It's a clever idea, a very good story but for some reason I found it hard to follow, kept having to go back and listen again. Can't tell why - maybe too many characters with odd names, maybe too complicated for my wee brain. I don't think it was the narrators fault. Still I enjoyed it and got my monies worth as I probably heard it twice.

Enjoyed this one - sort of Gormenghast meets Neverwhere. Very well narrated.
Loads of weird and dark happenings occur to interesting and well-written characters in and around a strangely-disconnected English town.
I did think the ending dragged on a bit and could have been pared back a little, so at the risk of outstaying my own welcome I'll leave it there...

Struggled to get through, the plot gets so convoluted that all the main characters have to sit around a table and explain to themselves (and the listener) what the Hell is going on once at the midpoint and then at the end. Speaking of, the ending is just hanging for a sequel and is unsatisfying.
The narration was Very annoyingly S l o w....... the gaps and pauses were long enough to fit in a nap. The story was a little confusing and characters hard to follow in the audible format but that may have been because I sped up the pace.
