Omständlig och långsam
Hilderun Gorpe är en av de bästa som jag har hört på svenska. Svenska berättare är oftast långsamma och låter som om de gör en "viss dialog" från Hamlet på Dramaten. Inte här. MER Hilderun Gorpe tack :)
Didn't last longer than 1,5h - tried three times. I am sure it is great. I love the other books.
This book does not give in to the the normal redemption cliches - just squirts them. The gore is like looking at a Tarantino movie - but more unexpected. Made me flinch.
The narration is superb.
Smart book from a well educated author.
I simply love it.
Naaaahh... not telling
YES. Nice characters and a rather witty plot.
The interaction between the two heroes.
Well... he was superb when it comes to that... BUT that so called kiwi accent. I have seldom heard a worse one - it is frankly atrocious. It is plain broad Aussie and in being so probably offends every Kiwi and Aussie in equal measure ;) Because of this, I gave him three stars - one less than the rest of his performance deserves.
Not really - kept hoping it was going to get better.
How uninformed all the characters are. "Everyone" knows that your mobile will give you away - but not in this book.
Not before this franchisee - but I certainly will!
It made me smile and chuckle a few times.
Yes! With the caution that the sound quality is absolutely tinny and terrible. Even worse than Brilliance - and that is saying something.
Laughs - because he gets it just right! He is just BRILLIANT in his interpretations and pauses - and he us NOT doing silly female voices - he is perfect. A true shame that the sound is tinny and only mid register - it is awful - because the reading is first class. The sound does make you tired. It is like listening to an AM station on radio. I avoid that.
Is is a TV series being read out loud - LOVE IT! Stars.... Hmmmm , Josh Hammell maybe.
Change distributor for the audible content! If I didn't like David Rosenfeldt's books that much - I would NOT buy them as audible, I already avoid Brilliance - unfortunately I now have another one to avoid - Listen & Live Audio, Inc...
One of the best narrations I have ever heard. The plot is witty and the dialogue occasionally makes you chuckle out loud. The sound quality is also good - that is all to often not the case even when downloading in enhanced format.
CG gives every character his or hers own special voice and he knows the value of pausing to let the dialogue sink in without being at all slow!
Please audible - do give us more from this mystery series a true delight!
For starters - I like this book. Unfortunately it isn't done justice by the absolutely dreadfully tinny sound of this recording. I thought that the poor sound quality sample you're given by audible on the book page was due to a bad connection - I was mistaken.
The reader - an accomplished Swedish actor that I listened to in other books - here sounds like a TV news reporter commenting on funeral proceedings for someone prominent - the whole time. I finally gave up listening. A shame.
As a rule Swedish voice over artists have a fair bit to go and learn about how to read books. As in this case.
