Gripping!

One of the best of Mark Edwards books. Absolutely fantastic, so many twists and turns. Loved how part of it was set in Brighton as I used to live there!

The Devil's Work

I was first introduced to author Mark Edwards' work via Audible and as a result, have enjoyed listening to his various titles. This, his latest release, was a crushing disappointment. Why? well, it was all an overstuffed gothic- horror-meets-workplace-from-hell mishmash and the plot was pretty hyperbolic and downright silly at times. I didn't return it though, as I would for other titles, so it must have gripped me somewhat.

The narrator's rendition of the main character, Sophie's, black country accent was really quite awful; it sounded like somebody doing a really bad impression. That said, the rest of her characters were impressive, hence the 3* rating.

Oh dear, I do feel somewhat unable to recommended this title. As a person with Asperger Syndrome I was also a bit peeved to hear the condition used as an excuse for one of the character's personality flaws.

Not very exciting

I thought this book would be a page turner. I found the characters so hard to get into. They where literally quite boring. No suspense or excitement. Very dull ending. I actually fell asleep several times while listening to this.

Grand story

Did not expect to enjoy this book as much as I did. At one point I almost retuned this book because I hate people who make stupid choices. But as the story went on Sophie's character developed more and I found I did not want to put the book down. The end is a bit predictable with a twist. Worth reading
