What did you like most about The Summer Before the War?
It is a slow burner, by chapter six I was wondering where the story was going and if indeed it was worth continuing with. I am very pleased that I did. It is a thought provoking, enjoyable listen.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Snout, Hugh and Daniel, they felt the most real and rounded characters to me.
What aspect of Lucy Scott’s performance might you have changed?
Her reading was rather flag and her voices for the male characters and more unpleasant lady characters too similar.

This wartime story is superb. So much more than a wartime drama. Deeply touching and impossible to put down.

Great performance from Lucy Scott to turn a so-so story into one I managed to listen to for 15+ hours. The story line was predictable - particularly the ending - and the 'action' was a long time coming. The last 1/3 of this book was the better part. Recommended if you're after an easy 'listen'

I enjoyed this sad story of how ear affected one group of people and brought out their characteristics both good and bad consistent with the era.
