Publisher's Summary

It's 1997. Scarclaw Fell. The body of teenager Tom Jeffries is found at an outward bound centre. Verdict? Misadventure. But not everyone is convinced. And the truth of what happened in the beautiful but eerie fell is locked in the memories of the tight-knit group of friends who took that fateful trip and the flimsy testimony of those living nearby.

It's 2017. Enter elusive investigative journalist Scott King, whose podcast examinations of complicated cases have rivalled the success of Serial, with his concealed identity making him a cult Internet figure.

Featuring a full cast narration using 17 different voices!

    "Very cleverly written"

    This book has been very cleverly written and listening to it as an audio book made it seem even more like the podcast that it was supposed to be. I'll certainly look forward to the next work by this author. The performances were excellent as well.

    "best not to try to resolve the mystery ..."
    Would you try another book written by Matt Wesolowski or narrated by the narrators?

    Yes. The strengths outweighed the weaknesses for me.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Matt Wesolowski? Why or why not?

    Looks like the same question repeated here.


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Added some additional support to characterisation. The stories might well be weaker without these voices.


    Was Six Stories worth the listening time?

    The sixth story was a disappointment. I suspect that this was almost bound to be the case so long as the writer attempted to resolve the narrative with a solution. Interestingly this is exactly what the fictional blog caster promises not to do.


    Any additional comments?

    I suggest the author has a second stab at the final chapter but this time avoids the temptation to resolve the mystery. I'd pay to hear an alternative final chapter.

    "An unusual and gripping book"

    I very much enjoyed this book. I had first tried to read it on the Kindle app, but found it a struggle. The audio version brings the story to life however. There are different narrators for the different characters and the performances are all very good. You can believe you are listening to a podcast, as the book intends.

    Six stories is a set of six podcasts about the death of a fifteen year old boy. Each one focusses on a different character though there are others too. I can't say much more as I don't want to give anything away but there is a twist and all the way through I was wanting to know what would be revealed next

    "Loved this book!"

    Enthralling format told through podcast interviews of the well-drawn cast. Great balance of realistic and supernatural forces led me through intriguing plot twists. Great listen.

    Story
    "Ghastly."

    I purchased this on the back of reviews. I should have been more wary. It seems that some have fallen for the quirky format, which seems to have overshadowed the poor narrative; it was the same , years ago, with 'Cloud Atlas'. This is the second time I've been persuaded by reviews and regretted it because the text I've purchased is tedious.

    "Predictable story, very well presented"

    Listened tio this book because the earlier reviews gave me high expectations. On the plus side, it is perfectly suited tio the audio format... But on the negative, I'd worked out more than just the gist of the mystery when I was about a third of the way in, so the ending was so surprise at all.

    "Interesting idea sadly not delivered"

    Poor management of the plot for example where did the real world go ? There were no bystanders in a village with large enough population to support a shop ?

    "Interesting idea. but a bit unsatisfying"

    Enjoyed the story and it was an interesting listen. I love podcasts too so I enjoyed that aspect of the book, I just felt there were some loose ends that needed thing up.

    "The most boring book I have ever heard!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Nothing! I hate being negative and I read really good reviews of this but I have had better times cleaning the loo!


    Has Six Stories put you off other books in this genre?

    No. My favourite genre. Just a bum and overhyped book!


    Any additional comments?

    Really seriously, don't go there. Will be asking for a refund!

    Story
    "Riveting and Compelling"

    An unusual format that particularly lends itself to a Audio book, a riveting story of a 21 year old mystery of a boys disappearance on a bleak windswept Northumberland fell with a mythological undertone that provides an ever present back ground.
    The narrative,setting and characters captivate and hold you until the final outcome and the use of many different actors brought an authenticity to the authors choice of format, absolutely superb.
