Would you try another book written by Barbara Erskine or narrated by Rula Lenska?

After this book I would not touch another from this author. Rula Lenska does a good job with the material provided.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

My first reaction about this book was how did it get published ? It demonstrates that very little research was undertaken. I had no idea the area around Colchester was an uninhibited wilderness and I am not sure the writer paid more than a brief visit to the city or museum . She mentions the Boudican revolt and Roman occupation but fails to understand the basics of what went on in those days and the hIstorical gaffs are HUGE. There are so many plot holes as the narrative clumsily unfolds, the story is predictable and you feel yourself groaning as the book gradually dies. I suspect an editor has tidied it up a fair bit but it lacks suspense, please publishers, look carefully at the material before you publish.

Midnight is a lonely place

Found this story very boring, it went on and on and on in the same vein, could not listen to the second half, have better things to do with 7 hours of my life. Maybe a different narrator would make all the difference !
