Last Child great read
Not read printe version only heard audio version, but great whilst travelling as can still look out window and take in the scenery
All John harts books are well written. You get involved with the characters, can really picture where they are as the descriptions are good
Great narrator, clear, amusing, interesting to listen too. Would listen to other books narrated by him.

A thriller and a literary novel in one
