    "excellent thriller"

    i'm always a little pessimistic when i start with a new author - sometimes that's justified, but not in this case. this is an interesting, well-paced thriller with a coherent plot. it is very well narrated and so i would certainly recommend.



    after finishing this i promptly bought "the treatment" and it was as good. i've now gone for "tokyo" as the reviews for the other jack caffery novels don't praise the (different) narrator.

    Story
    "Very gory, but excellent thriller"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend it if my friend had a strong stomach and a penchant for horrid multiple murder stories! It's really quite nasty: the mental images it provokes are strong and scary.
    However, it was a really good read if you like that sort of thing. A detective story but told from every angle.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Birdman?

    The whole story was good. It unravelled at the right pace and with the right tension and intrigue.


    Have you listened to any of Damien Goodman’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Not that I can remember. It was very well done, fantastically presented.


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Never go anywhere unarmed!


    Any additional comments?

    I'm looking forward to listening to more Mo Hayder books - very well written, although I do worry about the mind of someone who can think this sort of storyline up and describe it so well!

    Story
    "Seriously dark stuff!"
    If you could sum up Birdman in three words, what would they be?

    dark chilling gripping


    What other book might you compare Birdman to, and why?

    Any other Mo Hayder in the DI Jack Caffery series, They're all similar in the style of writing and the suspense Hayder creates.


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

    The performance was continually energetic and enthused, unfortunately some of the accents and the portrayal of the female characters voices was almost comic at some points due to the masculine tone of the narrator.


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

    As a fan of Mo Hayder in the written word it was a great experience to hear her words come alive, however this certainly amplified the gory and disturbing sexually deviant (and just plain wrong) descriptions. I certainly felt a little sick at the odd stage towards the end of the book


    Any additional comments?

    Nice twist in this book, typical of Hayder, sometimes with this author they are a little obvious and you see them coming but this one caught me out! I would definitely recommend this audio book but only if you can take the sick, perverse sexual abuse brought to life in your head. A great book but definitely for adults.
