There's no doubt.
Gerard Doyle's reading takes you straight into Ireland, engulfs you and doesn't let go. McKinty seriously knows how to paint an environment even with the sparse language he uses but Doyle interprets his writing in a way that elevates it well beyond the words.
If there's a better writer/reader combination on Audible I have yet to find it.
On the edge. That is a such dumb question.
This is not one of those Shots fired, dumb joke, flat remark, shots fired type of books. There is an interesting main plot, yes, but many others things are happening and if you weren't present during the "troubles" in Northern Ireland during that time (I certainly wasn't) this is your chance of getting a hint of what it could have felt like.
Someone desperately needs to edit these questions.
I liked the milk man a lot.
Yes, but I mainly listen during commuting and so my daily listening time is limited. That's why I augmented by reading the print (ebook) version.
I you haven't come across Adrian McKinty before and can deal with tough violence go and read the Michael Forsythe trilogy (starts with "Dead I Well May Be"). Gerard Doyle reads these as well. It's unfortunate that McKinty is struggling to sell his books but this may relate to the fact that he doesn't follow the shoot-smug remark-shoot formula.
I liked Scott Brick's reading of "The Lion Game" but how he butchers "Bourne Identity" is simply beyond belief. He reads in a voice as if reading an emporer's decree after running a 100m dash, never really finding any ground in any sentence he utters.
I find it impossible to listen to for longer periods of time. Ah well, $23 completely down the drain... I did notice my fellow reviewers giving it 4-5 stars. Long story short: the sample you can listen to is exactly what you get. I thought it was more of a joke (my fault). If you like the sample then by all means go for it!
If, on the other hand, you find the sample as ridiculous as I did do not buy - this is exactly what you're going to get!
