Intriguing and spellbinding after slowly setting its hooks into you.
We have enjoyed the Enzo books, the Lewis books, Entry Island, Coffin Road and still found a new dimension to explore, even as we felt very comfortable in Peter's techniques.
What made the experience of listening to Runaway the most enjoyable?
Peter Forbes is a most engaging narrator and listening to him detail the characters I was totally sucked in.
What did you like best about this story?
Classic Peter May, I have all his books and listening to them causes me to take the dog on the longer walk and I drive the long road home. This story had me laughing out loud standing on a train platform, it also had me welling up in places.
A simple everyday story that can be related to by most, beautifully written. A masterpiece as we have come to expect from Peter. The narrator Peter Forbes brings all to life with the warmth of a bed time story.
Superb literature that I highly recommend.
Have you listened to any of Peter Forbes’s other performances? How does this one compare?
I have listened to all Peters audio books. This ranks very highly.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

I have listened to most of Peter May's books but this is by far the best. The plot, the characters and the narrator make for a great listen.

Peter May - what can I say? This and the Lewis Trilogy are such beautiful prose. Even when he is describing the mundane his words are such a pleasure to listen to and always evocative of whatever he is writing about. Runaway is a great story and May manages to tell it with empathy and insight into his elderly characters as he did in 'The Lewis Man'. I found it very moving at times as well as funny and sad. The reader, Peter Forbes, is exceptional, managing to make every character distinct and doing an outstanding job of capturing the reader. I could envisage every bit of this book and could not bear to stop listening. Can't wait for Peter May's next book.
