Summary

As read on BBC Radio 4 Book at Bedtime
Luke is a young playwright: intense, magnetic, and hungry for experience. Fleeing a disastrous upbringing in the northeast he arrives in London and shares a flat with Paul, an aspiring producer, and beautiful, fiery Leigh. The three of them set up a radical theatre company, their friendship forged in rehearsal rooms above pubs, candlelit power cuts, and smoky late-night parties, part of a thrilling new generation of writers, directors, and rising voices.
When Nina, a fragile actress, strays towards their group, Luke recognises a damaged soul and the balance between the friends is threatened. Luke is torn between loyalty, desire, and his own painful past, until everything he values, even the promise of the future, is in danger. Suddenly the fallout threatens to be immense.
A story of four young people in 1970s’ London fuelled by love, betrayal, and creative ambition - now available as an audiobook.

Great story irritating narration

What made the experience of listening to Fallout the most enjoyable?

I really enjoyed the story it captures the awakening of creative youth in small towns very well and the intertwined characters are believable. However, by half way through, the narrators voice for the female characters was really irritating and in the end ruined the book for me.
