Love love love

I’ve read all of the Aiden Waits books by Joseph Knox and loved all three. Having been a student in Manchester myself, albeit a long time a go, the Aiden waits books filled me with nostalgia for the city, so when I heard about True Crime story, once again set in Manchester and in student halls no less, I was excited for its release. It did not disappoint! I’m so glad I got the audiobook version, it really brings to life the interviews, and I particularly enjoyed Knox himself, having inserted himself into the narrative. Pure genius! A must read, especially if you’ve ever lived in Manchester as a student!! Kept me guessing right to the end :-D

Not for me

Just could not get into this mishmash of characters and feel that it is far more suitable to a younger listener. Probably has to do with my age!!!!

The very best book I have listened to this year .

fantastic book ,could almost be fiction in fact I had to use Google just to make sure ,the resources and research of Evelyn Mitchell were a massive piece of thisbtrue crime puzzle, without her it would not have been at all possible, I think a follow-up book on her would be well received, I really enjoyed and could not put down listened to all throughout the night ,amazing editing, great narration, easily the best true crime book I have ever listened to definitely the most originally laid format buy this book it's worth 2 credits you won't be disappointed.

Great Stuff

A great example of a really effective use of the audiobook format.

Multiple narrators are given their own voice by the actors adding to a great twisty plot!

Highly recommended!

I don't even know where to begin...

I hope it's a better read, because it doesn't work here at all. The multiple narrators does do it any justice. It starts so impossibly slow, the first 5 or 6 chapters feel like a massive waste of time. And the conclusion is such an unbelievable stretch.

couldn't stop listening

Such a page turner, the format is so unique and interesting. A very sad story indeed, but this book really brings the story, and all its complexities, to life.

Get it now!!!!

Absolutely incredible! The reading and narration of individual characters is captivating and hooks you in! I honestly felt like I was listening to a real crime story which was so trippy considering it is fiction and if I listened at night I would feel on each and actually scared! It was just so well done, and so well written! 11/10
