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.<br/>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.<br/>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.
