Great narration, loved the Irish accent. Good storyline- I felt it got a bit lost in the middle. Bit disappointing at the end.

Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive - but not how to live. Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world....

Kathleen has always been dramatic. She suffers from the bizarre malady of experiencing stabbing pain in her feet. On her 16th birthday, she woke screaming from the sensation that her tongue had been cut out. No doctor can find a medical explanation for her pain, and even the most powerful drugs have proven useless. Only the touch of seawater can ease her pain, and just temporarily at that.

The Thirteenth Tale is a compelling and emotional mystery, in the timeless vein of Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, about family secrets and the magic of books and storytelling.

OMG what a wonderful story. I became part of this book. The 13th Tale was a magical journey of words, phrases, sentences that became living characters for me. It will be a long time before I can put this story aside and begin another. Thank you so much for such an amazing experience

Narrator was amazing, I didn't want it to end. The story was sad, no humour but very engaging. Thank you Hannah for writing this sad story.
