narration!"

    Great book with lots of twists and turns. Pity the narrator made everyone sound like they had some sort of speech or intellectual impediment!

    "Not her best"

    I've had a couple of other books by Veronica Henry and have been pleased with them. This book however was disappointing.

    The story wasn't the best but the narration was very poor and I was almost at the point of stopping listening many times. I would urge everyone to listen to the sample first (which I hadn't done as I had bought the story based on previous experience of this author) before purchasing.

    "Great characters, really good story, but . . . . ."
    What did you like most about Marriage and Other Games?

    The characters were really well drawn and each of their stories were interesting. I really cared what happened next throughout.


    Did Maggie Mash do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    Maggie Mash's narration of the general story was really good and yes, she certainly differentiated the characters, but many of them were spoken in cringe making fashion. They were often spoken too loudly, with tones that frequently made them appear to have a significant learning disability (when they didn't)!


    Any additional comments?

    I did enjoy this book. I would definately have enjoyed it more with more consistently good narration. However, Henry has over-written it in places, using flowery words were they just should not be, e.g. what ordinary working bloke thinking through how he would manage if he had his children full time, would think during otherwise day-to-day speech that their grandparents would probably take them "in extremis"? Most individuals with a MA in English would be unlikely to use that term in day-to-speech. Its a little thing, but sprinkled through a book, it just distracts a little! Still worth a listen though.
