    "Good read but weak ending"
    What made the experience of listening to The Deliverance of Evil the most enjoyable?

    It could have been shortened to bring it together with more suspense...but I listened happily until the end when I thought there were so many better endings than the one it flitted into!

    "Some problems"

    Confusingly a few sections seem to be repeated in the audio file, which makes for a disjointed listen.

    "So bad it annoyed me!"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Anyone who enjoys long mind numbing discussions between the chief protagonist and other characters in the book or anyone with a heart condition and therefore under doctors orders not to get too excited.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Roberto Costantini and N. S. Thompson again?

    Most definitely not!


    How could the performance have been better?

    The performance wasn't bad and to be fair Saul Reichlin who is normally excellent was being asked to make a silk purse.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I actually got angry that the book was so bad, I wasted nearly six hours on this book hoping something of interest would happen but no, even the girls murder failed to raise interest and the whole mind numbing six hours are six hours of my life I won't get back. I read a review promising political intrigue, complexity and mystery, it had none of that. The chief protagonist was thoroughly boring, the plot was boring, and the prose was about as uninspiring as it gets, maybe something was lost in translation but I don't think even that could explain all the problems I had with this book. In the end and after six hours, it just became background noise that had to be turned off.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy it!
