Publisher's Summary

After losing her fiancé in a shocking tragedy, Alex Morris moves from London to Edinburgh to make a break with the past.

But Alex soon discovers that discussing the Greek tragedies opens them up in unexpected ways, and she gradually develops a rapport with them. But are these tales of cruel fate and bloody revenge teaching more than Alex ever intended? And who becomes responsible when these students take the tragedies to heart, and begin interweaving their darker lessons into real life with terrible and irrevocable fury? Natalie Haynes' The Furies is a psychologically complex, dark, and twisting novel about loss, obsession and the deep tragedies that can connect us to one another even as they blind us to our fate.

WOW! It starts slow but hang on...

It is a compelling story, well written. it keeps you guessing. As always you can never miss with Zara Ramm as the narrator. She is miles ahead of the other narrators!
Thank you for a superb story, well performed by Zara Ramm. most intriguing story I've listened to in years!
My only negative is the "f" word. I got a bit tired of hearing it, I get tired of hearing it when I'm around 16 year olds who have had a bit of a rough time. so I just kept listening because the language, in this case was typical for the kids in the story.

Entertaining + Edifying = Bravo!!

Enjoyed this book so much. Although technically not historical fiction, feels similar with so many Greek Tragedy classics folded into the narrative. Bonus is Zara Ramm! She’s simply the PERFECT narrator if you’re a Chronicles of St. Mary’s fan.

Excellent listen!

I downloaded this book because I love Zara Ramm. I had no idea how wonderful a listen this book would be. It was excellent!

The story is told in a bit of back and forth but it's easy enough to follow (thank you Natalie Haynes!) You know something happened. The build-up to who, how, and why is what makes this listen so incredible.

Through it all, Ramm's narration is a stand-up-and-take-notice performance. She is a sensational narrator (not an exaggeration) and when she has great material, there is nothing better!
