The final chapter

If you could sum up The Darkest Road in three words, what would they be?

This is the final part of a beautiful trilogy, which it always breaks my heart to read. It's the 'loss of a dear friend' cliche, the last piece of a sublime bar of chocolate, the memory of an unfulfilled love...


What other book might you compare The Darkest Road to, and why?

I really can't think of anything to compare it too. The Tolkien at his best comment is lazy, yes it's not based in our 'world' but it's not a traditional fantasy novel, the characters are rich, humane and flawed, which makes them a pleasure to read


What about Simon Vance’s performance did you like?

Simon vance has a warm tone to his voice which it a delight to listen too


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

There are parts of this book which every time I read I cry during.
