Would you consider the audio edition of The Father to be better than the print version?
I haven't read the print version - that's what audiobooks are for! As soon as I saw an interview with the author I knew I had to listen to this book. Couldn't turn it off; it was utterly compelling and having subsequently researched how close to actual events this 'story' really is makes it all the more enthralling.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Impossible to say. It was fascinating to see the character of Leo unravelling as he became almost addicted to his crime spree and lost all sense of family loyalty that had started it off in the beginning.
Which character – as performed by Richard Coyle – was your favourite?
Richard Coyle was a brilliant narrator. I thought the wide and varied use of regional accents to distinguish between the characters was excellent.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It's shocking in the cool and meticulous planning that went into the crimes and yet the strength of the bond between the brothers is inspiring, forged as it was through shared torment.
Any additional comments?
An addictive novel that stays with you long after you have listened to it.
