The dialogue was hard to distinguish between characters. Moved from more likeable sections - reflections on her relationships and family to very boring excerpts from journals, again and again - they dominated. should have stayed as an unpublished personal journal of her journey with her mother.
boredom, just wanted to try and find an interesting part. then I got to the end - thank goodness
I love Diane Keaton's movie performances, always have. hate herv writing style if this is an example of it.
Was dying to read where Harry Hole began, firstly because I'm Australian and secondly for the natural curiosity for the beginning of a series. Always have preferred Sean Barrett - he has done all the narration on the non-US books - so much better than Robin Sachs. So, a good yarn and clearly Nesbo was enthralled with Aboriginal dreaming legends and Aussie slang and behaviour. The character of Harry is formed here and you get insights into his past but not as well crafted as in later books - once Nesbo is firmly on Norwegian soil everything is much crisper, more complex and better developed. If you're a Nesbo and Harry Hole devotee, then this book is a must - can't wait til Cockroaches hits the English translation list.
complexity of story, development of characters further. surprises along the way and warm human dimension. story telling of the highest order.
wonderful Norwegian accents, love it when he gives Harry an accented English voice. pace, perfect.
yes, but pleasurable to stretch it out - don't want it to end too soon.
Great story, light, entertaining
Never - hate her as a narrator, you can't understand what she's saying half the time - her characters all sound the same - she just gabbles - awful awful awful.
Great story again with Kinsey at the helm - love the narration and the characters - feel like good friends I get to fondly visit every few months. Look forward to my next visit with Kinsey & co
I am not sure why this book (and now film) is such a runaway success. I found it an incredibly self-indulgent piece of writing especially in the second half of the book. Honestly I cannot understand what all the hype has been about - clearly I'm out of step with the majority of readers/ listeners! The writing style was at times fluid but often uneven which became annoying. Not recommended, but given that the rst of the world seems to be in love with it - you should probably endure it for yourself!
