Ideal book for an audio book

An intriguing plot which kept me guessing more than I expected. Told in the first person by consecutive witnesses, we don't actually hear from the herione untill towards the end. The narators used for each separate segement all sound exactly right for the characters they are portraying and are all of a very high standard. The plot reveal towards the end requires a certain suspension of disbelief but by then I was prepared to forgive the author as she'd hung such a good story and characterisation on it.

Great!

This is a wonderful listen: beautifully written and read. Mind you, it's one of the few times I wish I had the book to hand. When I got to the end, I wanted to flick back pages and remind myself of the different characters' accounts. But don't let that put you off. It's a poignant, heartwarming story with so many threads and ideas. I know I will listen to this again in the future, and that is rare for me!
