Ruth Rendell gave voice to people to the marginalised and criminal to make them human - and to everybody else. this story (also) covers addiction (here of chocolate). the reading performence is astonishing - no less. slighty different voices for all characters and different volume and speed in different situations
this was a disappointment, it was really quite tedious. I didnt care about any of the characters, and there wasnt much of a plot.

I bought this audio book because of the author's reputation. It turns out to be a tedious, overly long epic. The main challenge is keeping awake. Good for insomniacs.

What would have made Portobello better?
Where to start. I couldn't invest in any of the characters they were unbelievable. The story was dull. The narrator struggled to make this turkey sound interesting and he's one of the best. The plot meandered along apparently going nowhere.
Has Portobello put you off other books in this genre?
Not at all
What about Ric Jerrom’s performance did you like?
He wasn't up to his usual excellence but that was understandable this story and its characters were one dimensional and bland.
What character would you cut from Portobello?
All of them
Any additional comments?
If you have trouble sleeping this audio book will send you straight to sleep.
