I usually like this author and thought this was one of the best. The story has a lot of depth and is well crafted. The reader was excellent as well.
I was so annoyed with the reader could barely keep up with the story. Every sentence doesn't have to be laced with irony.
Why do I like Tom Ripley? I find myself rooting for this strange murderer. I think the gift of this series is it gives us a chance to look at our own morals and belief systems. And it's so intriguing to try to figure out his. Great reader. I am all for not having endings wrapped up neatly but this ending still, this book feels like it stopped in the middle of a sentance. So much fun though - I look forward to the next one
I have listened to all the Jo Nesbo books and really like them. I think this was the weakest but am not sure as I was so distracted by the reader, Mr. Knai. His voice and intonation are totally distracting and took so much away from the experience, I'm not even sure what I think of the book. Robin Sachs is such a great narrator and adds to the experience of the other books.
No two people look or act enough alike for this story to be believable. It did hold my attention and I thought it was well put together. But, please, enough with the metaphors.
I've enjoyed her books but this is the best one so far. It helps to really get a feel for the main character. Tana French is most successful in this book.
