    The narrators Irish accent was good which made the story more enjoyable

    Having the Irish accent improved the quality

    Yes if I had the chance

    Well worth listening too for fans of Catherine Cookson type stories I was disappointed when it finished so suddenly would live to know if there's a sequel

    Story
    "a moment in time, vividly told with passion"
    Would you listen to The Four Streets again? Why?

    I listened to it over a 24 hour period, every chance I could, I couldn't leave it alone, I will have to not listen for a while so I hopefully forget some of the story first, it was really vivid and very well read.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Four Streets?

    The woman gathering together to cook a huge stew so all the kids would eat that night when times were hard. Many moments spring to mind


    Which character – as performed by Emma Gregory – was your favourite?

    I didn't have one favourite, the characters were really well drawn, I felt most for Nellie and Jerry her dad


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

    something that I wasn't expecting, a moment of forgiveness, compassion and understanding for someone in terrible emotional pain, i cant say when without giving away a huge chunk of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved this, I was dreading to reach the end, the characters were so real and I wanted the story to go on and on. A story I would recommend to anyone who loves this kind of near historical (within my lifetime) community tale of how things were

    Story
    "Good story but some very difficult parts to listen"

    I loved Angela's Ashes and thought this would be in the same style.
    But whilst it was a good story i found some of the content so uncomfortable and had to move forward a chapter. Also thought the book ended in a strange way but all things considered. The story of the relationships of the Irish families was brilliant.

    Story
    "Great story, well written."
    Where does The Four Streets rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very good strong book with believable characters. A book you want to keep listening to.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cathleen because she reminds me of any caring, strong grandmother out to protect one of the own.


    Which character – as performed by Emma Gregory – was your favourite?

    Maura was a strong character portrayed as a very capable woman who did her best for all the children in the area.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You can't keep a strong Irish woman down.


    Any additional comments?

    A very good storyteller. Nadine Dorries is a good writer. I was sad to come to the end of the story. What happened to poor Kitty?
