The Woodcutter is an enjoyable mystery novel with a strong English flavour. The characters are interesting and varied, plus the pacing about right. Best of all, the narrator does a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life.
a page turner
This is my first Keeble book but now I want to hear more.
expect the unexpected
Author Reginald Hill and narrator Jonathan Keeble make a great team. They remind me of the great pairing of Stephen King and Frank Muller.
It took me a while to get all the cast of characters straight in my head, but once that was accomplished, I loved the book. The story was never boring and seemed to build and build as deception, fraud, greed, murder and revenge played out their parts. The ending was a nice surprise as I didn't see it coming. (love that)
I would recommend this. It's a story with lots of twists and your interest never wanes. The characters are well developed.
Character development was excellent. Just a great range of different personalities.
Great mix of accents. Great reader!!
Yes. Couldn't put this down. Couldn't wait to find out what happened.
This is the best narration I have ever heard for an audiobook. Perfect.
Wolf Hadda, of course.
I mostly laughed, no crying. The comedy in the book came through Hadda's personality, which was really well developed.
This story was extremely well narrated, and had the perfect balance of comic relief, drama, intrigue and romance - very subtle, nothing overdone. The characters were really well-developed. Hands down - great book. Highly recommended.
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.
