    Story
    "Half realism, half fantasy"

    Very engaging, quite easy to follow for a complex plot. Amusing, curious mixture of cosy urban London and brutal global dog eat dog. Wonderful narration that really brought it to life.

    Any additional comments?

    Glow moves along at a smart pace where the present is interwoven with expanding ripples from the past, and the small events of city life become haunted by the increasingly ominous shadow of a global corporation. Never once does the listener get lost or left behind as the story twists, turns and expands. Ned Beauman assumes an intelligent audience; none of the technical aspects of the story are dumbed down and the clarity of the storytelling ensures that even a lay person in the realm of recreational pharmaceuticals does not flounder through the occasional chemical conversation. Whether the story is approached as true to life fiction or an urban fantasy is entirely up the listener but it's such a small consideration that it should have no bearing on the sheer enjoyment of an excellent tale. The narration by Jamie Parker was close to perfect. No forced accents or over the top renderings, just subtle, deftly handled characters that let the story speak for itself. And the foxes... don't forget the foxes...
