I first 'read' this book, in lexicon form shortly after it was published. I thoroughly enjoyed it then.
I subsequently asked the author whether there were plans to produce the story in audio. He very generously sent me the link to Audible and I purchased the book once again.
I am a great devotee of the oral story-telling tradition and Audiobooks make this a 'grownup' way of listening to stories.
When I listened to the story again I could more fully experience the story and the characters became more real and sympathetic for me.
The story was very well written with some very evocative metaphorical phrasing, "...the imago of a woman...", being one which stirred me and remained in my mind long after the story was told (I could discuss the significance of this image and it's importance for me at length but won't!)
All in all Barry has produced a beautifully crafted 'tour-de-force' with this book and having it in audio form greatly enhanced my pleasure in the reading.
