Intelligent, thoughtful and enjoyable read/listen

Who was your favorite character and why?

Vera was my favourite. She is an elderly woman whose character is written as richly as the rest (unusual). I feel sure she would be excellent company for a nice lunch!

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

All three narrators did an excellent job in differentiating characters and accents.

Any additional comments?

This is my first book by this author, but it definately won't be my last. I loved it. The characters are more intelligently written than those in so many other books in the genre. Each one has real depth. The story is very engaging and the ending isn't twee as it so often is.

Excellent narrator!

What made the experience of listening to Without Him the most enjoyable?

Both the story and the narrator were excellent. The mystery surrounding Charlie, the husband who disappeared, kept me guessing until the end. I tried not to listen to the book too quickly as I wanted the story to go on and on. I look forrward to my next Fiona O'Brien book!
