Not a writer, a writer wannabe, editor, lit maj, or pretend literary critic. Just an avid reader/listener. My ratings are opinion only.
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.
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.
Surprising, suspenseful and clever
Great book - very surprising, suspenseful and very well written. This is the kind of book I always want to find - couldn't stop listening.
Wonderful performance - deep and rich
This is an unusual mystery. Great story keeps you guessing at all time. Great character development, well written. Well worth your time.
I was influenced to buy this book having read the reviews below. It is a wonderful book, incredibly well scoped. characters superbly drawn and presented, the Narrator complements the book,excellent; well done that man
I can find nothing to critisise. I found myself reading this book at 2.30 AM, hard to put down. I will look for both the author and the narrator in future.
Five stars all round, the only way to rate this book
