    "Gripping right until the end"

    I really enjoyed this book. I loved the easy writing style, with its humour and plausible plotting. The young protagonist Finn was a believable, likeable character. And the other characters were well-drawn and interesting.

    The pace doesn't drop, without getting frantic. There was one particularly tense and exciting chapter towards the end and, although Finn handles his traumas so well in his deadpan way, the end scenes were incredibly moving.

    What I also rejoiced in was a proper ending. This is the third trilogy I have started recently and the other two (dystopian) first books left you in the air, with no decisive denouement. You felt you had to read the next books to get resolution. Crusher was a complete work - and I'd like to read the next in the series, simply because I know it will be entertaining.

    "FIrst Book, when's the next one?"

    Just finished listening to The Crusher.

    Let's get the criticism out of the way. Some of the plot points are a little implausible.

    On the plus side though, the main character, Finn Maguire, is likeable, tough and savvy. The characters are believable and the book has good pace. Suffice to say, that I've been taking every opportunity to listen to more of the story whilst walking my dogs, driving in the car and, sneakily, in my office.

    I note from the biography that Niall Leonard writes for TV, which explains some the of graphic descriptions and settings. I think that this is a very "visual" book.

    I'm writing this review as I've been looking for any more audio books by Niall Leonard or book 2 of Crushers life as the ending seems to be a set up for future volumes. Disappointed that, at the time of writing, there isn't one. But I'm prepared to wait.

    I've thoroughly enjoyed Crusher. It's a good story, well told and very well read. I'll be looking for any other books read by Daniel Weyman.
