Mind games.

What made the experience of listening to A Trick of the Mind the most enjoyable?

The story line kept my mind engaged during the reading. The characters were believable and in keeping with the plot.

What did you like best about this story?

It was paced in a way which led the reader/listener on into the story in a way which did not drag but neither did it overwhelm with detail all in a rush. Of course the quality of the narration helped with this

Which character – as performed by Laura Kirman – was your favourite?

Ellie enchanted and infuriated me by turns. A maddening obsessive betrayed by her sense of guilt. This was a relatively straight reading by Laura Kirman - a reading rather than a performance - which was well paced, articulate and engaging.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Right at the end came a twist I did not see coming - a life affirming twist. Out of evil good can come. You will know it when you get to it.

Any additional comments?

A good book enhanced by the reader. There was a naturalness about the reading; almost touching on simplicity. This takes real talent to achieve. Some readers try too hard, they overcomplicate their reading with effects; they place themselves between the book and the listener. Laura Kirman brought this book to life. I shall look forward to hearing more of her work.
