After reading the other Jo Nesbo books I thought I would try the above title in audio format. What a disappointment - the narrator is just not suited to the diverse characters in the book. More than one narrator was definitely needed. The story was great and very informative, but I would have preferred to read this book.
Another winner from Deon Meyer.
Good narration, and a great cast of characters make this an enjoyable read.
Fast paced story.
Great convincing narration, he is able to deliver the various accents of South Africa.
Hope the next book is not too far away from completion!
I absolutely adored this book, with its gallery of colourful characters, and laugh out loud humour.The narration was superb. Caroline Quentin is fantastic, and just has to narrate a lot more books for Audible!..
The fact that Eva, got away with staying in bed, and how the story evolved around the situation is great story-telling. Most married mothers will relate to all of Eva's decisions.
Looking forward, as always, to the next Sue Townsend Audible book.
I was expecting quite a shocking autobiography, and Steven Tyler's book was all that and more. I found the whole story rather self indulgent, in some places hard to believe, and the relentless story of drugs and excess became quite tedious after a while. There were more tales of over indulgence than a truly interesting story of his life. The narrator was spot on.
A rich absorbing book with a spellbinding narration. I loved the change of pace and subtlety of the narrator.
Another Ken Follett masterpiece!
Fantastic book, enhanced by a highly skilled narrator. I felt every emotion throughout the book.
Good story, but the narrator certainly could not cope with the large cast of characters, and was unable to adapt her voice to suit the story.
A real "curl up in an armchair on a cold rainy day" kind of book. Thoroughly enjoyable - and Michael Jayston has a comfortable rich voice that adds to the story. Another remarkable PD James book!
I have just finished Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. What an unexpectedly delightful book, and what a relief there are two more books after this one. Lisbeth Salander is an unusual, but believable heroine. Saul Reichlin is a master narrator, and I will be searching for any other books he narrates.
