    "The Dead Lie Down"

    The story line is great. The author did an excellent job of painting a mental picture of what the reader/listener should see in their minds eye. The narrator had an excellent and very pleasant voice that was appealing to me as a listener. The one drawback for me was that I could not easily keep up with which character was speaking. I wish the narrator had changed her voice or inflection to indicate the different characters. If you don’t suffer from needing to hear different voice inflections for different characters you will thoroughly enjoy this book. Even if you do you will like the plot and pace of the story.

    "Do not bother!"

    Oh my god! I have had a string of poor stories and narration here. This story is so difficult to follow, and the pacing is very slow. Although the end picked up a little, most of the characters were uninteresting and boring. I'm not sure if the author liked any of them.

    "Odd plot"
    Would you try another book from Sophie Hannah and/or Elizabeth Sastre?

    No


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    the Tiger's Wife


    Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Sastre – was your favorite?

    Ruth


    Do you think Dead Lie Down needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I think the plot was odd and too drawn out. I lost interest waiting for the story to develop. Too little too late

    "Not my favorite Sophie Hannah"
    Any additional comments?

    There were a few things I didn't like about this book, including Charlie acting sort of unrealistically in a whiney way. But the worst part was the on-and-on-and-on about art. Maybe I'm just not a super art-lover - but the characters were droning and redundant and I actually considered just not finishing the book. Too bad because many of Hannah's other books are fabulous.
