Fun short story

Cute short story with a fun, yet twisted ending. Remarkably likable characters, even for such a short book. So easy to love Graham and hate Cressida. Ok, so it might be easy to hate the dog too, but way too cute. Graham may seem like a pushover, but it’s always the quiet ones you have to watch out for.

Great performance by the narrator, too.

strong writing, well told

This is a solid short story with strong writing and a solid performance. It's hard to criticize it without spoiling, but it's like an old joke you've heard before but retold in a masterful way.

An Entertaining Short!

This was a very entertaining listen! The ending will have you chuckling and it's not what you think will happen. It's a great way to spend fifteen minutes of your time. Mr. Blue spins an ordinary snapshot of a couple's life wonderfully and puts an unexpected twist at the end!

A great little story...

Now this is an author who knows how to tell a short story. Characters were compelling and well developed for such a short span of time to have spent with them. The bits about dietary choice arrogance and obnoxious social media behavior had me laughing out loud and made me appreciate the ending even more. The narrator has an elegant voice and does a great job with this story. I would certainly be interested in checking out more from this author and this narrator.

surprise!

An absolutely delightful listen for such a horrifying story!  Short but definitely not sweet.  The narration by David Morley Hale was spot on, too!

Definitely not for the faint of heart.  LOVED IT!!!

I received this book from Audiobook Boom in exchange for an honest review. 5/5 stars

Going vegan.

This little satire might be short in length but is packed full of character. A dinner party, vegan guests who are the friends of the disagreeable hostess and the poor underdog husband who is doing all of the work. Yes, the ending was predictable, but none the less delicious because of it. The narrator, David Morley Hade, with exaggerated accents and gloriously sardonic reading, perfectly captures the spirit of the story. Only his very audible sharp intakes of breath between some sentences cast a shadow on his otherwise excellent performance.

My thanks to the rights holder for freely gifting me a complimentary copy of A Watched Pot, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. I will certainly be looking out for more works by Mr.Blue.

Amusing little story

An amusing little tale of four rather unpleasant characters, David Morley Hale narrates very well, he makes the humour all the more apparent. The ending was a little predictable but it was still funny, in an evil way.

I received this audiobook free of charge in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.

Funny

I was given a free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

I found this pretty funny. It may be short, but it had a range of emotions, and they all felt real and in character. The ending was a bit predictable, but the book itself was enjoyable.
