Flynn is thirteen; it is the sumer holidays and there is a fascinating boy at the bottom of her garden. Out of Breath is classic Myerson: atmospheric, mysterious, memorable, commanding. With more than a slight glance at more-innocent children's adventures of past decades and former times, this narrative draws you in to a teenager's fast-track jolt into the grown-up world of responsibilities, emotions, guilt and memory.
Colleen Prendergast is peerless in her readings and in Out of Breath she is totally entrancing as the guileless Flynn.
Intrigue, mystery, fear and self-analysis are just a selection of the charactersitics of this outstanding production - perfectly adapted from novel to audiobook in an excellent Isis production.
