An Emotional Ride

Where does At Last, Goodbye rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 20 (Which is actually high, as I've listened several hundred great audiobooks)

Who was your favorite character and why?

The main 'narrator' of the story. Very emotional and very full of life

What does Andrea Emmes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A tremendous amount of emotion and passion. Andrea's narration brings this piece to life as it should be. She's very obviously a gifted storyteller, and seems to be able to reach inside herself and pull out the 'soul' of the characters she's voicing. She does a great job of grabbing the listener and engrossing them into the story, and then delivering on the promise of taking us on a journey.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending. Very emotional and important. I won't give anything else away!

Any additional comments?

Although a short story, this piece is packed full of imagery and emotion. I would love to see this concept developed into a full length novel, narrated by Andrea. Andrea is, as mentioned above, a very gifted narrator and I look forward to hearing more from her.

I'd rather it not be a short story

Great idea with a lot of potential, then it was over. I also prefer happy endings.

Cracking story

Not what I expected from the narration ie voice, however I've read the book and think is built a picture in my head as to what the voice would sound like.
Great story as always.

Unexpectedly haunting

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author.

I listened to this and to 'Thrown Away' consecutively, and actually wondered if they could be two sides of the same story, although it is part of the 'Diary of the Displaced' series, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Do try 'Thrown Away' as well, and you'll see what I mean.


You don't need to have read the previous instalments in the series to understand this story, although I recommend them unreservedly as a very original story arc. This story lasts 25 minutes in audio format, and absolutely captivated me. What appears initially to be a woman looking back on a youthful love affair that was cut short by outside events becomes something even more touching and sad. As usual with Glynn James, we are in a dystopian future, but he sets the scene so delicately that the story actually becomes almost timeless. It's the emotions which are explored here, not primarily the mechanics of the breakdown of society.


The American performer of the audiobook does a pitch-perfect job of creating the story's narrator, and knows just where to pause to create an effect. Excellent work all round.
