Such a disappointment
It doesn't go anywhere! Zero narrative tension- so unlike all her other books. Beautifully written and excellent narration by Peter Kenny.
But the fundamental problem is that you give up caring about any of the characters. There are A whole series of vignettes one after the other which don't go anywhere. At all.
I tried and I tried but after 60 chapters I gave up.maybe I'm just someone who likes a story

A long story about nothing
If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
I'm sure someone will like this book - maybe someone who likes long drawn out stories that do not have a conclusion.
What was most disappointing about Claire North’s story?
On the description this book looks like it would be perfect for me - sadly it wasn't. It was long and rambling and repetitive, I stuck with despite being bored and wondering what the point of this book was - I kept going because I thought there would be an ending that would put everything into perspective - or maybe some twist at the end - but there was nothing, it fizzled out to an anti-climax of the highest magnitude and I wished I had never started the book.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
I have no criticism of the performance - the narrator did a good job with a dull book.
What character would you cut from The End of the Day?
I wouldn't cut any character from the book - I'd just like these characters with a strong story line and a real purpose.
Any additional comments?
This book would have been great if it was a short story - but as a long non eventful book it is dull and pointless sadly.
