Poignant and compelling

I wasn't sure if a novel based around a Harvard reunion would be for me. However this is so well written, or rather narrated, that I quickly got caught up in the main characters and the narrative. It offers quite a raw look at the realities of having children, the tension in relationships and how we self doubt our life decisions - perhaps it's comforting to know that they are universal questions that many of us ask ourselves. I also thought the narrator was very clever to represent so many characters in a way that kept the flow of the story.

Audible should reopen the Bogle-Chandler case!

Even though I wasn’t around at the time, the Bogle-Chandler case is one I’ve always known about and been intrigued by. There was a great documentary on tv about it a few years back and the fact that no one knows whether it was a Cold War murder or gas poisoning from a factory is just crazy to me.
I really enjoyed this adaptation of true events and it’s inspired me to read more about what happened in the 60s. Surely with modern day technology this case can be solved - hint hint Audible!

This was an enjoyable story that was perfect as background while cooking and commuting.
I've always enjoyed Nikki's writing as she has a way of getting to the heart of poignant issues (Bride Stripped Bare anyone?). I also like to support Aussie authors, especially those who try something new like an audio drama.

I've always been a fan of Marc Fennell's wicked sense of humour and I like the way he becomes part of the story in an authentic way. It makes this is very entertaining and easy-to-listen podcast that I finished in one weekend.
