Well documented and substantiated. Appreciation and congratulations to those who've been tenacious in their attempts to bring some justice. For the reader/listener it could be difficult to believe Foster's motivations and intentions. But if you understand a bit re anti-social personalities, (narcissist, sociopath, psychopath etc), it's easier to accept there's people out there doing this all the time. It's estimated these anti-socials make up 2% of the population. So we're all likely to come across them. This is probably a 'there for the grace of god' story for most of us...but definitely a warning for all.

With a great lack of awareness the writer/narrator tells us, in a very patronising manner, what we all know. 101 type stuff , no astute insights, no understanding on a new level. It’s like been taught the alphabet at age 41 by a 6 year old. The writer/narrator puts a spin on this ‘advice’ in a manner that appears she’s made the alphabet up as well as teaching us all it. But fair play, she’s marketed something you didn’t know you didn’t need til you paid for it. Gotta respect that.

Very clever & lots of dry subtle humour

BEST BOOK. Loved it so much I'm writing a review (first time after over 100 audio books). It's the subtleties and dry humour that make this book so best give it your full attention. A clever storyline and characters that make an impression. Gloria and Tatiana the most interesting but even Martin at times. The humour's dry, astute and subtle so give it your full attention. Kate Atkinson must be a fascinating person to write characters like these. She's certainly very skilled. Great narrator too.
