I'm listening to PW at my catering job. It's rather dull and I have a lot of time where I'd otherwise just be sitting inside of my own head, musing. I have to say, I only grabbed PW because it was promo'd on the front page, but I am really, ...

Absolutely LOVE this story and I'm so glad that I heard it as an audiobook as opposed to reading a physical book. I'm sure I would've never figured out what all of the different voices and accents really sound like on my own. Peter Chowney did such a fantastic job ...

I thoroughly enjoyed Paraffin Winter! The story is well crafted and expertly delivered by the author. The complexity of the story and characters is far beyond what I expected. I highly recommend this audiobook. I'm a US resident and to others in the US I would say it took me ...

Paraffin Winter is one of my favourite e-books on Podiobooks (and elsewhere). The story is well built with interesting characters and full of details of the early 1960s.

Superb narration and audio quality. Great writing, I really felt transported into 1960's England. I did think the pacing was a bit slow at times though. It was a long book and I'm guessing there were some things that could have been cut in order to pick up the pace ...

I loved this book! I felt like I was actually there, in the '60's , in England, even though I've never had the pleasure of experiencing. Ronnie and Jenny were great fully fleshed out characters. I also really appreciated the background on English politics and Communisim. I found it fascinating! ...
