Excellent book for people interested in learning about Buddhism. Jack Kornfield explains it all in a simple and inspiring way. Don't be put down by comments below about the way he speaks, you won't regret listening to this book.
Interesting book to learn more about the life of a character such as KR. In terms of the narrators, I found that Jonny Deep was pretty good with the parts that he did, even though a bit monotone sometimes. Joe Hurley took a bit to get used to as he has a very strong accent, but he could really translate the personality of Keith Richards and that enriched the storey. I got a bit lost sometimes when he transitioned to different characters as it was not very clear all the time whether is was Keith talking or somebody else. Keith himself does the final chapters, and his english is not very clear, so I suppose it is good that he did not read the entire book. Overall, a very good audiobook.
I thought this book was going to deliver more than what it did. The story overall was not very exciting and at parts it became very confusing. I also had problems understanding the narrator sometimes as he portrayed some accents too strongly while making everyone sound a bit similar.
The part I enjoyed was the author's descriptions of his surrounds and the characters. Overall not a bad book, but not very good either.
Overall it is not a bad book. The story is interesting enough so that you really discover the killer right at the end, which is good. The problem is that the main character is so obsessed with one angle of the story through most of the book that it gets really anoying and boring and it drags a bit. In my view it is inconceivable that a normal person would not even consider alternatives to the facts, so the character made me feel like I was wasting my time. But through some perseverance I was surprised with an unexpected ending, which made the book worth it.
Another point to consider is the poor editing of the audio, which lets trough too many saliva sounds from the narrator. I only listened to the book while driving as the soung got a bit muffled by the car engine.
As a big fan of this type of mystery story, I was delighted with this book. At about 1 hour from the end of the book I still had absolutely no idea of who had done it. That can't be said about many books.
The thing that I did not like about it was the very strong scottish accent that Crawford Logan had for some charaters, as well as some arcaic scottish vocabulary that Shona MacLean used, to the point that I really did not understand what was being said amd missed many dialogs.
This book, and the series as well, is fantastic. It gets you locked up from beginning to end. The narrator also does a wonderful job. I recomend it.
