Tender, tragic, and beautifully poignant, set against the backdrop of feats of heroism both epic and ordinary, here is a novel of relationships that offers up subtle surprises and twists. The Night Watch is thrilling. A towering achievement.

"Brilliantly done....A tour-de-force of hints, clues, and dropped threads." (Independent on Sunday)

When I started listening to part 1, I had difficulties becoming familiar with the different protagonists, as the story begins from the end and then works its way to the beginning. Anyway, I kept listening, and I really enjoyed learning more about the living conditions during and after WW2. The descriptions were well done, and captured the atmosphere very well. I found the stories about Kay, driving her ambulance, especially interesting. The reader, Juanita McMahon, did a good job, and I felt that she interpreted the story and the characters well. For me, the end of this audio book came quite abruptly, especially as I could see that another 15 minutes were left. The surprise was an interview with the author, which was enlightening. It also provided background information about her own sexual orientation, which is reflected in the lesbian relationships that are part of this book.
