What the Critics Say

"Once again demonstrating his ability to probe the moral murkiness of the spy trade…Seymour crafts a sophisticated, reader-teasing tale." (Sunday Times on The Outsiders)

    "Really dragged On"

    I normally love this genre of Middle Eastern political thriller (Iranian officer caught in honey trap by British agents, extraction team into Iran to get his wife) but I'm afraid this really dragged on for me and I found it difficult at times to keep my focus. The narrator didn't help matters either - his voice and narration were good enough but he never left any gaps between a change of scene in the book like other narrators do - really annoying! It meant that you were transported from one scene to another without him barely taking a breath and the scenes running into each other which gets confusing.

    A good enough storyline spoiled by a waffling author and frustrating narration.

    "Gerald Seymour is the best"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Corporal's Wife to be better than the print version?

    I have done both read and listen to audiobooks from Gerald Seymour and enjoy both. Reading makes me conjure up the characters in my head but the readers bring the characters to life for me.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Corporal's Wife?

    When the corporal's wife sacrifices her own life to help Zack.


    Which character – as performed by Daniel Philpott – was your favourite?

    Zack, he was the spirit of the book.
