A great story, beautifully told
I would recommend this audiobook. I have read the ebook and all great stories bear revisiting. I like the fact that the book is unabridged. Seb Kirby is a master at writing emotion without overdoing it. He can make you feel the full jolt under the heart from bereavement, the lack of purpose felt by those who experience it, but he is never soppy about it. He can also express utter joy in a way many authors would love to be able to do. I really enjoy his writing style.
The reading was sensitive and well modulated. It conveyed the feelings without over-acting. Initially I found that having a woman reading what is a first person story told by a man was a little disconcerting but it's really just getting used to that fact that someone's telling you the story.
I loved the calm style of narration which allows the reader to feel the sudden shocks of the story without signposting them beforehand. It's sensitively done in a clear and comfortable style
Nothing is as it seems.
This is the first book in a trilogy.
