If you could sum up The Last Days of Leda Grey in three words, what would they be?
Gripping, gothic, gorgeous
What did you like best about this story?
The atmosphere conjured by hugely evocative writing - about lost silent movies, extravagant sets, a crumbling cliff top mansion. There is one scene when Peter goes to the kitchen and nearly eats a shiny fresh apple - only when he looks again, it's mouldering and maggoty. Something very strange is happening to time...
What does Peter Noble and Rachel Atkins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Peter Noble delivers a convincing delivery of young journalist Ed, catching his hesitancy as he tries to resist the lure of Leda. Rachel Atkins is tremendous as Leda; she could be sitting in front of you, drawing you in... The audio book frees your imagination to vividly picture the scenes.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
The audio book drew me in and I hurried through it in a few days. I listened to the last hour in one sitting - I had to know what was going on!
Any additional comments?
This is Essie Fox's best novel yet – set in 1976 and Edwardian days, presenting a small cast of vivid and unique characters. I loved this book and recommend it to anyone looking for an imaginative and immersive audio book.
