    "A new impression of Scotland"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I will do if the friend is interested in pure entertainment.


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

    Kernick will always do that to his "fan club".


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The last one.


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

    A few short unneccessary parts would been left out from this story.


    Any additional comments?

    No reason to care if all parts in the story doesn't fit perfect together because it is only
    entertainment and who cares about minor details. If the events in this story had happened in the real life about 150 years ago in the old American wild west, they had still been famous legends in our time.

    Story
    "Overly frenetic thriller"

    I enjoyed the author's book Last Ten Seconds so knew his style would probably be a pacy thriller that takes the listener on a roller-coaster experience. However after a gripping start and intriguing early chapters the present story descends into just too many situations of jeopardy, bodies piling up and lonely parts of the Highlands of Scotland apparently inhabited by Russian gangsters, paedophiles, corrupt policemen, hit men and gun-totting grannies. There's little in the way of character-development and no respite from action. I think the story needed a few quiet interludes to slacken the relentless pace. It's all a bit too macho for my taste, though the narrator does a great job and must have been exhausted by the end!

    Story
    "Simon Kerning Fan"

    Enjoyable enough and breaks from the normal Simon Kerning plots a bit. If you are a fan of them you'll enjoy it. If you've not read his stuff before try severed or rentless first they are superior books.

    Story
    "Terrifying and addictive"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Would only recommend to a brave friend living far away from the Scottish highlands who is never alone in the woods or hills.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Stay Alive?

    So many frying pan to fire moments for people that I genuinely cared about.


    What about Paul Thornley’s performance did you like?

    Great delivery of a tight story drawing the reader into the jeopardy of the vulnerable characters.


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

    Even the highlands aren't safe!


    Any additional comments?

    The only book my girlfriend has listened in one sitting as she was to scared for casey and jess to stop.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It was suspense right from the start, kept me guessing almost right to the end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Twists and turns in the story meant I was never sure what would happen next. Great characters and narrator.

    Almost perfect narrator


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

    Run, but you can't hide
