    One ordinary winter afternoon on a snowy island, Anders and Cecilia take their sixyearold daughter Maja across the ice to visit the lighthouse in the middle of the frozen channel. While the couple explore the lighthouse, Maja disappears - either into thin air or under thin ice - leaving not even a footprint in the snow. Two years later, alone and more or less permanently drunk, Anders returns to the island to regroup. He slowly realizes that people are not telling him all they know....

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Harbor to be better than the print version?

    I rarely if ever write reviews since most of what I read or listen to is not worth the time. This story was however, a wonderful surprise. In addition to having quite a unique and intriguing concept, the execution was excellent as well as the narration.


    What did you like best about this story?

    An old idea was given a new perspective and that concept was developed very well. Additionally, it provided me with a very interesting view of life in Sweden.


    What does Julian Rhind-Tutt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This narrator is by far the best I've heard out of the dozens of audiobooks I've listened to over the years. He had the ability to very naturally transition from character-to-character without "overdoing" any of them. He was also one of the most accurate readers I've heard. I could not identify even one word mis-spoken or mis-read.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I listen to audiobooks during my sometimes long commutes to and from work everyday. There were many days I found myself losing track of how I made it into work or home going on "autopilot" for the drive while paying in-depth attention to the book. There were also many-a-evening where I sat in my garage for a time listening until my wife popped-in to let me know dinner was ready.


    Any additional comments?

    All-in-all, an excellent listen. I'm certain that in the not too distant future I will be listening to this story again which I've never done with any other audiobook.
