Brilliant

A totally different concept from the 'St Mary's' series, it captured my interest and imagination from the very beginning. Well written with Jodi Taylor's special brand of humour. Much against my principles I listened until midnight to finish. I do hope we don't have to wait too long before the next in the series as the book finished on a cliff hanger!
The narration was excellent too, I haven't come across Kate Scarle before, but she did a worthy job on this book.
Absolutely superb, I will re-read soon as I think I whizzed through it so quickly as I was caught up in the action and wanted to find out what was going to happen!

Enjoyable but Uneven

Strange one this. Without giving too much away my overriding wish would be to have had this story set in the fifties. To achieve this the only changes that would need to be made would be the omission of one reference to a mobile phone. The rest of the story, characters and attitudes are perfectly suited to a past experienced from black and white films. The view of a woman's role (housewife or nurse), children (teatray toboggans and japes climbing trees) and men (moustache and 'off to work' mindset) is really jarring to contemporary ears. I spent the first half of this thinking that the twist was that the protagonists were from the forties, but sadly no. There's a comfortable 'Sunday afternoon drama' type pleasure to the use of language, but the situations are so strangely dated as to grate. A couple of shock (modern) scenes are resolved in the most cringworthy way, and there is no ending. All that said, it's not a bad listen, but aimed i think at the over fifties market. As far as the narration goes it's clear precise diction with a good range of definable characters, but the nurses are Irish or east end, people in authority are posh, children speak like Grange Hill never happened and everyone is definitely white.
