Val McDermid, yes. Gerard Doyle - If I had a choice between shoving a meat thermometer into my eardrum or listening to Gerard Doyle narrate another book, I would, without hesitation, choose the former.
It's hard to say as I'm still trying to slog through the audio. I love the writer and this series, and this book is probably excellent. However, I just paid nearly $25 to listen to what is quite possibly the worst orator of all history.
Offer me a paid vacation in Cyprus with my own personal pool boy and I would probably still refuse.
If... you don't mind.... listening... to someone... who speaks in monotone.... and always seems... as if they're not quite done with.... a sentence?
I'm new to audible and find it quite amazingly expensive. I'm not thrilled about having paid $25 for a book I can barely stand to listen to. Considering cancelling my subscription.
Someone who hates the main character.
If MacBride didn't so obviously detest the main character of his own book, he might have provided an ending that wasn't so freakin depressing.
All of them. Ian Hanmore is amazing.
The entire ending?
I love Stuart MacBride. I appreciate his dark sense of humor. I like the way he tells stories and builds his characters. I like his characters so much, in fact, that the ending of this book really surprised me in a bad way. Was MacBride just in the mood to destroy something when he wrote this book? He seems to dislike the main character. A lot.
