It was a little slow to get started, but once it gets going, it doesn't let up.
Like others, I didn't think I was going to like the narrator. One of his voices definitely resembles a poor Dracula impression! Aside from the giggles I got every time he used that voice, I got to like him better.
I thought some of the sex was a little too graphic for my tastes and I wouldn't want my daughter to read it, but it wasn't enough to lower my rating.
Joe Bob says "check it out".
This is a cracking piece of work, I listened to it through the night. My IPOD is set to cut off at an hour, and by that time I've drifted off. I was so mesmerised by the story and character development that I was interested beyond sleep.
Although a murder mystery, I liked that there was less gore, and more story.
Excellent, third best book of the year for me.
This is one of the most interesting, captivating books I have listened to this year. There are several sub plots and you are unsure "whodunnit". Excellent book !!!
i've listened to 16 books on audible, this is ranked #2 for me, absolutely great one, keeps you on edge entire time and i always wanted to listen to it!
FINALLY a thriller that delivers. Offbeat, intriguing characters, multiple plotlines surrounding a compelling central mystery, extremely well paced. Hope Audible offers more from this talented author. Highly recommend!
I've read other reviews where people mention an audio book making them late for work, an appointment, etc... Well this is the first one that did that for me. I don't think i've listened to a book of this length so quickly before. I think it took me about an hour or so to get absorbed in it, but i was hooked from then on. Good characters, good mystery. Definitely a fun book. Narration was good, and voice changes helpful in recognizing who was speaking. I'll look for more from the author.
I was enthralled with this book. The characters are magnificently well developed and the plot turns and twists enough to keep you in suspense without being totally unreal.
There is just enough violence, sex and romance to make it realistic and not so much that those become the basis of the book.
The narrator was good, not great. But, he did a passable job with great material.
enjoyed the characters, the storyline and the reader. BRAVO. sorry to hear that the author died. would have been on my radar. understand that this is the first of a trilogy. looking forward to the other two.
Plenty of vulgar language, the plot was weak. The only reason I can see why people like this book is to read about rape incest and oral/anal sex. The girl with the dragon tattoo is only a side character, but as others have mentioned, she is the more interesting character in the story. The serial killer was different then what I was expecting, but still not very interesting. I guess I don’t like mutilating humans and animals.
Worst part was my wife bought the paper back and started reading it, so I got the audio book to listen to on my commute to work. Figured it would give us something to talk about, boy was I wrong! Neither one of us wanted to talk about it. Now we own two copies of this rubbish book.
My advice, read all the negative reviews about this book and only read like five of the over zealous reviews.
I would not recommend this to anyone, and I wish I could have a refund.
