Fantastic story, beautifully written and narrated...
Spanning three generations and told from multiple perspectives, Andrew Rajan's 'Cathedrals in the Sky' is lyrical and beautiful.
The varied narrative perspectives lend themselves to an audiobook format and the author's experience as an actor offers a richness and easy appeal to the delivery.
Character's accents are convincing and the main protagonist's narrative voice is gentle, wry and often moving.
Descriptions are detailed, precise and beautifully apt - hearing them aloud makes them intensely vivid, almost filmic in their immediacy.
Highly recommended for anyone who relishes decent writing, multi-layered plots and fluid narration. A gem of a book.
