Probably a great story, but...

Listening to the first 4 chapters I found it difficult to differentiate between the voices of all the character...they all melded into one unfortunately. So I shall now return it and find another Jeffery Deaver by a different narrator entirely. Jeff Harding is great reading the first two.

Good story

I had been disappointed in the last JD novel I read, this was better - but not up to the standard of his earlier novels which were really tense.
Lincoln Rhyme seems to be less sure of himself, and I rather liked his arrogance fuelled by knowledge that he was right. However, In this novel he seemed a bit gumpy and much ruder to his nurse, which I wasn't keen on.
Overall quite a good read though

Brilliant Deaver again

What made the experience of listening to The Stone Monkey the most enjoyable?

Having been to New York and visited China town I found this book gripping and fast moving.This book gave an insight into the world of the illegal immigrant who had left communist China to make a new start in the good country.the philosophy of the Chinese way of life was thought provoking.How Deaver comes up with such good books that keep you gripped from beginning to the end I don't know<br/><br/><br/>

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tom Lincoln Rhymms long suffering carer and the Chinese detective who came over from china to look for the ghost

Have you listened to any of Adam Sims’s other performances? How does this one compare?

First Adam Sims narrations I have listened to and I found him to be a masterful story teller

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The Chinese detective talking philosophically to Lincoln Rhymme was very intense.

Any additional comments?

Buy it you won't be disappointed.

Review Stone Monkey By J. Deaver

Some difficult understandings due to Chinese dialects.
But many twists and turns that make Deaver books a joy to read
