"twists and turns all the way"
was a brilliant read. all the characters were described in great detail.
you just thought you had worked it out
and the direction would completely change. There was nothing
to dislike about this book.
"Not my cup of tea"
I found I couldn't sympathise with any of the characters and it was very slow moving so I decided to give up. There are too many other books out there waiting to be listened to!
"A promising start for the fallible Strike."
Narration was excellent apart from a dodgy Jamaican accent at one stage. Good plot with some nice twists.
I've read the other 2 in the series which far out weighted this story line. however I'm totally in love with the characters and this book provides a perfect background of them. the following 2 books are great know I've finished this!
The sorry was good and the performance was excellent. really enjoyed listening to this book
I loved this book filled with interesting characters an intriguing story and laughs.
I've already downloaded the next book
"JK is a genius"
Who knew JK would be able to write adult books that are just as captivating, well thought out and imaginative as Harry Potter. I loved Cuckoos Calling. Now on the downloading Silk Worm!
"Oh my gosh...how good is this..."
This is one of the best books I've listened too,the writing portrayed all the atmosphere and character through out, with superb narration,I downloaded the rest half way through,absolutely brilliant in my opinion.
"roll over Jack Reacher"
loved it , what a good read . like a British Reacher. Can't wait to start book 2 .
"A great story convincingly narrated"
The narrator is key to enjoying an audiobook and Robert Glenister does a great job here: his characterisations are convincing and he has a good range of accents.
The book itself is terrific: a proper old school private eye story but set in modern London. The writing is excellent and the plot is gripping. Although I found the ending unexpected first time round, on re-reading there are clues throughout. it would be possible to work it out if the reader was alert, which to me is the key to a good detective novel.
There were lots of good moments throughout. As a Londoner I enjoyed the settings and the journeys taken by the characters. The protagonist Cormoran Strike's encounter with the designer Guy Somé was very entertaining.
Yes, I missed a lot of radio programmes to finish it.
I'm now enjoying the rest of the series and looking forward to the next Robert Galbraith novel.
