What made the experience of listening to The Orphan Choir the most enjoyable?
The prose was pitch perfect. The reader was incredibly right for the story. I could not stop listening to this mystery.
What other book might you compare The Orphan Choir to and why?
Earlier Sophie Hannah mysteries, to be sure.`
Which scene was your favorite?
It would be unfair to reveal too much, but the orphan choir in the lake .... resonated.
Also, the scene where the Cambridge house was scaffolded, windows closed, etc.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I laughed sardonically as the wit was so acute in the depiction of social mores and times - with regard to noise and no noise v. choral singing. The book haunted.
Any additional comments?
I normally do not read novels that one could describe as "suspense" for the most part. I am a fan of modern detective mysteries, classic British cozies, etc.
This book, because I have read the author's previous work, was a risk for me. Well worth it. I could not recommend it more highly.

I thought at first it must be me, because Sophie Hanna's standard is usually high. Not in this book though. Irritating, unbelievable, not-fleshed-out characters, a woolly plot and a completely incomprehensible end. I've returned the book.
