And Nadia May did a truly lovely job with it. I love her as Peter. I hesitated for a bit – a woman narrating a book with few female characters? But she’s brilliant. It’s disappointing that at the moment this is the only book narrated by her that is available on Audible; I’ll have to keep a weather eye out for more – I’m a fan. And I would love to hear her take on Harriet.
Peter is positively giddy all through the beginning. Has anyone ever put forward manic depression as a diagnosis for him? Because there are some serious swings in his elevation.
