Publisher's Summary

Op 17 Desember spoel die lyk van Ernst Richter oop in die duine anderkant Parklands - dié Ernst Richter, berugte internet-entrepreneur, baas van die omstrede webwerf Alibi.co.za wat 'n maand gelede so onverklaarbaar en sensasioneel verdwyn het. Selfs in normale omstandighede sou die Valke Bennie Griessel en Vaughn Cupido gesukkel het - by Alibi.co.za lieg almal soos tannetrekkers. Maar omstandighede is nie normaal nie. Want Griessel het weer aan die suip gegaan. En Cupido is verlief. En op 24 Desember begin 'n jong wynboer bieg voor 'n advokaat in Kaapstad, wat die hele saak op sy kop keer. Kersfees sal nooit weer dieselfde wees nie.

Please note: This audiobook is in Afrikaans.

    Story
    "Another great Deon Meyer novel"
    Where does Ikarus rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Deon Meyer never disappoints. As I was too impatient to wait for the English translation I listened to Ikarus in Afrikaans. The narrator is excellent and makes the listeners feel like they are part of the story. Every Deon Meyer story I have listened to or read has always ranked as one of my favorites, Ikarus lived up to my expectations.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It kept me thinking who the culprit was and I was pleasantly surprised at the unexpected twist at the end.


    What about Nic de Jager’s performance did you like?

    He switches effortlessly from English to Afrikaans and back throughout the story and makes me long to be in the Cape. His accent is perfect for the story and I enjoyed listening to him as much as I enjoyed the story


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did, but work, family and pets didn't permit that. For once I didn't mind my lengthy daily commute between my town and work though:)


    Any additional comments?

    I am almost sad that I didn't wait for the English version as the wait for the next Deon Meyer novel will be long, had I waited for the English translation I would still have the novel to look forward to.

    Story
    "Nog 'n treffer van Deon Meyer"

    Ikarus is die nuutste Deon Meyer boek. As jy nog nie sy ander boeke gelees of geluister het nie, dan moet jy dalk eerder met hulle begin, al staan Ikarus ook redelik goed op sy eie. Dis tipies Meyer --- 'n speurverhaal vol aksie, met interessante karakters.

    Nic de Jager doen 'n uitstekende job met die lees. Die stemme was almal onderskeibaar. Hy lees baie duidelik, ook; ek kon hom maklik verstaan bo die geraas van my kar. Ek het dit op my Android geluister, en daar was 'n klein probleem met die pouse tussen hoofstukke --- of eintlik die gebrek van pouse. As die een hoofstuk einde, het die leser maar net aangegaan asof dit nog die selfde mense kan wees, en dit het my baie verwar totdat ek die karakters leer ken het.

    Story
    "Bennie uit 'n ander oogpunt"

    Ek het hierdie storie geniet, maar anders as die ander Bennie-boeke, het ek hierdie keer dit geniet om uit ander mense se oogpunt die storie te hoor. Ek kon verstaan wat in die ander karakters se koppe aangaan, en nie net Bennie se idees nie. Ek het ook die boek ervaar as 'n baie rustiger storie teenoor die vorige boeke waar ek nie kon wag om te hoor wat volgende gaan gebeur nie.

    Nic de Jager was weereens 'n wenner, baie goeie voorlesing.

    When I drive, I read... uhm listen. I like SciFi, Fantasy, some Detective and Espionage novels and Religion. Now and then I will also listen to something else.

    "Deon Meyer delivers again "

    Excellent Bennie Griesel story (in Afrikaans). Well-read; editing let chapters follow too quickly on another.
