The narrator's accent was grating and distracting. Once you get past the accent the story is beautifully told though. Wonderfully descriptive text.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Bricks That Built the Houses to be better than the print version?
Yes - Kate's reading is part of the lyrical mastery of this production. Her delivery and character portrayal are just outstanding.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Pete's birthday at the pub, becasue it is the perfect climax to the setup.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
So many moments that moved me! Her character portraits are mu favourite thing about her writing.
Any additional comments?
I honestly think that listening to Kate Tempest is like what it must have been listening to Shakespear at the time - her word economy, and detailed picture painting is phenomenal. This is an unpredictable and exciting first novel which I inhaled as it was so good.

I have been obsessed with this book ever since listening to “everybody down” it feels like my understanding has been has been expanded and I have seen the same scenes from different angles. Anything by Kate is gold and the fact she reads it herself makes it so much better.
