What made the experience of listening to Gone Girl the most enjoyable?

All the unexpected twists made this book so enjoyable.

What other book might you compare Gone Girl to and why?

It is totally different from any book I can think of.

Which character – as performed by Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne – was your favorite?

My favorites were the main characters Amy and Nick.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book made me anxious.

Any additional comments?

This is a great listen. Very unpredictable. At first it reminded me of the famous true case of Scott Peterson and his missing wife Lacey, but only at first. Don't think you can figure this one out, it is very interesting!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Affair to be better than the print version?

Probably

What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He is the voice of Jack Reacher to me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Sure, that would have been a great way to hear it!

Any additional comments?

Can't go wrong with a Jack Racher novel!

What did you love best about The Woodcutter?

I really loved the twists and turns. The narrator is awsome and the character development is excellent!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot didn't exactly keep me on the edge of my seat, but I was very invested in the story. I wanted to listen straight through!

What about Jonathan Keeble’s performance did you like?

He went from character to character flawlessly.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

A great story of rags to riches back to rags.

Any additional comments?

This book is a must listen. Totally worth the time!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes I would recommend this book to anybody who likes murder thrillers!

What other book might you compare The Snowman to and why?

I have heard this author compared to Stieg Larsson, but I think the similarities are simply the translation from from Sweedish and Norwegian. The story lines are totally different. This book is not like any other I've listened to before.

Have you listened to any of Robin Sachs’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The thrill seekers thriller!

Any additional comments?

This is a great thriller! Very different and a real nail biter!

If you like Lee Child's Jack Reacher, you won't be disappointed. If you don't know Jack Reacher, now is a good time to introduce yourself to him. Entertaining listen.

Thouht this book was good. I had never read this author, but will listen to some of her others. Even though it is an older book, it is worth the listen.

Another great listen by J.D. Robb. If you like this series you will like this one as well. Has a few new twists, not just more of the same. A good choice.

This is a great book! This is not a lighthearted book, but it is so well written. The characters are so well developed you can picture them in your mind. You feel like you would recognize them if you saw them. The narrator, Kevin Kenerly is one of the best I've heard. It is dramatic and suspensful. Give it a listen. You won't be disappointed.

Joel Roesenberg's series The Last Jihad is prophetic for today! If you are the least bit interested in the "End Times", this series is for you. This author is on top of the truth! It is exciting and riveting and thought provoking. Start with the first in the series and you will be hooked!

This is a great historical, romance epic novel. The narrator is excellent and the story is captivating. Loved learning some history of India while following the lives of the three women characters. This book is a delight to listen to and I look forward to another book by Julia Gregson soon. Well worth the time and credit!
