Excellent story...had me wanting more

I loved this story, kept my interest right until the end. It’s a long book to listen to, but the twists and turns of all the characters was great. Loved the difference between the ladies and how as friends they worked. Totally recommend this and all Dorothy Koomsons books.

Well Performed And Not Too Silly

If you could sum up The Friend in three words, what would they be?

Whodunnit amongst friends

Would you recommend The Friend to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, if they're looking for an easy listen. It's not thrilling or a rollercoaster ride, but it's well performed by each of the narrators and not too daft or mushy as this type of story often is. I'm probably a harsh critic and when I'd finished listening I thought that was ok and I didn't regret using my credit on it.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

The narrators were good, not over the top but they brought life to each character.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. Apart from the fact that it's 15 hours long it's not on the edge of your seat stuff that made me desperate to finish it, but having said that it was enjoyable.

Any additional comments?

My genre is crime and thriller but from time to time I listen to something different. The story isn't complicated and doesn't tax the brain, but it's performed well so it's worth a listen.
