The Lewis man, I enjoyed very much , but it did go on and on

I like this authors manner of writing but I am not sure of the constantly going back into the past. I am not sure if I will buy the third one in the trilogies. My daughter and her husband recommended these books, and bought me Audible for Christmas.

Cracking story

Love the descriptive way this book is written, although I have never been to Shetland you really feel as if you are there. The story unfolds in such a way that you cannot guess the outcome and the tale is woven brilliantly.

Most enjoyable

A good story and very nicely read thanks. Particularly, having toured around those parts, the more relevant.

Brilliant story line

The fifth audio book by Peter May that I've listened to. Story line nothing short of brilliant. One more to go in this series.

Loved it. Mellow but with enough action

A new author to me. At first I was willing this to move along more quickly but once I relaxed into the mellow, descriptive style I found it very engaging. It is beautifully written and narrated and, whilst not action packed, there were several threads throughout and there was enough happening to make me want to listen at every opportunity.

The Lewis man

I have really enjoyed the first two books of this triology and am looking forward to listening to the Chess man. The books are read beautifully and with feeling.

Long and meandering

Any additional comments?

I almost switched off. This novel went on and on and on. I didn't switch off and I shall never regain the time spent listening to it.

Beautiful and compelling

A murder mystery woven into the tragedy of a man's dementia set in the Hebrides. And a wonderful narrator
