Story well written and tech stuff well explained. Not sure about the narrator though. Not bad,but I found the accents and different voices a bit distracting. Perhaps it would have been helped by being done as a multi performer narration.

This is a great story with lots of plot twists and suspenseful moments. I suspect it will be most attractive to listeners with a tech background/understanding, but that isn’t necessary as the relevant tech elements are all well explained. It is also a message for our times - we are all aware of omnipresent CCTV, but this highlights the dangers of the vulnerabilities that we are not aware of - and need to be. I’m going to change my Audible password ...

Would you consider the audio edition of Invasion of Privacy to be better than the print version?
I'm new to audio books, so don't have much history, but have been so busy and unable to sit down for lengths of time to read, so I thought why not listen to one and I was so pleased I did. Audio lets me skip back a few moments to pick up where I was, or if I missed something and it was such a great thing to do, I'm not sure how I'll pick up a long book and read it again.
What did you like best about this story?
The ease of how the characters were brought into the story and when switching between them, not losing track of the ones just listened to. Very well woven together for me to understand. For something that is just a book of fiction, it felt very close to the real world it made me feel uncomfortable, curious and enthralled throughout the whole story. I tried to guess who it might be but the clever twists and possibilities kept me wondering till close to the end.
What about Matthew Lloyd Davies’s performance did you like?
Loved it. Clear, great voice and able to help me identify who the characters were, even when I'd stopped listening and picked up the audio again.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Do you really need that CCTV?
Any additional comments?
I'm a technical person, and I understood the elements of the story, and was quite impressed with the fact that I'm actually listening to something that is a thriller using today's language for the technical person and the detail in which things were done were so close to the truth which is what made it even more enjoyable. It was surreal, and perhaps that influenced my impressions, but it was simply a great story line, possible, probable and frightening.
I'm amazed that in real life, people are so causal about their privacy and security. They need to read this book to get an idea that it's not that far off the truth in what can be done.

Would you listen to Invasion of Privacy again? Why?
I enjoyed the cat and mouse game throughout the book.. I was a good read.
Have you listened to any of Matthew Lloyd Davies’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is my first time listening to Matthew Lloyd Davies. He did an excellent job & I love his accent. His voice lulls you along & holds your attention.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
How vulnerable we are when evil people prey on us as we our trying to fulfill our dreams.
Any additional comments?
I got this book for free if I did a review.
