I almost didn't buy this one due to the consistent bad reviews (really bad) of the narrator. I'm so glad I did, though! The narrator is certainly no Robin Sachs, but then again, Robin passed away, and he was a one of a kind. If you listen to the sample and don't find him irritating, I think you will enjoy the experience.
Story was OK though a few too many bits and pieces so didn't fit together as well as Redbreast. narrator was hard to listen too, especially his accents.
The most frustrating in the series thus far 1. I disliked the narrator 2. the mystery of Ellen's death barely progressed 3. too many twists in who actually was responsible for the murders of the primary story.
I thought he had less range in his voice than previous narrators.
I will know if it was worth the time when I get on to the next book and see what seeds may have been planted that I may have missed in book 4.
Great Harry Hole adventure. I had a bit of a hard time keeping track of all the characters but enjoyed listening to the quiet parts as well as the parts that put you on edge, fearing what will happen next. Definitely will be working my way through the rest of the series.
A great mystery with many plot shifts and a surprise ending to the case. The narrator starts boring but gets better about halfway through. He is not as good as the previous narrator who did the first books.
This story is really good but the reader is not. I would probably not even listen to another story read by this reader ever again! I would be disappointed if I found him as a reader of the most basic children's book as I feel that would be an injustice to that piece of literature!!!
I almost didn't get this audio because of the negative reviews of the narrator. Yes, he is no Sean Barrett, but he wasn't awful. It took a bit to get used to him, but he was fine. This book was almost a bit too convoluted, but just a bit. I find with this series, it helps to also have the digital ebook. There are many characters, and if I forget one, it is easy to highlight and do a search in an ebook. Plus, sometimes I just like to go back over and read certain parts.
