Hero with less interest in being stoned.
Not sure, he had a story he wanted to tell. I just couldn't get into it.
Someone that didn't make all the accents sing song.
The writing was great, so was the narration. The subject just wasn't there. I can't put my finger on it?
Same author and same narrator as the Michael Forsythe series, which is one of my favorites. The main character in this book, Alex, is not as likable, and the story is not as believable. OK overall read, not great. Narrator is wonderful. Love the accents.
I am a big fan of the Dead trilogy by the same author and also a big fan of the reader of this book. I liked the stories of the Dead series more than the narrator, for this novel, it is the opposite. Alex isn't as interesting or entertaining character as Michael.
This was a good listen after the style of other McGinty books I have listened to. The narrator is very good once again and paces the story well, is clear and understandable even with the Irish lilt. The different characters are clearly identified by the narrators voice and accent changes.
The main character does not get as sympathetic a review as Michael does in Dead I well May Be and The Dead Yard both of which were better books in my view. This audio book was nonetheless enjoyable.
Adrian continues to be a great story teller and he again teams up with my favorite reader. These two make a terrific pair. I just wish there were more books to listen to from this pair.
We had a bit of a brogue at by the end, but the narration and writing were both outstanding. This is a clever, sharp writer and this book caused us to listen to his other two on Aubible. We will watch for more from this team of Adrian McKinty & Gerald Doyle. Well worth your time investment.
Not your everyday who done it. The main character is very different from any I have ever read before. I didn't know whether to like him or slap him. But it all falls together very well in the end.
Though I enjoy most of the audio books that I buy, I generally feel that they would be better read than listened to. Not this one. written in the first person from the Irish protagonist the very clear Irish accent really adds to the story. Though the details of the 'who dun it' may be more obvious to the listener than to our hero the story has a wonderful rhythm that make the actual murder mystery more of a sideline
