Riveting!

What made the experience of listening to Tamar the most enjoyable?

Great build of tension and the commitment of the narrators to build the characters and tense storyline. Its not just a good book - its a great AUDIBLE book, they bring it alive.

What other book might you compare Tamar to, and why?

Hard to say, part Sebastian Faulks, part C.J. Sansom. They both have aspects of tension, historical events, characters that struggle with the conflict between love and professional duty.

Which character – as performed by Anton Lesser and Anna Maxwell Martin – was your favourite?

Unfair question!! I adore listening to Anton Lesser, he draws the listener in and is completely believable in different characters, but Anna Maxwell Martin was wonderful as the young Tamar, you could really identify with her. A great combination.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Why have a movie when you've got the audible book and the images come alive in your mind??

Any additional comments?
