To Heaven by Water | [Justin Cartwright]

To Heaven by Water

David Cross can’t tell Ed or Lucy that he is in some ways happier now that their mother is dead; to his own mind he is more himself than he has been for nearly 40 years. When Nancy was alive, he had secrets that he kept from her. Now that she is dead, he has a secret that he must keep from his children: he is not unhappy. To Heaven by Water is a touching and hilarious portrait of the Cross family trying to come to terms with the loss of their mother.

    "Lovely pensive book"
    Where does To Heaven by Water rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've just listened to this for the second time because I enjoyed it so much the first. Perhaps because I'm in my fifties, it rang a lot of bells. I love the writing - it is unselfconscious and straightforward. And the characters are all believably flawed.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    David - because he recognises his failings and just gets on with it.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The elephants attacking the Toyota in the Kalahari.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both

    What made the experience of listening to To Heaven by Water the most enjoyable?

    I love his writing and Nigel Anthony did a fantastic job-one of the best readers


    What other book might you compare To Heaven by Water to, and why?

    Previous Justin Cartwright book that I had read-published last year I think-about the financial dynasty


    What about Nigel Anthony’s performance did you like?

    I just loved the way he could do the female characters too!


    Any additional comments?

    More Nigel Anthony please
