The narrator's performance, using the different accents and emotions to enhance the story.
Not a particular scene, but the main character's interactions with the doctor throughout
Yes, but it would spoil for future readers.......near the end.
This book took a while to get going, but once it did....it was a very exciting story. The narrator did do a good job of maintaining my interest during the slow periods in the early sections.
This is the first Reginald Hill that I have read. The story was wonderful! Jonathan Keeble's narration is perfect! Would definitely recommend this book.
I enjoy listening to audio books because they entertain me while doing other mundane life's chores!!! I am taken to other places and have an eclectic taste!
I really enjoyed listening to the Woodcutter. The reader was superb!! I felt like I was whisked away to England and caught up in an interesting novel of intrigue and suspense. I liked how all the elements of the story came together and held my interest to the very end. Wolf Hadda is a very likeable character, indeed, and you learn you can never trust those around you. Set in modern times and dealt with different classes of people in English society and what motivates humans.......
I don't know about you, but why are there so so so many 5 star reviews. I LOVE books, but so few are 5 star.
Loved the narration, story and relationships. The setting was so descriptive, vivid really. A few points of the story felt over dramatic. I wil definetly listen to this story again.
Really liked this book. I appreciated the quality of the reader and the narrative; the pace of the story- both reading and narrative; as well as the way it dealt with class issues among the characters.
Absolutely. Great story, characters and narration.
No I haven't but I would not hesitate to buy anything where he is the reader.
I enjoy taking my time with books. Listening and then reflecting.
I came to Reginald Hill via his 'Dalzeil & Pascoe' series. So glad I found this book - to date it is the book of the year for me.
I listen to a bit of everything. Mostly Fantasy and paranormal romance with my wife. Along with mysteries/thrillers, even some sci-fi.
The most enjoyable aspect of The Woodcutter was how Jonathan Keeble read an interperated the characters. He is top notch about using different dialects to keep the characters separate and unique.
The best part of the story was not knowing where the author would take it next. I have never experienced a Reginald Hill novel, and this was a good book with some very solid plot twists and interesting characters. Once the book gets going, the story is a fun listen.
A great narratvie and authentic english accent helped really dive into the characters.
Some of the time jumps are not as easily handled through audio and it made things a bit difficult to catch on to where the action and what is happening.You'll catch on, but it can take a few minutes until they let the listener in on that it's a different time or place.
yes, I found it that good
This was an unexpected surprise for me and I loved the book - would highly recommend!
music nut, history buff
I haven't read the entire print book, so I can't say which one is better. The voice narration in the audiobook is very good, though. He moves along at a brisk pace.
I usually side with the detectives, and I did here as well.
He has a compelling voice, like an actor. He keeps moving, so that even though the plot is complex, you don't get bogged down.
Yes. I was on edge the whole time, like with a horror novel. I was almost sad that it was in two parts, but I'm glad we got the whole story.
Reginald Hill once again does an excellent job of showing that things are not always as they seem. The villain and the detectives all have complicated personalities. This creates the noir sense of struggling for truth. Don't worry that it's a long story- it moves forward very well. A puzzler to enjoy.
An twisting and turning story that was great fun to follow. You really like the main character and want him to get justice.
