A beautifully written book. The lack of character names was disconcerting at first, however as the book picked up the pace this ceased to matter and the characters came alive in their own right. It’s a wonderful portrayal of a society under siege and of the coercive forces that govern each persons life. They are controlled from within the family, by their friends and neighbours and by the more sinister renouncers and state forces. As the story develops I realised that much of this control, especially by the family and friends, is an attempt to safeguard their lives. The narrator in the book, looking back at the events and at her reactions to those events, gives a powerful understanding of the minds of teenagers and the sometimes opaque strategies they employ in their efforts to get by and protect themselves. The end of the book gives a most beautiful and delicately rendered of picture of family relationships.
I highly recommend this book and it was superbly read (in a gorgeous accent) by Brid Brennan.

Taken on Trust - Terry Waite

Listened to this during Covid - 19 ‘Lockdown’.
It is written and read at a wonderful pace that causes you to ponder time, could mistakenly be taken as slow but in the context it is perfect. The events throughout the book are the backdrop of news headlines from my earlier years and names and locations caused me many memories too.
I feel like I am in awe of Mr Waites humanity and anti violence stance, he is a man of great qualities and of spoken fragility too, to hold him in high esteem would perhaps embarrass such a modest and humble person. This book has made me take stock of my life, to enjoy my liberty even during ‘lockdown’ that is really a burden in reality, to value more the simple things we take for granted and to love more the people around me.
Mr Waite stands 6ft 7ins or 2 metres tall and his weapon to take on the world is LOVE, amazing man, thank you Terry Waite....

A fantastic service

I would greatly recommend Audible.
Despite being an avid reader I often find it difficult to manage the time to read each day - a daily 45 mins to an hour after work and putting my kids to bed doesn’t always cut it with an engrossing novel. The Audible experience has certainly helped me with this.
I had only dabbled in audio books (mainly CDs) before but the production quality of stories available on Audible from the atmospheric productions of Dirk Maggs to lone narrators such as Simon Vance and William Hope have been great companions as I take a walk or work.
I love how you can listen to more than one book at a time and still have the exact moment you left off be recalled when returning.
It is a relatively cheap service - I am on the one book a month tier (although I always seem to pick up more via the sales).
There are also great ‘free podcasts’ such as Stewart Copeland (drummer of the Police fame) with his tales about his father’s background as a spy and Michael Caine’s ‘Heist’ series.
Each day there is a title for either STG£1.99 or £2.99 and the sales are fantastic for accruing a shelf full of tales to dive into.
