"best book ive heard so far"
The wood cutter kept u on edge al the time
Cant wait to hear next book
It's a good story about revenge interwoven with a continuous cat and mouse game within the grey area between vengeful vigilante and The Law. Overall the plot isn't to innovative (comparable to e.g. The Woodcutter by Reginald Hill), but it is still a worthwhile "read". Coming from the Harry Hole stories many listeners will discover parallels in pacing and story telling. The twists and reveals are good climaxes following a suspenseful build-up but can be a bit predictable at times.
I do not regret spending a credit on this audiobook, especially since Sean Barret's performance is very good as usual. Again, if you have liked listening to the Harry Hole novels, the voice acting will immediately suit you.
Another book by Jo Nesbo that has amazing unpredictable plot, keeps the listener on toes and provides loads of thrills. I am big fan of the author and Harry Hole books and I wasn't sure if this book will be as entertaining as the others but after first chapters I had no doubt that I will enjoy this book.
The scene where he spoke to head of Prison and the conversation about how he got out of the prison unnoticed.
My favourite voice. I really like to voice - very skilled and gives good impressions of characters. It's clear and easy to understand.
The moment when the female character decided to change her life and walked away from the dinner... can't say too much not to spoil the story!
"The Son by Jo Nesbo"
Headhunters; only because of the compulsive violent behaviour with no conscience of the main character.
I always enjoy Sean Barrett narrating Jo Nesbo's books. His delivery is just the right tone throughout the story.
Yes, you got caught up in what was going to happen next.
I would thoroughly recommend this stand alone Jo Nesbo book, narrated by Sean Barrett as one of the best books I have listened to this year.
One of the best books ever listen to!
the way the story holds you then hits another high
I lost an entire weekend,best weekend for a long time.
buy it , listen,and you wont regret it.
"Awesome Nesbo does it again"
Totally in the top Jo Nesbo pulls it off again a brilliant fresh story
Everything the vulnerability of sonny who turns out to be the avenging angel .......reminds me of the crow
I just love everything Sean Barretts narrates his voice is so easy to listen too.
Watch your back baddies
Brilliant book highly recommend will make a brilliant film if they did it
This story really hooked me from the start. There are plenty of twists and turns to keep the reader interested.
When is the sequel being published? Soon I hope!
It wasn't as good as I had hoped. The son was a dark individual and frankly I ca t remember the story off the top of my head.
I chose this based on other reviews as I was absolutely hooked on the Harry Hole series which was excellent but this was... Well fab!
Some great twists and turns keeping you hooked until the twist at the end - a well recommended listen. I'm a big Sean Barrett fan as he really does read the books well and you feel like he's the character. An excellent Jo Nesbo book.
Will there be another.... Hope so!
"Brilliant in every way!"
This is, once again, a brilliant Jo Nesbo book even though there is no Harry! Sean Barrett is a brilliant narrator. I can't imagine listening to a Jo Nesbo book now without hearing Sean Barrett's voice.
The end had me in tears but i won't say why.
I love listening to his voice and now associate it with Jo Nesbo's books. He's brilliant.
