I found this book bounced around a bit and I had to rewind it a fair bit which was a tad annoying. I also found the narrator a little brash for want of a better word.
Tell us about yourself! I love to read or listen( audio), nothing abridged ,I want every word the author penned that is what I want.
Very unexpected plot
The Shack . The devotion of the parent in getting answers to what happened the their child.
Her performance was wonderful ,she made the story come alive. I'd like to hear more from her.
Once I understood what was happening, yes it was emotional.
This is a must read .hope to read more from this author.
Yes, but too long
Too much time was spent on feelings. The main characters went on and on about their feelings and then repeat the same feelings again and again.
The main story was okay, nothing really unexpected but not boring. Also, I thought the back stories could have been better. The ending was a bit strange. It started to wind down as expected but then suddenly picked up as though this was book one of a series with no prior indication that this would be the case. I don't know if I'll read another one by this author. I'm still deciding.
I liked the characters in this story and the way the story unwound. If I listened again, I'm sure I would pick up on things I missed.
I listened to this while commuting, and found that I was hanging onto the steering wheel as if I was being chased! Great prose.
Good use of voices and temporal qualities to give you the feeling of the environment.
Yes, this was a well structured story told rom the point of view of, at first encounter, four unconnected characters whose connections to the main mystery of boy in the suitcase became clear only very gradually.
It was quite nail-biting towards the end.
No. This was the disappointing part of the listening experience. This narrator really irritated me. There was a lot of over-dramatisation in her reading and a sort of sarcasm.
Suspense until the end - many twists and turns keep you listening until the last word.
I adore English mysteries!!! I love nothing better than hearing a British accent in my earphones!
Better narrator. Far less angst on the part of the heroine. Why all the hand -wringing about whether she sould try to help a helpless child? Isn't that a "no brainer?"
This was my first one. It was an interesting story idea.
The narration was so painful, I almost stopped listening in the middle. It really set my teeth on edge. Maybe it played a part in my irratation with the protagonist's angst.
The narration of this book is done by a woman who reads way to fast & at a high pitch that is very annoying. After 30 minutes, I had to turn it off & take a break as the voice was too shrill & way to fast
More organized characters
The problem may have been in the translation. The characters just pop into the story with either too much info or not enough. It was very hard to keep track. Also, the story line just seems crass to me. You find a kid in a suitcase, you take to the police station. End of story.
