    "Truly enjoyed this Icelandic dectective novel"
    Would you listen to Arctic Chill again? Why?

    Not in the next six months, but probably in the future to review the story. This is the first time for this author and I plan to listen to more of his books.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Arctic Chill?

    The ending. It was tragic but oh so true to the ways of teens, acting without thought or purpose.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    George Guidall is one of the best audible book readers. I have listened to many of his books and enjoy them every time mostly because of his skill to put you into the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The beginning and terrible waste of a young life.


    Any additional comments?

    Make more recordings of all of Arnaldur Indridason's books, not just a few.

    "Don't waste your credit"
    What disappointed you about Arctic Chill?

    This book was boring beyond measure. It never went anywhere. I always finish listening to my books but this one was a real struggle to continue. Perhaps the worst book I have listened to in a very long time.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A mystery


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The narrator was fine. Have heard him many times and liked his style and voice. The book just has no zing or interest.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Arctic Chill?

    The entire book


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your credit!

    Story
    "Disappointed."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    It was the story. And I was shocked. I love this series. I'm dying to find out if anything wierd happened to the little brother! I am not sure that Guidall could have done a thing to help.It seemed like the same witness / suspect interview repeated 150 times! It just went on and on. "Can you think of anyone who would want to hurt him?" "No. Who would have done such a terrible thing?! " I'm sure thats how detective work really is, but I'm hoping for a little bit more entertainment in my escapism. It was all I could do to get to the end.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I will try another one because this had to be a fluke.


    Did George Guidall do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    George Guidall does wonderfully in EVERYTHING.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Arctic Chill?

    About half the interview scenes. Or changed up the dialog at least a little!!

    Story
    "Boring, Boring, Boring . I challenged myself to it"
    What disappointed you about Arctic Chill?

    Hard to follow, slow uninteresting plot, boring to read


    What was most disappointing about Arnaldur Indridason’s story?

    It did not capture me as a reader as most mysteries to. It was not in league with other Nordic writers such as Jo Nesbo


    What didn’t you like about George Guidall’s performance?

    No problem with the reader it was the book


    What character would you cut from Arctic Chill?

    Eliminating a character would not enhance the book


    Any additional comments?

    Disappointing, 1st chapter is ok but then it goes downhill
