Narration perfect

Ignore pedantic critics. Who cares if SOCO is pronounced soc-oh or soak-oh? Scone or scone? I really enjoyed the story and narration thank you

Likeable and believable protagonists

Good story without gratuitous violence whilst still dealing with difficult issues.
A number of interesting characters and background “romances “

Not brilliant

A good story - but really the narration is by no means the best. I will continue the series for now...

Loved it

Great performance and the characters are beginning to seem like old friends (this is the second book of the series that I’ve read). A great twist at the end. I recommend this series.

Interesting story let down by poor narration ( again!)

Interesting story with much better structure than the first book in the series (some of that may be because the main characters have already been established).

However, as with the first book, the narration is terrible. Poor pronunciation (although I was glad to hear SOCO being pronounced as a word rather than as initials this time around!), poor pacing and timing, making it difficult to distinguish between whose head we were in and who was saying what.

Really enjoying this series

This is very different (well for me anyway) and I am really enjoying it. The descriptions around Oxford work very well and I can relate to it. The relationships are becoming more known and the politics is very interesting. I don't understand the promotion politics but I have a better insight now than I did. The underlying story is still bubbling away in the background.. The crime itself is very interesting and absorbing and I like the various strands coming together.
Now straight onto book 3.

I do like the narration but reading the reviews I made a special effort to listen to anything that grated and I couldn't find anything but again that may because I am not a native British speaker and Australians have different pronunciations etc. I enjoyed listening.

A great piece of writing.

I hope I can get through some of my backlog of books so I can buy more of these. it's great to find a 'new to me' series of books to get my teeth into. A most enjoyable, action packed, listen. Brilliantly performed.

Narrator spoils this

Good book, spoiled by the narrator. Lovely crystal clear voice but she failed to pause at the relevant points and so one scene just ran into another unnaturally. Very poor
