Excellent rainy afternoon listening.

Would you try another book written by David Mark or narrated by Toby Longworth?


Narrator was great. Just the right sort of weariness, and down-troddeness for the story, combined with a cosiness that drew me in. Performed characters well, with lots of different accents, which were all believable and none annoying.

I think this was an author debut? This story didn't set my world on fire, but I did really enjoy it. It seemed to end very quickly, with a bit of a fizzle, which slightly ruined it for me. I'd be happy to try other works by him in the future.

Would you be willing to try another book from David Mark? Why or why not?
