STAR RATINGS GUIDE

A tough, but beautiful listen

THE BIRDICT

💛 Claire Fuller has an unsurpassed talent for taking a genre, twisting it 180 degrees and allowing readers to experience it anew. With Our Endless Numbered Days, she performs her magic on survivalist post apocalyptic fiction to deliver a truly unique story.

💙 The premise drew me in and the plot was brilliantly crafted. But the characters and their choices made this a very difficult read which I had to struggle through.

💚 There’s also an issue with the narrator’s perspective. It is part innocence of youth, part poetic prose.

🧡 I would say I appreciated this book, I was drawn into it, but I couldn’t love it.

SQUAWKING THE TALK

🎧 Eilidh L. Beaton does a good job of balancing the two ages of the narrator and blends in the German phrasing smoothly. She has a soft voice, but carries the male roles well.

THE BLURB

"1976: Peggy Hillcoat is eight. She spends her summer camping with her father, playing her beloved record of The Railway Children, and listening to her mother's grand piano, but her pretty life is about to change. Her survivalist father, who has been stockpiling provisions for the end, which is surely coming soon, takes her from London to a cabin in a remote European forest. There he tells Peggy the rest of the world has disappeared. Her life is reduced to a piano that makes music but no sound and a forest where all that grows is a means of survival. And a tiny wooden hut that is everything."
