Would you consider the audio edition of Blood Rush to be better than the print version?
I have not read the print version; but since Imogen Church narrates the audio, nothing could be better. I discovered Helen Black because Imogen Church does the narration. I am addicted to Imogen Church, and I love thrillers, so I search for thrillers narrated by her. This was a good find.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Blood Rush?
Maybe the scene in the crack house? This was a very atmospheric, scene heavy novel, so there were many.
What does Imogen Church bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Thanks for giving me a chance to rhapsodize about my favorite narrator! She is able to embody each character with their unique voice, without drawing attention to the transition. Her velvety voice draws one inside the story, and is never distracting in itself. Her timing is always flawless. I find it very difficult to wean myself off of Imogen Church when I want to listen to a book narrated by someone else. I have listened to four Imogen Church narrations in a row. My definition of bliss is to be read aloud to by Imogen Church.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Sorry, it would be a spoiler.
Any additional comments?
This is a fascinating glimpse inside the world of girl gangs, poverty and adolescent angst.
I hated this from the minute I started listening - the gang fight - the awful speech - etc. but when I got to the part where the heroine/solicitor was not capable of keeping staff because she was so untidy and disorganised - and then when we caught her trying to make a 360 degree circuit/twirl on her secretary's office chair, I really decide that I had better things to do.
I bought this based on quite good reviews - but my goodness, I found it abysmal in both characters AND writing.

What would have made Blood Rush better?
Difficult to say. The book was awful from beginning to end with a very weak storyline and not particularly well narrated.
Has Blood Rush put you off other books in this genre?
Would you be willing to try another one of Imogen Church’s performances?
Don't think so
What character would you cut from Blood Rush?
The pathetic do-good solicitor.
