Dramatic angst in every sentence drove me mad!!

No. The narration in this book is off putting. Every sentence is said in a climatic fashion, full of angst and build up which just sounds silly when she is simply making a cup of tea!
I couldn't finish it. It was horrible on my ears.

A good story, bit slow but gets there in the end.

At first I thought this was slow, took a while to get into it, the narrator did the best she could with a downcast text. It picks up pace and has a twist at the end. A good one to listen to in the background of doing something else.

Emotive

I couldn't stop listening.
The story brought back memories of school day and bullying. An ending to a story that was not predictable. A fantastic audio book. Thank you.
