Publisher's Summary

Charlie meets everyone - but only once. You might meet him in a hospital, in a war zone, or at the scene of traffic accident. Then again, you might meet him at the North Pole - Charlie gets everywhere. Sometimes he is sent as a courtesy, sometimes as a warning. Either way, this is going to be the most important meeting of your life.
The End of the Day is the stunning new story from Richard and Judy Book Club author Claire North: the voice behind the word-of-mouth best-seller The First Fifteen Lives of Harry August.

Such a disappointment

It doesn't go anywhere! Zero narrative tension- so unlike all her other books. Beautifully written and excellent narration by Peter Kenny.
But the fundamental problem is that you give up caring about any of the characters. There are A whole series of vignettes one after the other which don't go anywhere. At all.
I tried and I tried but after 60 chapters I gave up.maybe I'm just someone who likes a story

A long story about nothing

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

I'm sure someone will like this book - maybe someone who likes long drawn out stories that do not have a conclusion.

What was most disappointing about Claire North’s story?

On the description this book looks like it would be perfect for me - sadly it wasn't. It was long and rambling and repetitive, I stuck with despite being bored and wondering what the point of this book was - I kept going because I thought there would be an ending that would put everything into perspective - or maybe some twist at the end - but there was nothing, it fizzled out to an anti-climax of the highest magnitude and I wished I had never started the book.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I have no criticism of the performance - the narrator did a good job with a dull book.

What character would you cut from The End of the Day?

I wouldn't cut any character from the book - I'd just like these characters with a strong story line and a real purpose.

Any additional comments?

This book would have been great if it was a short story - but as a long non eventful book it is dull and pointless sadly.
