Would you consider the audio edition of The Late Breakfasters to be better than the print version?
Yes! Absolutely no question...Godfrey brings these quirky characters to life.
What did you like best about this story?
It takes you on a truly weird journey in which the journey itself is more interesting and perhaps more meaningful than the destination. It feels like a mixture of Jane Austin and Franz Kafka, in a good way :)
What about Matt Godfrey’s performance did you like?
I found it very interesting that the story was from a female character's point of view yet it was narrated by a man....and it worked out well. Godfrey is good at controlling emotional range which was important for this story in which many strange things occurred and the occurrences were routinely just accepted at face value. This version of Breakfasters contains one of the calmest violent fight scenes I've ever encountered in an audio book which is in perfect keeping with the overall quirkiness of this novel.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
No crying but certainly laughter at parts. At the end I felt I needed to take a moment and think about the ending and how the strange journey ultimately led to that particular ending. There was nothing predictable about this novel.
Any additional comments?
I would certainly recommend Godfrey's audio version of Breakfasters to others, it's an enjoyable read. Thank you to Matt Godfrey and Audio Book Boom for the complimentary audio book in exchange for my fair and unbiased review.

* I received this audiobook in exchange for a honest review.*
I did not finish this book. I'm sorry but I tried. The narrator is excellent. I probably would've gave up sooner if he wasn't so lovely. I gave this book about 4 hrs but the story has not aged well at all. It's just a bunch of nonsense. They mention the house is haunted and they may get to that eventually but I couldn't suffer til then. I know there's humor everywhere but I must be a robot, it wasn't funny. The quality of the recording is great and no problems there but the story ...!
