I simply loved this book! Can't wait for Cormoran Strike's new adeventures.
The narrator is brilliant, the characters very endearing. Really powerful story, j.K....sorry, Robert G. has done a great job.
The book, is great, the recording has frequent electrical noise throughout. When I first listened, I thought it was my headset, but when replaying the book after reading career of evil, with a different headset the noise was still there.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story, extremely well narrated!! The mystery was held until the very end! I'm usually very good at picking the killer, but not this time!
I would recommend this book. It’s well written and performed and it’s easy and compelling to listen to. The character development is pretty good and it’s well paced. It’s not a book you will regret purchasing
Well no..... Okay so the book follows a linear timeline and you follow the movements of the protagonist and his sidekick. Theres heaps of detail so you basically see everything as it unfolds so when it comes to the ending... well it all sort of fails. Theres the predictable "twist" but while it fits into what you learnt along the way its all a bit lame. Theres no cleverness, no anticipation, no wow moments. With most crime and thriller type books theres always some cloak and mirror type writing to conceal things from the reader to tease us and this lacks that.
Very ordinary detection element in the book. And the narrator frequently lapsed into mixed voices. Not very engaging.
Let's face it, a whodunnit is best when it has a twist at the end... this delivered that.
No it didn't - it dragged a little. But it was worth persevering.
I liked the accents.
The main character was excellent.
A good middle of the road thriller. I'd recommend it and I will no doubt read more of these characters.
