Audible Editor Reviews

The immensely popular Sunday Times' best-selling author Adele Parks is back with her latest release audiobook, The State We're In, charmingly narrated by the equally as popular Antonia Beamish. This is a delightful and moving story of two strangers sitting next to each other on a plane who both gain life-changing wisdom from each other as they travel across the Atlantic. This story reminds us of the fateful strangers who pop onto our path, often for the briefest of moments but who ultimately change the course of our lives forever. This story is the perfect holiday listen.

Slow slow slow

Very slow book. Might be better as actual book as you can skip the laboured descriptive passages. Could have been quite a decent story if it had skipped along quickly.
