What did you like most about The Long Drop?
The narrator is brilliant.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Isabelle Cook's dad's evidence in the dock.
Any additional comments?
Never sure if I agree with mixing true facts with fiction. The fictionalised version tends to get established as 'fact' along with the rest. So, in this version, Watt is guilty of arranging his family's murder, whether that's true or not. I am also not sure how much of Manuel's parents' stories/characters were true, and how much made up. That aside, this is an addictive listen and an insight into a time and place.

Some good moments of character insight but failed to connect to a meaningful storyline. I kept wondering how the detailed thought processes that were explained were relevant to the narrative. In the end I couldn’t really follow the plot development and gave up. The narration was excellent though.
