The writing full of nuance and depth, there is a lot of description of how things look, smell and sound. It makes for a very vivid experience - really like watching a film.
The narration was excellent and proved something possible that I had despaired was beyond hoping for. Leadbetter managed to avoid (for an entire book! set in croatia!) putting on a horrible fake accent. He also managed somehow to refrain from using a high pitched annoying voice for the lead female character or a whiny voice for either of the teens. In fact he didn't really do much of putting on voices - instead opting to simply read the book. (what!?) It was glorious. Every actor planning to narrate an audiobook should be forced to listen to this.
