Description

An 11-year-old girl stops eating but remains miraculously alive and well. A nurse sent to investigate whether she is a fraud meets a journalist hungry for a story.

Set in the Irish Midlands in the 1850s, Emma Donoghue's The Wonder - inspired by numerous European and North American cases of 'fasting girls' between the 16th century and the 20th - is a psychological thriller about a child's murder threatening to happen in slow motion before our eyes. Pitting all the seductions of fundamentalism against sense and love, it is a searing examination of what nourishes us, body and soul.

Not Room

A bit slow, a bit redundant, but the story gets better if you can wait it out a bit

Great Story, unfortunate narration

This is a powerful tale involving characters who strive to comply with the demands of the cultures they are embedded in. Whilst at the same time colliding with the differing beliefs of others. The result is ongoing collision involving issues of gender superiority, fervent religious beliefs vs science to name a few. This occurs at the expense of the vulnerable main character. Dark secrets emerge which deepen the complexity of this psychological thriller. Unfortunately the narrator brings a pantomime like emphasis to the characters which eclipses the strength of the narrative.

Probably, I have already read the book:)

What does Kate Lock bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The Bore

Die Sprecherin hat mir nicht gefallen, da sie insbesondere den irischen Akzent einfach schrecklich imitiert hat. Die Geschichte als solche fand ich sehr ermüdend und konnte keinen Bezug zu den Figuren finden. Ich kann dieses Hörbuch leider nicht empfehlen.

Catching, shocking, entertaining!

It was not what I expected, but I was quickly drawn into the story which appears so frightfully realistic, it could have happened and that was shocking! What an insight into a nation's former soul. I could not stop until I heard the end.
