Thirteen Hours is among the top 5 most enjoyable audiobooks I've listend to.
Bennie Griesel, the main character, is easy to enjoy. However, I really like some of the supporting cast, such as police commissioner John Africa, etc.
He has a massive range of voices which he uses to great effect. His pronunciation of difficult Afrikaans words is spot-on, and his performance has a constant energy that sets it apart.
The way that the entire plot unfolds, as per classic whodunnits, is really the pivotal moment in the book. The reader is kept in suspense for hours, until, eventually, it all comes together beautifully.
Deon Meyer's books have become some of my favourite reads. 7 Days is even better than 13 Hours, though it is better to read 13 Hours first. His characters are rich and easy to relate to, even if you aren't a South African. Overall, 13 Hours had it all: Comedy, suspense, drama and a great audio performance to bind it all together. I can't wait for the next instalment in Bennie Griesel's life.
