A depressing read

I listened to this as a audible book and I'm afraid I only got to the half way point before I gave up and skipped to the end. This was when a new seemingly damaged character was introduced and frankly the thought of another eight hours of misery was too much for me. I appreciate that this was intended as a dark story but I don't normally avoid this kind of genre. The problem for me was that this just came across as a prolonged howl of anguish where nothing seemed to be moving forward and in the end I became frustrated and just stopped caring about the characters. .

Great listen!

What does Adjoa Andoh bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

I have listened to Adjoa narrate many books. She is possibly the best narrator I have heard (and I have heard a lot)! She is word perfect, with an amazing ability to voice a wide range of characters to the highest standard. Her voice is warm and so easy to listen to.

Any additional comments?

This is simply another beautifully written, complex and rich story by Dorothy Koomson. She never disapoints.
