I loved the voice chosen for Joona Linna - just for that I might re-listen to some of the book. On the other hand, I failed to really connect with the story. Somehow it felt clinical and dispassionate to me. Maybe it is because the point of view of the narration is not clearly defined, which leaves me floating while reading it. There are books the capture and engage my imagination. Where I get attached to the characters and hope the story never ends, this did unfortunately not happen with the Hypnotist. Especially the long description of Eriks sessions with hist mental patients felt rather long.
I liked listening to the book, I enjoyed Julia Whelan's renditions of the different characters. I got the impression, that Nora Roberts loves all her characters dearly, so much so, that she can not get herself to let really bad stuff happen to them. Which is comforting to know ... there is good in the world ...
