Some people should not narrate books. Me, for example - I'd be very bad at it.
Sadly, so is the narrator of this book. Slow, stilted delivery, inappropriate inflections - I barely got through the first minute.
I can't comment on the story, but I am a Priest fan, so it's a disappointment not to be able to listen to this one.
Yes. With a different reader.
By narrating it.
Peering inside the heads of both dog and man.
It's all too often that an author with a successful series beanches out in a different direction and falls flat on his face. Mr Crais does not suffer this fate: his stand-alone novel is one of his best works, and indeed one of the most enjoyable audiobook I have listened to for a while.
The story is told from the perspectives of both man and dog. Who can really say what goes on in a dog's mind? We cannot be sure, but Crais's suggestions are persuasive. And the ending is - well, I won't spoil it for you, but for me it was one of those occasions when I deliberately slowed down during my homeward commute just to stretch the time out to hear it all.
If you are a lover of both dogs and and thrillers I think you will love this book.
Get rid of the music that plays over/under the narrator and the start and end of each section.
Jumps from one suspect baddie to another with minimal rationale. Pot boiler. Skip this one.
