    "Creativity with delicate genius"

    This beautifully written book with such simple narrative and intriguing plot is nothing short of spell binding. The author's acute ability to capture and relate human emotion is staggering. It is Wuthering Heights with a 20th Century plot. If you read nothing else this year then read this!

    "Absolutely worth a listen"

    Easily one of the best books i`ve listened to. From the begining I found it hard to get out the van, Even looked forward to a long drive from Southampton to Doncaster listening to this. The story is gripping and Jonathon Keeble an excellent story teller. Will definitley be buying more books from Reginald Hill and looking out for jonathon Keeble narrations.

    "Excellent"

    A most excellent book. The reader made it a most compelling book, and brought the characters to life with his talent of being able to speak so many different accents. Lots of twists. I could not wait to get back home to listen to more. Hope there will be lots more from both author and reader. Well done to both.

    Jonathan Keeble is a master in narration, he changes his accent and gives you unforgettable listening experience. the audiobook narrated by him is even better than the hard copy, the best audiobook i have ever listened to!

    "The Woodcutter"

    I have listened to more than 100 books while with Audible and this is by far and away the best. I echo all that is said its compulsive listening, did wonders for my fuel consumption, and the narrator is nothing short of brilliant doing a fantastic job of bringing the characters alive.

    "Loved this book - listened to it twice on the trot"

    Really enjoyed the narration of this book - easy on the ear and characters were easy to distinguish and well portrayed. Interesting story with an unexpected twist at the end.

    "One of the best books i've listen to"

    The Woodcutter is one of the best books I've listen to. The story is like a big onion with layer after layer of intrigue and surprise. The complex lead character is honorable, yet amoral; charismatic, yet detached; unpleasant, but you are drawn to him like a moth to a flame. The other characters are also brilliantly developed, with Jonny Nutbrown, the upper class twit bringing some wonderful funny moments in an otherwise dark thriller. Highly recommended.
