    "Good book, poor reading"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Black Book to be better than the print version?

    I think it is a great book,and I like Ian Rankin very much. Bit the narrator has a very clear accent, so if you a not scottish, it can be hard to understand the narration at times.

    "Good Story - shame about some pronounication"
    If you could sum up The Black Book in three words, what would they be?

    Gritty Determined Shady


    What other book might you compare The Black Book to, and why?

    Most Rebus novels are similar as Rebus's character is somewhat DARK. Despite his dark side Rebus always seems to be on the side of the angels. Rankin makes us feel that we are on Rebus's side.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Rebus's visit to the Organ Grinder always makes me smile. Nothing about the scene is what one might expect.


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

    The description of the blind man moving around his home.


    Any additional comments?

    Enjoy!
