One of my favourite books of the year

I listened to this book over 2 days and really did not want it to end. It is certainly one of my favourite listens of the year. It's the kind of book that I want to share with all my friends and then feel envious that they still have it to look forward to! I found it absolutely compulsive and believable. It is well researched, excellently written and narrated and I empathised with all of the characters and felt that they became a part of my life. Highly recommended.

Expected more... somehow

The best thing about this audio book for me was the narration which is absolutely superb.

The story itself was ok and I expected more somehow from it's reviews... I found it mostly predictable and just a bit too tidy... an ok enough listen but nothing about it made me wow.
