Summary

Cameron Spark's life is falling apart. He is separated from his wife and has moved in with his widowed dad. Then he receives a letter. It is from Christie. Twenty-five years earlier, the shy Cameron attended university, where he made three unlikely friends: Christie, the rich Canadian; Tommo, the wannabe rock star; and Bex, the feminist activist. In a whirlwind of alcohol and music, Cameron felt as though he was finally living. Until a horrific accident shattered their friendship and altered their futures forever.

Christie's letter offers them a reunion after all these years. But has enough time passed to recover from the events of that tragic night?

Dull

Rather slow and boring without a lot of depth. Great narration by Angus King as always.

I loved it

I started listening at 11am one morning and it was so good I listened ALL DAY and far into the evening, the story was interesting and made even better by Angus King narrating, Cameron Sparkle the hero made me proud to be Scottish even though it was set in Edinburgh and I am a weegie......More from Sophie Duffy please.
