あらすじ・解説

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Survivor, Lesley Pearse's stunning new novel in the best-selling and enthralling Belle series. Read by the actress Alison Dowling.

London, 1939: Eighteen-year-old Mari is defiant, strong-willed and selfish. She has craved independence her entire life and now, with the World on the brink of war, Mari has finally escaped the sleepy fishing village of her childhood in New Zealand.

After passionately falling for Morgan, the cockney steward aboard ship on her voyage to England, she hastily dismisses him in favour of being taken out by handsome young pilots in the glamorous West end. But, without warning, the Blitz blows her new life apart. Now Mari has the chance to make a difference but can she learn from her mistakes in time?

A really good story

What did you like most about Survivor?

I have read the prequels to Survivor and it was nice to catch up with previous characters and to know their back stories. This book does stand alone though.

What did you like best about this story?

The atmosphere of life in New Zealand and life in the UK in wartime. The development of Mariette's character as she matured.

What about Alison Dowling’s performance did you like?

Her different accents and her voice was pleasant to listen to.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I experienced a range of emotions, both happy and sad.

Any additional comments?

Very enjoyable.

A girl's development with some unexpected turns

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It holds one's interest throughout and the narration by Alison Dowling is just perfect.

What other book might you compare Survivor to, and why?

This is the first book by Lesley Pearse that I have read, or rather, listened to. What made the package so good was the combination of Pearse's story-telling and the marvellous narration by Alison Dowling. It seemed also to be carefully researched and historically accurate. Life during the period 1938 through 1945 is well portrayed.

What about Alison Dowling’s performance did you like?

Her accents throughout (and quite a few different ones are needed) are really brilliant.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A story of discovery and survival!

Any additional comments?

Listen to it! You will be sorry when it comes to an end!

Lesley Pearse back on form

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

It's a good story which follows on from others although knowledge of the previous books isn't necessary. Lots of historical background and brings the war to the life of the ordinary. A touching saga that spans the world.

What did you like best about this story?

The reader gets to fully immerse themselves in the characters and over a long period of time.

What three words best describe Alison Dowling’s performance?

Compassionate, clear, adequate.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

One woman's battle, one world's war.

Any additional comments?

Lesley Pearse thrives in historical drama, her last book (Forgive Me), was contemporary and weaker than her epic history novels. I very much enjoyed this book, it was engaging and the story ticked along nicely. A few 'co-incidences' which weren't altogether plausible didn't ruin the narrative and the journey we take with the main character is interesting both as a book and historically. It's the third in a trilogy, but don't be put off if you've not read the others, this book stands alone perfectly well.
I'm not keen on the narrator but as the book is so good, it wasn't distracting.

I had read the previous book and downloaded this to listen to in the car. I was finding excuses to go out for a drive as it was gripping.

So so slow

Could it have been any slower. Was going to give it up! I don’t know why? Mari’s voice was of a child not of a mature woman & the main narrator was putting me to sleep even when I was exercising. Not the best of this author. Dragged too long & predictable :(

Why change narrator on the third part?

I never write reviews but I feel I needed to speak up and while I have thoroughly enjoyed the Belle series, I feel that this book was let down by the change in narrator!!! Not that the narration was bad but both Belle and Mog lost their accents and became New Zealanders. Belle is from London and Mog is Welsh but not anymore! It was not true to the original audiobooks and as such was such a struggle to believe in the characters. Furthermore, as they moved over as adults, they would not lose their accent so completely. Yes, they would develop a NZ twang but not a complete switch... I speak from experience here. Ugh... this point alone ruined the final book for me. I was thankful that most of the book was based from Mari’s point of view so I could ignore the change in accents. With that said, I do enjoy how full the authors stories are but I would even go as far to suggest that the author get the original narrator to re-read Belle and Mog’s parts.

All about second or third generation

I was surprised to find this story is mainly about Belle’s daughter when I thought there might have been some NZ heroics. Based back in England in second WW with similar heroics as first WW and Belle. Good chick flick and real history at the thick of it. Different reader to the other two books and quite noticeable when read one after the other.

Change in narrator from Books 1&2

Having just read the first two books in the Belle series it was a strange choice to change the narrator for this third book. The new narrator was better overall but the fact that certain characters’ accents changed completely was annoying (eg Mog had a strong welsh accent in the first two books but in this book had a Kiwi accent). It was a good book but it took me half of it to get past the fact that familiar characters didn’t sound right.
