I look forward to each new verse

The story is so compelling, the music is moving, and I feel both emotional and relaxed listening. Like another reviewer stated, there is a gritty realism, but I find myself being a bit hopeful too.

Really enjoying this

Keith has a gritty realism. The play between this and the fantastic circumstances Simon finds himself in promise for an interesting ride through the series.

And kudos to this creative soul for being the modern version of a one-man band. It is hard enough to right compelling stories. It is quite another to be able to bring those stories across as an audio drama. It is still another thing to conquer the technology required to marry music and voice with narration and character portrayal to see the story through to high-quality finished product!
