    "Another amazing book"

    Peter May rights amazingly atmospheric books. The story is compelling and the characters are so real. His descriptions of the islands bring it to life. This book is tinged with sadness and regret but May's story telling makes you beg for more. It also makes the reader have a real sense of outer Hebridean life and I for one am desperate to see all the amazing places that he describes. I'm starting the Chessmen right now.

    Story
    "Moving, emotional roller coaster"

    Excellently read
    Deeply moving and unexpected insight into dementia too.
    Interesting plot slowly unravels to a thrillingly modern ending for a tale rooted in a lifestyle from now lost times.

    Story
    "second in series...."
    Where does The Lewis Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    yep near the top of my list


    What other book might you compare The Lewis Man to, and why?

    this is the first of its kind, as it uses dementia in the story, new issue in a crime series


    What does Peter Forbes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    the charactors were well discribed by the narrator, and there are some gaelic words i would have stumbled over


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

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    i'm left wanting more!

    "Brilliant!"

    As always Peter May has given us another great book. Peter Forbes is one of my favourite narrators, he really makes it easy to distinguish between the characters with his different accents. I cannot find any fault with this author or narrator.
    I'm looking forward to the next.

    Story
    "Engrossing"

    The lives of simple folk slowly unravelled to reveal a complex tale of heartache and hardship but not without hope. Simmers intriguingly until the truth finally reveals itself in a sad but satisfying end. Most enjoyable.

    "Couldn't stop listening"

    Beautifully narrated, I liked the way the author told some of the story through the eyes of someone with dementia, sensitively put but also portrayed so well. Will definitely read more books by Peter May.

    "Wonderful book, not to be missed"

    This superb novel is the 2nd in the Lewis Trilogy. The first, The Blackhouse, was an excellent book and is best read first for the background of this book. But this novel is even better than the first and I could hardly bear to leave it. The narration by Peter Forbes is first class. He effortlessly gives every character a distinctive voice. I am now going to start the 3rd book, The Chessmen. Can't wait!
