I’ll be recommending this to EVERYBODY I KNOW. Beautifully researched and presented. The combination of usefulness and entertainment goes way beyond personal in terms of its relevance. I hope the significance of this information is resounding. It’s also skilfully read - thank you for your sweet voice and intelligent delivery, Katy Sobey. I’ll be listening to this again and again, so that it can sink in properly.

So bored. When it said ‘the end’ I was so relieved, until it kept going. A lot of detail couched in not enough story. Druggies are boring to everybody but themselves. This I have learnt.

Hooked from start to finish - despite overly complicated denouement. Must be so much fun to write this stuff and get lost in it - jk is a natural :) big thumbs up, I loved it.

So good. The narration is beautifully paced and the character voice work perfect. Have already read the book on the page so the story isn’t new, but I never get tired of being in that world. Much deeper than the movie, more emotionally beautiful. But also perfectly complementary to the movies. That’s two perfects and two beautifuls in one thought - it must be good. I recommend.

Listening to this was like being in really good company. Soft, thoughtful, strong, evocative, provocative, informative. Things to follow-up on, to mull over, and that require a re-listen. If Zadie Smith ever reads these reviews, thank you !!

Engrossing, a voice for this age and the next, all of it unfolding unexpectedly from what seems like a purely domestic/relationship-focused beginning. The narration is really engaging and entertaining, well performed dialogue which allows the subtle humour to pack a punch. I loved this novel and want other people to love it, too. Please do.
