I was hooked when I heard the Narrator's voice!

Although purchasing the Book originally for my Wife, I decided to have a break from my usual Seafaring & Crime Audiobooks.
Well! What a surprise this one turned out to be!
Carolyn Bonnyman's intimate reading style made me feel that she was sitting opposite me over a cup of coffee and telling me this tale in an almost whispered voice!
Her ability to enhance the somewhat eerie setting just with her voice was quite captivating.
Although I would not normally have selected such a Book for myself, I am so glad I did!

- Ray "I am a Company Rep in Central Qld. I travel around 60,000klms a year and rely on my Audiobooks to keep me company on my Country Trips!"

Didn't see that coming!

When I first started listening to this book I struggled with the constant changes in time, but as the book progressed and I relaxed into the story I revelled in all the twists and turns. Mariana is a book that you can't multi-task with - it demands full concentration - a lapse of a few minutes will leave you wondering just what happened and how you missed it. It is a book that needs to be read a couple of times to fully understand and appreciate its underlying intricacies. The narration of the book is excellent and flows easily around each character.
