Publisher's Summary

It's 1997. Scarclaw Fell. The body of teenager Tom Jeffries is found at an outward bound centre. Verdict? Misadventure. But not everyone is convinced. And the truth of what happened in the beautiful but eerie fell is locked in the memories of the tight-knit group of friends who took that fateful trip and the flimsy testimony of those living nearby.
It's 2017. Enter elusive investigative journalist Scott King, whose podcast examinations of complicated cases have rivalled the success of Serial, with his concealed identity making him a cult Internet figure.
Featuring a full cast narration using 17 different voices!

best not to try to resolve the mystery ...

Would you try another book written by Matt Wesolowski or narrated by the narrators?

Yes. The strengths outweighed the weaknesses for me.


Would you be willing to try another book from Matt Wesolowski? Why or why not?

Looks like the same question repeated here.


What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Added some additional support to characterisation. The stories might well be weaker without these voices.


Was Six Stories worth the listening time?

The sixth story was a disappointment. I suspect that this was almost bound to be the case so long as the writer attempted to resolve the narrative with a solution. Interestingly this is exactly what the fictional blog caster promises not to do.


Any additional comments?

I suggest the author has a second stab at the final chapter but this time avoids the temptation to resolve the mystery. I'd pay to hear an alternative final chapter.

An unusual and gripping book

I very much enjoyed this book. I had first tried to read it on the Kindle app, but found it a struggle. The audio version brings the story to life however. There are different narrators for the different characters and the performances are all very good. You can believe you are listening to a podcast, as the book intends.

Six stories is a set of six podcasts about the death of a fifteen year old boy. Each one focusses on a different character though there are others too. I can't say much more as I don't want to give anything away but there is a twist and all the way through I was wanting to know what would be revealed next
