The content was intriguing, but the mystery was easily solved in my opinion. It's a nice short piece to read on a plane ride or something. Easy to listen to.
"Decent suspense story but..."
Slightly turgid prose and poor narration just didn't do it justice. Always difficult having an adult do a child's voice but this one also had an Australia twang. The main adult voice was flat and did nothing to engage the listener.
Liz Jensen writes some unusual thrillers, with compelling characters. This story is well narrated and so easy to listen, it's an ideal listen for a long flight. Quite gripping and probably more meaningful than most thrillers out there.
