These books are not heavy reading and yet there is so much conveyed about the area. The personalities and emotions and lots of social issues with so little words in comparison. The suspense keeps the book on and schedule all amuxk!
What did you love best about Blood at the Root?
Plot is quite involved, as usual, but very well done. We see the beginning of the disintegration of banks' marriage. Narration is excellent. Quite enjoyed the whole thing beginning to end!
What about James Langton’s performance did you like?
Perfect accents for each character. Well done.
Though the publication date is 2011, this book was clearly written 20 years earlier. The protagonist listens to his music on his Sony Walkman (remember those?). And young flat dwellers take calls on a communal phone 'on the landing' (check your history books if you don't understand). That said, it is a good story, well-told, and some of the racial themes are unfortunately still current.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
Such a dreary voice the reader has although he's quite good at accents but his normal reading voice is dire. What happens to Simon Slater? I'm embarrassed to have to admit I fell asleep before the end but couldn't be bothered to rewind to find out the ending. A complete waste of a credit!
