What did you love best about The Apartment?
The protagonists are a married couple with a small daughter who live in Capetown and are recovering from a break-in at their home. Their decision to do a house-swap with a Paris couple seems like the perfect much needed vacation on a budget. These are well-drawn characters who we really get to know throughout the story, but that doesn't mean they are always good people all the time- a. It naive, a bit unstable, but that's what keeps things interesting.
Have you listened to any of Nicholas Guy Smith and Fiona Hardingham ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes, and both narrators are always good. I especially enjoy Fiona Hardingham.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There were some great moments when the couple is in Paris. Very atmospheric and mysterious, between the apartment and the general ambiance of the city in winter.
Any additional comments?
Shocking revelations from alternating POV characters really serves to emphasize the relationship between two people who probably don't know each other as well as they think. Overall a great read and kept me engaged with creepy traditional horror aspects along with good characterization- I recommend this one!

Who cares? The Apartment is a creepy slow burn of a book and a superb production. It's the kind of book that really gets under the reader's skin - just read the other reviews- it's as though we listened to different books! No, the Apartment is not perfect, I wanted a bit more padding, but I enjoyed every minute of it.
