"Loved this book!!"
Loved the story and the characters in this book. Jonathan Keeble must be one of the best narrators, all the accents and different voices are great, especially Wolf's accent. Recent convert to audible and this is my favourite in this format.
"What a surprise!"
Really enjoyed this. First read by Reginald Hill and would recommend it. Looking forward to exploring some more of his stuff.
"This certainly cut the mustard"
What a brilliant storyline. Narration was superb. I found the book to be so gripping that I was loathe to take a break, which almost made my husband confiscate my ear pods!
Phone listening - equivalent of couldn't put it down. I was sad when it finished, I will be checking for books by the same author and reader.
"my first audiable book"
Fantastic story really does have you wondering if you have misjugded main character. Well recommend ed
I have very much enjoyed listening to this book. It is a very good story and Jonathan Keeble is the best narrater I have listened to since joining audible
I have listened to many books from audible but have never submitted a review but I felt compelled to do so for The Woodcutter because it quite simply that good. As someone else reviewing wrote - the other reviewers are not wrong about this book.
The story is excellent and is only slightly let down by the main female protagonist who is unfortunately somewhat one dimensional and she is the only character in the book whose "thoughts" are written about as she continuously analyzes everything - even to her feelings about doing the cleaning. Its a a small flaw in the book and the only one that I found as all other characterization is superb.
What sets this book apart though is the narration by Jonathan Keeble which is incredible. His vocal range is wonderful and his ability to distinctly characterize so many individuals is extra-ordinary. I will buy books that he narrates simply because he is so good and not because of the content of the book itself.
Buy this book.
"This book is amazing!"
This is quite frankly the best book I have ever read/listened to! The narration is excellent, and the story is full of mystery, intrigue and it twists and turns all the way to the end. I think I have probably listened to The Woodcutter 3 times now, and I'm sure I'll listen to it again - highly recommended!
Very well written and very well narrated. You are drawn into the story not knowing what to believe and you end up rooting for the main character and wishing the much more than the worst on the rest.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. It is beautifully narrated and was very difficult to 'put down'. Highly recommend!
