    "Brilliant"

    Really enjoyable, I couldn't put it down and listened way too late in the evening - not good for my sleep pattern.

    There was an excellent plot, good characters, lots of twists and great writing.

    Sean Barrett never fails to impress!

    "NOT HIS BEST"

    I never thought I'd be disappointed by Jo Nesbo, but this is so below his brilliance if the Harry Hole books and Headhunters.. Much less intensity of plot than usual and with so few of the usual red herrings. I guessed correctly about characters many times, something I'm never able to do with the Harry Hole books. Please Jo give us another Harry Hole book soon.

    However, redeeming feature was the always brilliant narration of Sean Barrett , deserving of some award.

    "A little disappointing"

    I am a huge fan of Nesbo, and I have listened to just about all the books. But I found this one I necessarily long and John st a touch indulgent.
    However, Sean Barrett, the reader was excellent as always.

    "Jo Nesbo - just fabulous."

    I only wish Jo Nesbo could write faster! I manage to get utterly engrossed in his books from page one and they never disappoint. Clever, clever books. The Snowman was my favourite but this is a close second. Just can't wait until Harry Hole is back!

    "No Harry but still a great listen"

    First non Harry Hole book I've listened to having listened all of them now.
    Not disappointed with this one at all. Good plot, great characters and as ever great narration from Sean Barrett.
    Hope all the rest of the non Harry Hole books are as good as this.

    "Gripping"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Son to be better than the print version?

    Definitely, I don't read print books, prefer to be read to. Narrated by Sean Barrett, what more could you ask for.


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

    Very difficult to choose, as I have thoroughly enjoyed listening all Jo Nesbo audio books.


    Have you listened to any of Sean Barrett’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Yes many, I always look to see if the book I am choosing is narrated by Sean Barrett. (He is definitely my favourite narrator).


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

    Yes, but unfortunately it was not possible, had to listen at intervals, but I couldn't wait to get back to it.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoy being a member of Audible. Lots of audible books to choose from and so easy to use the site.

    "Gripping to the last minute"

    First class story and the skill of the reader is truly extraordinary. I enjoyed this book immensely having closed many others by the end of the second chapter.

    "He's done it again!"

    After reading headhunters and the Harry Hole series I was optimistic but wondered if Jo Nesbo could write another great thriller......and he has.
