And he is seized by an urgent, desperate need to prove his love for her, with tragic consequences...

I really had a problem with the fake accents
It is a thought-provoking story but I regret buying the audio version because the narrator cannot do a Trinidadian accent and opted for a Ja-FAKE-n one instead. If you know Trinidad the lack of authenticity may ruin the story..
I would have preferred to have had it in linear sequence rather than going back in time half way through.
Answer me this- how convinced would you be by a story set in Wales when all the Welsh people had (dodgy) Scottish accents? There is no such thing as a generic Caribbean accent! Couldn't you get a Trinidadian (or someone who could do the accent to narrate this story)
