    Story
    "Sister"

    This is the first book I have read by the author. Her writing is strong and passionate and the story was engaging. This is a twisty kind of
    Story although the revelations are fairly subtle. The narrator was good, she read the emotions well, although I imagined Beatrice to be much older than the 26 years of age she was described as early in the book. This did lend a different slant to some of the subject matter, career, family etc. I am going to look into the authors other work

    "story kept me wondering"

    at times I wondered where it was going, writing the story as a narration - twist at the end was good.

    Story
    "Nothing cheerful here"

    This isn't a book to lift your spirits or cheer you up in any way at all. But it is very well written. As a UK doctor I found the medical aspects a little far fetched but then always do in fiction. I liked the style of the narrative in which she's told this story. It's unusual.
    The narrator is ok, very typical RP English. She does a dreadful American accent for one character and wouldn't recommend she undertake that again in a hurry but overall she conveys the emotion well.

    Story
    "By chapter 10, I'd stopped caring"
    What would have made Sister better?

    A less self-important heroine


    What was most disappointing about Rosamund Lupton’s story?

    Endless boring details


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Oh yes indeed.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sister?

    Two thirds of the story as far as I'm concerned.


    Any additional comments?

    A sister's long, very long and long winded, letter to her dead sibling whose demise in an abandoned lavatory in Hyde Park is judged a suicide by the authorities but a murder by the narrator. Was it murder? I will never know since I left Beatrice Hemming in the middle of chapter 10 as she was discussing funeral arrangements with the local minister. At deadening length and complete with every detail. By then, though, I no longer cared who killed Tess Hemming. In fact, Tess had become so irritating that she deserved her fate.

    "Strange!!!!!!!!"

    I found it very hard to get into this story! I kept with it to the end because I don't like to give up. It was hard going and I was confused with the whole story!!!i just didn't understand any of it. Not for me.

    Story
    "Kept my attention."

    This is fast-paced with lots of twists and turns. It's a little far-fetched at times but I forgave it that.

    "Interesting book"

    Quite a good book. Narrators voice was annoying at times especially when she spoke as a man! Good twist in the story.
    Ending waffled on for ages.

    Story
    "Slow moving story but you want to know the end"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The approach of the story is interesting but it is moving very slow


    What could Rosamund Lupton have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It would have been interesting to see Tess's side of the story


    What does Juanita Mahon bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    I like her voice and the way she reads


    Was Sister worth the listening time?

    yes
