Fun and Absorbing

Any additional comments?

The Narrator was fine but the characters primary voice should have been a younger one. The voice artist from Emily Barr's Backpack would have been an excellent choice.

If you enjoy Emily Barr- this one Is for you :)

Rambling, pointless

What would have made The Perfect Lie better?

There is a good story here somewhere, but this book doesn't tell it.

Would you ever listen to anything by Emily Barr again?

No

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

The narration was OK

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None

Any additional comments?

2 chapters devoted to attending a Leonard Cohen concert, a whole chapter devoted to eating a fish salad, drinking a coffee, and visit a old church. Says it all.

Great narration, gripping but unbelievable

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Storyline. The plot was distinctly unbelievable and positively silly in parts.

Has The Perfect Lie put you off other books in this genre?

No, I have read others by this author which were more realistic and believable.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Narration was great! I really liked the different ages of the narrators, which I think added to the storyline.the accents were, by in large, very good.

Could you see The Perfect Lie being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

No, I don't think the plot in strong enough for dramatisation.

Any additional comments?

The suspense generated in the novel was gripping and it really kept my attention, however I was continually waiting for the missing part of the puzzle which would make everything clear and make sense thus never came, and all the way through I just kept staying ' Really?' And 'as if anyone would believe that!'
