Four hostages are rescued from a group of religious extremists in Barcelona. After five years of being held captive together, they make a vow to always watch out for one another. But they never expected this... The world they have returned to has been transformed by water - and the water is rising. As it continues to flow from the earth's mantle, entire countries disappear. High ground becomes a precious commodity. And before 50 years have passed, there will be nowhere left to run....

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not really. I think the performance would annoy them

What did you like best about this story?

Hard science fiction. Near future and realistic.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Chris Patton?

Someone British. Anyone British.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I think so

Any additional comments?

I really want to get the next book in the series, but can't bear to listen to the same performer :(

  • Alan Bennett's On the Margin

  • Length: 47 mins

  • Story
    4.5 out of 5 stars 6

Produced by Sydney Lotterby of Yes Minister and Porridge fame. Each instalment featured a mixture of sketches (some foreshadowing Bennett's subsequent television dramas, others mocking television clichés, such as documentaries about working-class Northern writers and discussion programmes featuring pretentious critics). This is a never before broadcast compilation of sketches and extracts from the TV series before the tapes where wiped.
