Too slow for my taste

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Someone with more patience than I have, who is willing to wait longer than I am for a story to take off, might well find plenty to like in this well-written but plodding book.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt is next on my listening queue.

What about Gerard Doyle’s performance did you like?

I love Doyle, but he's at his best when he's narrating Irish noir (he's born to read the Adrian McKinty and Stuart Neville books). Somehow his pacing, which works beautifully when he's speaking with an Irish brogue, seems less effective when he's speaking as a Londoner. It tended to reinforce this book's sluggishness.

Any additional comments?

I could not finish the book. I gave up when I realized, about a third of the way through, that the story was not holding my attention. Perhaps I would have had a more positive reaction had I stuck it out to the end.

Liked the realistic ending

This is a fairly good listen, original material for sure but a little hard to follow. Three different directions with completely different characters.

Gerard Doyle is becoming one of my favorite narrators.
