Mr. Hart definitely knows how to write a good story! Hooray for all us mystery lovers. Terrific plot, fully defined characters (some to like, some to love, and some to hate) and enough twists and turns to keep me guessing. When I find myself exclaiming "Oh, no!" or some such during the narration, I am really hooked. The main character, while flawed, was engaging and very likeable. I found myself smiling with him, dismayed when he stumbled and in the end, hated to say goodbye.
My narration standards are high. There are many books I would love to get, but I refuse to listen to what I consider a bad narrator more than once. David Chandler definitely goes on my "approved" list. I am from NC and appreciate David Chandler for not having a southern accent. The temptation for many narrators is to go over the top with the drawl, and it truly grates on my southern born and bred ears. The reading speed was excellent, and his voice is pleasant to hear. The narration never interfered with the story which, in my opinion, is the point. No regrets in using this credit!
Enjoyed listening to this up to the very end which was a disappointment. Liked the characters, the setting and the narrator. So, I enjoyed 14 1/2 hours of this 15 hour audible book.
I read this 30 some years ago and loved it. Really enjoyed someone reading it to me. I've read many of Clarke's books and can remember the endings of most of them after all these years. Unfortunately, I can't say that about the majority of the books I've read since.
I am a great fan of Lawrence Block and especially like this series. I was disappointed with this book, but still, it was Lawrence Block and his worst is better than most.
Although slow in beginning, excellent story. Loved the characters and different take on WWII. Hard to put down.
First book by author and the narration was awful! The story may have been good, but the narration was so irritating I just couldn't get past it.
Characters in this series are very likeable. The plots are just involved enough to maintain interest and solution not easily solved. Very believable.
The only negative with this book is the fact that it is the last Tana French available. Please, let there be more. I thoroughly enjoyed each book in this series and really could not pick a favorite.
This is my 3rd Tana French novel and they get better and better. Really get caught up with the characters and the action. Great story!
First Tana French book for me and really glad I have discovered her. Hope her other books are as absorbing as this one. Hooked from the beginning.
The characters are wonderful, the crimes mystifying, the narration great! What more could we ask for?
