Publisher's Summary

One game. Six students. Five survivors. It was only ever meant to be a game. A game of consequences, of silly forfeits, childish dares. A game to be played by six best friends in their first year at Oxford University. But then the game changed: the stakes grew higher and the dares more personal, more humiliating, finally evolving into a vicious struggle with unpredictable and tragic results. Now, fourteen years later, the remaining players must meet again for the final round.

Why The Annoying Fake English Accent?

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I'd use a real English narrator, not an American faking a 'posh' Brit accent. He gets it wrong!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I'm still listening. It's very good.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

By faking a 'posh' English accent. Why not get an English narrator to do it? Very few Americans can pull off an English accent convincingly- but most Americans can't tell a fake English accent from a real one, and I suppose the publishers are more interested in keeping American audiences happy.

Unusual but worth a listen

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

I enjoyed the book, but the narration wasn't great, some of the accents were dubious to say the least! Glad I stuck with it though.

How could the performance have been better?

Better narration, less trying to act the parts<br/>

Not quite Tartt

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I wanted this to be more like The Secret History but it just wasn't as good at all, I found it a bit grating.

If this book were a film would you go see it?

Maybe, a director could possibly bring this story to life in a different way.
