Sintesi dell'editore

Rhiannon Navin's Only Child is the most powerful audiobook you'll listen to this year....

We went to school that Tuesday like normal.
Not all of us came home....

Huddled in a cloakroom with his classmates and teacher, six-year-old Zach can hear shots ringing through the corridors of his school. A gunman has entered the building and, in a matter of minutes, will have taken 19 lives.

In the aftermath of the shooting, the close-knit community and its families are devastated. Everyone deals with the tragedy differently. Zach's father absents himself; his mother pursues a quest for justice - while Zach retreats into his super-secret hideout and loses himself in a world of books and drawing.

Ultimately, though, it is Zach who will show the adults in his life the way forward - as sometimes only a child can.

very powerful and emotive

set a record for how quick I listened. really engaging and emotive, it's like your experiencing everything through the eyes of Zach. the author captures the simplicity of the child's eye so clearly and vividly. this book will no doubt help and inspire many.

Beautiful!

If they can find a child actor to fit this should be made into a film! What a story!

Beautiful tragic story

Beautifully told story, not for the faint hearted. I felt like I have been on that journey with the family and have learnt so much on the way. I initially thought it was a shame she didn’t deal with the gun law issue but now I realise this is a book about loss and grief not political activism. Highly recommend.

Fantastic!

I really enjoyed this book. It was written from an interesting perspective and the performance of the young narrator was incredible. This book definitely benefited from
being read aloud by a young boy, realistically portraying the narrative of the novel. Excellent work.

Disappointed

I was looking for something a bit different from my usual genre, crime/thriller, and after reading great reviews bought Only Child. It was quirky to begin with, but quickly became predictable and repetitive. The story is told from the perspective of Zak who is six years old, however, I became irritated as the story developed because I have never met a six year old with the supposed vocabulary and insight that Zak has. I am a very sensitive, emotional person but did not feel moved as the other reviewers did. Having said all that the narrator was excellent and I would definitely like to hear more books read by Kivlighan De montebello.

Could not get into it

I just could not get into the book, maybe due to the narrator sounding like/being(?) a child. It just seemed to be a a very, very precocious child. I feel a real 6 year old would not think that deeply. The idea for the book is good, but for me it somehow did not sound plausible.

Wow

Narrated by a very talented young lad. Narrated with such passion I could vividly see everything going on around him. Sadly at this time in our world this book is a reality for a lot of parents. It's heartbreaking. We need time stop this from happening in our world. Totally addictive listening sad happy a world of emotions overall excellent
