What made the experience of listening to This Must Be the Place the most enjoyable?
Maggie Farrell's skilful building of a story and its changes of time and place.
What was one of the most memorable moments of This Must Be the Place?
Bitter-sweet moments when the protagonists were stopped in their tracks by a memory.
What didn’t you like about Graham Rowat and Saskia Maarleveld ’s performance?
I find it intensely irritating when narrators can't pronounce quite simple foreign words properly. SK is clearly neither British nor American and I think one of either of those nationalities would have been better. 'Maman' and so many other instances of mispoken words.This really spoiled my enjoyment of a good story, my attention often being taken by irritating narration.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me sad for all the chararcters who seemed so lost most of the time.
Any additional comments?
I wish that Maggie Farrell would lose her maddening habit of making long lists of words, sometimes describing the same thing. Perhaps this is her signature?

I truly enjoyed this - and loved the female narrator. Something about the male narrator's reading voice very much annoyed me, though, which is why I can only award three stars for performance.
