Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, January 2013 - With a title like that how can you not be intrigued? Already an international bestseller, Neuhaus's US debut has garnered plenty of pre-release buzz for taking well-worn mystery staples (cold case, small town, unfriendly populace) and artfully weaving them together into something altogether fresh, with a story that keeps readers on their toes till the end. —Michael, Audible Editor

Publisher's Summary

On a rainy November day, police detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are summoned to a mysterious traffic accident: a woman has fallen from a pedestrian bridge onto a car driving underneath. According to a witness, the woman may have been pushed. The investigation leads Pia and Oliver to a small village, and the home of the victim, Rita Cramer.

On a September evening eleven years earlier, two seventeen-year-old girls vanished from the village without a trace. In a trial based only on circumstantial evidence, twenty-year-old Tobias Sartorius, Rita Cramer's son, was sentenced to ten years in prison. Bodenstein and Kirchhoff discover that Tobias, after serving his sentence, has now returned to his home town. Did the attack on his mother have something to do with his return? In the village, Pia and Oliver encounter a wall of silence. When another young girl disappears, the events of the past seem to be repeating themselves in a disastrous manner. The investigation turns into a race against time, because for the villagers it is soon clear who the perpetrator is - and this time they are determined to take matters into their own hands.

    "Suprisingly Amazing!"

    I was blow away by the complexity of the story. It had me guessing from the first page to the last. The plot twists and characters were so well developed and slowly exposed throughout the book. It was suspenseful and difficult to turn off. One of the best suspense/mystery novels I've listened to in a long time. It had the same gritty/original feel as, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo."

    "Great Read!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend. It is suspenseful and keeps you guessing up to the end. You think you have it figured out, and then the story takes another turn!


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

    I didn't want to stop listening! I really hoped it wouldn't end.


    Any additional comments?

    There need to be more audibooks available by this author.

    "Very exciting!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES, I really enjoyed it, I loved the pace and characters. I wanted to keep listening every day but in this case I am sad my commute is not 15 hrs long :)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    They all work together really well, I couldn't pick a favorite.


    Any additional comments?

    I did not enjoy how short the breaks were in between chapters or voices. It was hard to follow at times because it seemed like just another sentence pause but after a few moments I would realize we changed voices and tones. It was confusing throughout the book because of the reader. I enjoyed his voice and tone but really did not appreciate the too short pauses in between chapters.

    "Interesting twists"

    This book was very good although at times it was a little lengthy. The story line is unique with twists along the way I didn't expect. If you like a mystery this book is definitely one I would recommend.

    Story
    "It Took Snow White Too Long To Die"
    What disappointed you about Snow White Must Die?

    I fell for the hype around this mystery. I am a huge fan of nordic mysteries. So I just assumed that Germany is not that far away. How could I go wrong? Well I did and it was. It could have been the translation to English. But the story just seemed to plod along at a unbearable and shakey pace. The concept of the story seemed workable but sadly it died on the operating table. What more can I say? This book was dead on arrival.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nele Neuhaus again?

    Life is too short to read this author again.


    Did Robert Fass do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    no.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Snow White Must Die?

    Seriously? This book may have been rescued by a skilled editor. But it would have recuired several rewrites and a massive tuning of the plot.

    "Surprisingly good!"

    I thought this was going to be a piece of fluff. But it was highly entertaining! There were so many twists and turns. Also, there were so many potential villians and actual villains and victims. It keeps you guessing until the very end!

    Story
    "Awful"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator's pronunciation was jarring and the story was just awful. Kept waiting for it to get better. It didn't.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nele Neuhaus again?

    no


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robert Fass’s performances?

    Absolutely not.
