I was eager for this book to arrive after I pre-ordered it because of how impressed I was by "The Book of the Unnamed Midwife." Unfortunately, this book didn't live up to its prequel. Etta/Eddie is not very well developed; Elision's shot at a character grappling with their gender identity is neither believable nor compelling. The book reads like fan fiction of the original novel.
The narration isn't much better. Ojo struggles with even the most basic of accents.
I wouldn't recommend this title to anyone seeking to replicate their experience with the first book of the series.

Terrible narrator. The reader mispronounces simple words like peripheral...saying instead periphreal. Her accents and voices detracted rather than enhanced the story. I suffered through the whole book because the story is interesting. But I would never get another book read by this lady. I will just buy the book and read it myself if she is the only reader available. Periphreal? Really? A professional reader who cannot even pronounce words correctly? Can't believe they let it hit the market. Ruined a good story. The first book in this series had a good narrator.

The unnamed most wife and the book of Etta are an amazing piece of fiction hard to listen to at times due to the content but a clever story - the plot - imagination - the writing so skilled xxxx
