A wonderful audiobook. The narrator is perfect for this rich, warm and complex novel. A+.
I listen to a lot of audio books and this one was engaging I want to keep listening till I was finished and it was very engaging from start to finish
I NEVER listen to a book twice, but I may come back to this again. First book I have read by Hill. The narrator is so talented. unfortunately I could not stop listening and was late to work the next day. What the hell, it is as far as I walk on the wild side. Sad, isn't it?
Wow! Once in a while you run into a book that is so engrossing you can't put it down - 'The Woodcutter' is one of these rare gems. The writing style was absorbing & thoughtful. The plot twists are devious and intriguing- spend the credit get this book! You will not be disappointed
A story of hate and revenge, of child porn and fraud, of deceit and lust....but,alas, I did. And am I ever glad that I did!! The narration was superb! The story wound round and round, in and out, and ended with a delightful climax! I don't read books twice. But this may be an exception!!
Great story, a must read and also the best narration I've ever heard on an audio book!
"Phenomenal listen thanks to Jonathan Keeble"
Thoroughly enjoyed listening to the Woodcutter. all the better due to the narrator Jonathan Keeble
I loved everything about this book, the story and narration were brilliant. gripping to the end.
"Great tale of revenge and twisted loyalties"
This is my first Reginald Hill book, and it was thoroughly enjoyable.
There are points when the plot stretches credulity, but only ever stretches it. The author takes care to try and help you along at those points. He makes an effort to ease the path for you to stay with him, and his respect for you as a reader should be repaid.
The writing style is easy, and certainly helped by Jonathan Keeble's narration that simply keeps the whole thing flowing along, while the author takes great care to ensure that you empathise with the main character from the start. In that way the injustice begins to feel personal.
The twist in the tail of the plot is also well concealed.
Well worth a listen.
This is the first Reginald Hill book I have listened to, but probably not the last!
He brings the characters to life!
Wasn't sure what to expect as this is my first Reginald Hill book but glad I did. Great story, narrator voice was spot on, story held you throughout. Give a try you won't be disappointed.
Beautifully read by the narrator, a great storyline from beginning to end. Couldn't wait for the finish but at the same time didn't want it to end. I would recommend to everyone.
"really good yarn worth something of an anti hero"
great narration, fun characters. you really feel for poor old Wolf. this one kept me gripped and guessing pretty much to the end.
I really enjoyed this book, interesting plot with a twist. The main characters were warm and easy to empathise with.
Other books by Reginald Hill. He has interesting ideas and unusual plots.
easy to listen to, put emotion and mood into his voice.
i won't spoil the story but i loved the twist.
The dramatisation was excellent so yes.
