a actual story line with an narrator that does not put you to sleep
not sure anyone could have made it a story with interest
nope - nothing redeemable about it including the fact i couldn't return it and wasted a credit.
Audible's return policy is NOT true - it does NOT work when you try to return so be weary of this book as to it is just plains horrid.
It is easy to understand why this German suspense novel is an international hit. It is a page turner (or whatever the audio equivalent is called). It has a bit of everything - sex and violence and sort-of necrophilia. But the titillation is all pretty mild - nothing gratuitous or shocking as that of the many other recent Nordic sensations which explains why others regret that it can't be compared with Stieg Larssen's novels.
The narrator has a flat American accent but renders the occasional German (mostly names) with precision. It works most of the time but sometimes when the plot hits one of its many convoluted twists he sounds a bit naive (as if he is relating a fairy tale?). The story isn't much of a fairy tale but the author does owe some debt to other works of German literature for the theme of small town narrow-mindedness and conformism.
What makes Snow White Must Die worth the long listen is in the human relationships of the central characters - the accused - Tobias, his father, the wild teenager Amelie, and the honorable but very human detective partners, Pia and Oliver. Each of these is an attractive, sympathetic character, and I will happily come back to visit with the police officers.
P.S. It is too bad that American readers have met Pia and Oliver in book four of the series. Perhaps the publisher will give us the earlier ones in order so that we can catch up.
1st book by this author and very much enjoyed. Like the detail and the character development.
Not quite the edge of my seat but liked the way the story unfolded.
Would use the same name.
it took me a bit to get into the story because the names were difficult; keeping track of who the characters were. But the story was very good kept me in suspense until the end and there were a few times I thought I had figured it out but was only partly correct. definitely worth the read. I really enjoyed the narrator.
This is the first Nele Neuhaus book I've listened to. I got it during a 2/1 credit sale and was surprised to find myself totally engulfed with the story. Neuhaus did a great job of creating well rounded characters that you really grow to like. I have already purchased and downloaded the next in the series. If you enjoy police procedurals, then this book is for you.
I liked the story and enjoyed the settings, twists and turns. I was not impressed with the performance, due to the dreary voices for some of the characters and situations. The parts where he used regular voices was much more enjoyable. But still enjoyed the book overall.
A mystery drama that actually lives up to the genre. Multiple points of view, exciting triangles, interesting characters. The convicted will have u on their side. Storyline touches on multiple topics that show how close we all are to committing the ultimate crime.
This was a very good story. I enjoyed the characters but did have a hard time keeping them straight from time to time. It was suspenseful and kept me guessing the whole time
yes, the title leads you to think of something else.
when the town realize they were just as much at fault as the accuser
all of them. didn't realize
yes, the silent hand of the person who didn't talk to people much.
