I bought this audio-book having heard the written version reviewed on Radio 4's "A Good Read" and I was not disappointed. Like many people I suspect, I had never heard of the Bethnal Green Disaster, so the first point of interest was simply to learn about what happened. However, the weaving of the facts into a novel, (in which the perspectives of some of the characters involved and two different time-frames was achieved with more skill than is often the case) brought the whole incident to life. Various themes for thought are clearly suggested, but not to the exclusion of the enjoyment of the novel as such.
Graeme Malcolm reads with admirable clarity and precision - my only quibble with the book is that I would have preferred greater variety of intonation.
I recommend this as a very good listen.
