Love to walk and listen. Commute and listen. I typically enjoy well developed characters mixed with a good mystery.
Probably not. It was a little disjointed, but had a lot of potential.
Created better pacing. Focused the plot more. At times he tried complex storytelling but it seemed to have gotten tangled up.
Wolf and Alba (I think that's her name? The Dr.)
It could have been shortened. I'd have to say I didn't hate it but didn't love it.
Great potential but it dragged at times and the foundation was really badly laid. It was hard to really determine what exactly the plot was. It appeared obvious, but then there were so many different side plots that it just became convoluted. in the end it felt hurried which I was thankful for. I'd had enough.
This is the first Reginald Hill book I have read and I now look forward to more. This is a great story with lots of twists and turn and interesting characters. The narration was perfect. I will certainly read this book again soon.
Didn't read the book - so have no opinion
NO - I had to many times back this up because I kept feeling like I was missing something.
I love audible books!! And bought this one based on many of the reviews... but I have to say - there were so many times I was lost for some reason... I don't think it kept my interest as most usually do, and therefore was lost sometimes. The preference confused me and I had to play it back several times... lol... I felt like an idiot... lol....
The story itself is interesting if not compelling. I definitely enjoyed it and found the slower pacing refreshing. But it wasn't the best story I've read. The narrator is amazing though- his character voices were all outstanding and realistic with wonderful accents and not annoying at all.
I never write reviews, but I have to comment on this book. I found myself engaged from beginning to end. The story is rich, the characters alive, the words magical. Very few books capture me as this did. It's truly one of my favorites. It made me think, cry and dream. The narrator was excellent! He was perfect for the book, and now at the top of my list as well. There are many words to describe this book: amazing, wonderful, spellbinding etc. But in the end it is simply elegant writing and a must read. I don't know how I found it, presumably from the reviews I rely on. So now it is my turn to pass it on and say read it!
The narrator makes or breaks the story. This story is narrated superbly, is enticingly suspenseful and extremely well written. You won't want to stop listening; you have to pull yourself away!
It started slow but I hung on because of the great reviews. Glad I did. By 1/3 of the way in I was hooked.
The story was captivating , I was listening to every chance I could. Jonathan Keeble did a marvelous job of narrating. I highly recommend this book!
