Robert Glennister is one of the best narrators I have had the pleasure of hearing on Audible. I will look for more of his work. the Silkworm was a complex plot and while I enjoy the development of Strike and Robyn, I felt some of the other characters were under-developed.

After loving the book of The handmaid's tale and then devouring the TV series, how satisfying to listen to The Testament and put a lot of the pieces together. my only disappointment was the lack of inclusion of June's end story and thoughts. Well done Margaret Atwood and the narrators.

The Woman in the Window reminded me at first of The Woman on the Train but that's where the similarity ended. I really enjoyed the craft of the author of this book. His evocative use of metaphor and the full range of literary devices made the novel perfect for an audio book presentation. The selection of narrator was perfect đź‘Ť; one of the best American voices I have ever had the pleasure of listening to on an audiobook. Well done to all involved and I look forward to the next book by Mr Finn.

I have to admit I was interested in the plot. after all it had some great elements. But I was disappointed in the author's method of unfolding the action. the characters were not developed sufficiently to gain my attention. the plot became simply a series of cliff hangers, with our heroine surviving like Indiana Jones. I probably should have sent the book back but held out hope for a twist in the climax. more disappointment. The narrator was prosaic to say the least and did nothing to improve the quality of the book.

an intriguing peek into the life of a closed monastery, but oh how slowly the plot progressed. I finished it, not so much as to find out who dunnit, but to ensure the music survived.

gave up on this soap opera part way through. very little plot; almost no setting description other than designer labels; no tension; tedious. returned

an enjoyable but predictable plot. the author described Brisbane beautifully. felt like I could smell it. New York and Pennsylvania were not so well portrayed. I enjoyed the characters but felt the narrator failed to distinguish the different ages.
