In a narrative as beguiling and mysterious as memory itself - shadowed and luminous at once - we hear the story of 14-year-old Nathaniel, and his older sister, Rachel. In 1945, just after World War II, they stay behind in London when their parents move to Singapore, leaving them in the care of a mysterious figure named The Moth. They suspect he might be a criminal, and they grow both more convinced and less concerned as they come to know his eccentric crew of friends.

I’m not sure what this book is about. If it happened in this day and age Rachel (Wren)and Nathaniel (Stitch) would have been in foster care and their mother would have had an awful time getting them back. She would have been charged with child abandonment.
Maybe the book is about the feelings of an abandoned child looking for answers. However, Nathaniel doesn’t seem too surprised when he finds out he has fathered a child. Never offers his guardian help or gratitude that he married Nathaniels pregnant girlfriend and became the child’s father. I guess things were different in the 1940s and 60s.
Warlight is an interesting story and it might have an element of truth. It has wonderful phrasing. Maybe I’m just a dim person who fails to see the point of this story.

This is really two stories. The first being the story of two sides of war and discrimination. The second story is dealing with an alcoholic parent. It’s also about the unspeakable things humans do to one another. This is what ties the two together.
I enjoyed this book but it’s too sad for a second reading.

In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a 20-something petite brunette from Loveland, Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game in existence. Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Molly's game became the game for those in the know - celebrities, business moguls and millionaires. Molly staged her games in palatial suites with beautiful views and exquisite amenities. She flew privately, dined at exquisite restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men....

Very interesting true story. Perfect listen for a long car or plane trip. Definitely a well told story about a world the majority of us would never know.

If you just want to be listening to a book while doing some boring task(housework, ironing) or spending a mindless day this is the book for you. It doesn’t require close attention either. You know right away the guy isn’t going to get the girl and the killer is going be an insider.

I didn’t like listening to the reader either, although I did manage to listen right to the end.

I fell asleep a couple of times during the course of the listen, which didn’t seem to make much difference.
