Ruby Cardel has the semblance of a normal life – a loving boyfriend, a career she loves – but in one terrible moment, her life begins to unravel. The discovery that the death of her beloved sister, so many years ago, was not the accident she’d always been told makes her question all she’s known about herself. Travelling back home to Lyrebird Hill, the beautiful bushland property where she grew up with her mother and sister, Ruby begins to remember the year that has been blocked in her memory.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Weight of Night to be better than the print version?

I really liked the first 2/3's of the book but it seemed a bit silly the last quarter.

What made the experience of listening to The Late Show the most enjoyable?

It's an interesting and no nonsense read. The reader is also a no nonsense voice so between the two, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it. Have heard hundreds of books and readers and this holds high honors! A job well done Michael Connolly and Katherine Moennig!

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

May have been better if I didn't have to listen to the reader make Dell sound like a dull wit. Also Fauz's voice wasn't done very well I'd rather hear her talking in her regular voice. Sorry

If you’ve listened to books by Robert Dugoni before, how does this one compare?

Not as good

What didn’t you like about Tanya Eby’s performance?

She is not a good actress for reading. She charging through the story as if she only has five minutes to get it done. No real emotion just reading! I cannot continue with this story. I don't understand why the author wouldn't recognize this.

Any additional comments?

Cannot finish this book!
