What the Critics Say

“Scotland’s answer to E.L. James.” (Sunday Post)
”This extraordinary debut combines a true gift for storytelling with a liberal dose of racy encounters. But what really sets it apart is exquisite characterization, so vivid that the cast seeps into the reader’s psyche.” (Daily Record)

Dreadful!

Would you try another book written by Samantha Young or narrated by Elle Newlands?

Not if it's anything like this one


What will your next listen be?

Suspect


How could the performance have been better?

I don't think the performer could had done any better, it was the storyline that was the problem. Elle Newlands did the best she could with such an awful book!


What character would you cut from Down London Road?

Jo, she was an awful character, so full of herself whilst contradicting by saying she was made to feel stupid and therefore had no confidence, a less confident character could you meet.


Any additional comments?

It was absolute drivel and should have been marketed for a teen audience, I couldn't finish the book which is unusual for me as I nearly always persist to the bitter end! I would have requested a refund but I didn't realise I had already had it a year before listening to it.

Love this just as much as the first book

Often with a follow on book I find I am disappointed. Not in this case. Although this book follows on from On Dublin Street, it is not necessary to have read the first book, although I supposed it is preferable as all the characters from that book pop up in this one, and it does help to understand the dynamics.

I knocked off a star for the narration because Cam is given an awful raspy voice that irritated me at first, but I have to admit that as I got into the story I stopped noticing. Its just that the narrator does all the other male voices so well that its a pity the hero of the story seemed to get the worst voice.

Besides that, I really find it hard to fault this book. The problems of Johanna are real, and her way of coping is well explained and understandable. So, too, are Cam's assumptions and misunderstandings about her. Their chemistry is fabulous, and its really great to see a couple who have everyday financial and work problems - not the usual romantic fare where the hero is mega wealthy and effortlessly powerful. I love the way they work through the issues, and even when they have a mega-fight, neither of them just assumes this means its all over - they both back off, cool off and then acknowledge they have some talking to do. Of course the best laid plans..... But even this bit works well.

Oh, and I must point out that its refreshing to see when, in the usual "catch the hero in a compromising situation" plot line, although Jo at first believes the worst of Cam, when she calms down and has to really think about things, she remembers the strength of their relationship and admits to herself that regardless of what she has seen, she knows he would not cheat. I liked that. Because I get really sick of apparently perfect relationships in books being destroyed because one person believes the other one cheated and then runs out on the relationship without giving the other party a chance to explain. I know, I know, its a great plot device. But I recently read a book where a couple were separated for 15 years, simply because the h failed to tell the H what she thought she saw. That's just dumb!
