Reviews

A wonderfully unexpected tale of love, death and everything in between -- Graham Norton, Sunday Times bestselling author of Keeper and Home Stretch
Stunning - a book that surpasses all expectations and thoroughly cements Anne Griffin's place on the short but venerable list of writers whose work is always a must-read. A delicately-hewn delight from first sentence to last. -- Billy Callaghan, Irish bestselling author of Life Sentences
Absorbing and heartwarming . . . There are deep thoughts sown beneath the light and charming surfaces of Griffin's novels. Her books are fable-like, deep musings on life, mortality, and what makes a life worth living, philosophy for everyday readers, cleverly disguised as a good old-fashioned story * Irish Times *
Carries many of the winsome Irish signature traits we expect of Griffin * Irish Sunday Times *
Ireland's long line of magical storytellers is further enriched by Anne Griffin, who follows her poignant debut When All is Said with another outstanding read . . . Griffin explores the tension between instinct and duty in a powerful, moving novel, deftly weaving the strands of the story to create a masterpiece that lingers long in the memory * Sunday Express *
The setting and its supernatural undertow allow Griffin's humour to sparkle . . . there is a lesson in this quirky account of duty shirked and freedom tasted * Irish Independent *
Some surprising twists and turns . . . kept me engaged to the end * Sunday Independent *
Listening Still marries rural realism with the supernatural very convincingly and beautifully highlights the small, but important, moments of life and death -- Irish Examiner
A warm and funny read, full of lovely characters and poignant moments. * Good Housekeeping *
There's bags of charm here * Daily Mail *
Tender, gentle and warm-hearted * Best *
An emotional, funny look at human relationships in all their forms. * My Weekly Special *
Listening Still is very good and I would recommend it . . . It's a really exciting story and . . . highly interesting . . . actually quite enthralling, and even though it sounds wild, as you read the book it seems entirely feasible * Athlone Advertiser *
A highly original story about a family-run undertaking business * TheGloss.ie *
