  • The Absent One

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 12 mins)

    Story
    (673)

    In The Keeper of Lost Causes, Jussi Adler-Olsen introduced Detective Carl Mørck, a deeply flawed, brilliant detective newly assigned to run Department Q, the home of Copenhagen’s coldest cases. The result wasn’t what Mørck - or readers - expected, but by the opening of Adler-Olsen’s shocking, fast-paced follow-up, Mørck is satisfied with the notion of picking up long-cold leads. So he’s naturally intrigued when a closed case lands on his desk: A brother and sister were brutally murdered two decades earlier....

    If you could sum up The Absent One in three words, what would they be?

    Would've been better


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Absent One?

    My disappointment upon hearing the narrator. I couldn't get past it although I tried. I kept thinking of a skinny little Englishman not a big brooding dane


    How could the performance have been better?

    The first book narration set the mood for me. The narrators accent seemed more fitting for the subject matter this narrators Kings English accent is would be better suited for a different series.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought the book was great, I liked the writers style and the characters. I will read/listen to more of this authors books as I notice there is a different narrator for the rest.

  • Cockroaches: The Second Inspector Harry Hole Novel

    Story
    (264)

    When the Norwegian ambassador to Thailand is found dead in a Bangkok brothel, Inspector Harry Hole is dispatched from Oslo to help hush up the case. But once he arrives Harry discovers that this case is about much more than one random murder. There is something else, something more pervasive, scrabbling around behind the scenes. Or, put another way, for every cockroach you see in your hotel room, there are hundreds behind the walls.

    L. O. Pardue says: "The Rest of the Harry Hole Series is Excellent!"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If it were more like all the other Harry Hole books I've read I'm sure I would have enjoyed it


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jo Nesbo again?

    One more chance


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    What I imagine is a Norwegian sensibility


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Cockroaches?

    Most


    Any additional comments?

    I was excited when a new Harry Hole book was available. Sadly this one is a dud.

    In Amped, people are implanted with a device that makes them capable of superhuman feats. The powerful technology has profound consequences for society, and soon a set of laws is passed that restricts the abilities - and rights - of "amplified" humans. On the day that the Supreme Court passes the first of these laws, 29-year-old Owen Gray joins the ranks of a new persecuted underclass known as "amps." Owen is forced to go on the run, desperate to reach an outpost in Oklahoma where, it is rumored, a group of the most enhanced amps may be about to change the world - or destroy it.

  • House

    Story
    (39)

    From the minds of multi-million selling suspense authors Frank Peretti and Ted Dekker comes House, an epic supernatural thriller that gives a new meaning to the phrase "haunted house". In rural Alabama, two couples find themselves in a fight for survival. Running from a maniac bent on killing them, they flee deep into the woods. They seek refuge in an old house that's been vacated for years, or so they think.

    Amazon Customer says: "Very confusing"
    "Hard to get through."
    Overall

    The message is good, the story ok. The author's reading of the book is annoying. His choice to use a redneck falsetto for a female character made it hard to make it through the book.
