    Story
    "Gritty and exciting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would, because it brings you face to face with some horrible realities of mental illness, even though the book is a fiction


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    George, because he was the sick one. Terrifyingly wonderful.


    Which character – as performed by Annie Aldington – was your favourite?

    George. She seemed to really get into his head. His accent and manner were brutally visceral.


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

    Almost

    "Gripping stuff"

    This was my first book purchased from audible and I was so pleased with it. The story is about the 'Grantly Ripper' and has many depths to it. Martina Cole has a brilliant understanding of human nature and as she delves into the past of the murderer she even has you feeling almost sorry for him as you realize what has led him to become the monster he is. The story revolves around several characters and how this one evil man causes their lives to intertwine. Also the narrator is perfect for this story and really makes it come alive.

    "Gripping storyline"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Ladykiller to be better than the print version?

    I was trying to listen to this book at all times of the day,it really was a very hard hitting story,made so much better by listening rather than reading.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ladykiller?

    Markam's Mother !!


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

    I find Annie fine in her narration


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

    Some of the scenarios gave me the shivers but that's how the storyline takes you

    "total tosh"

    This book came highly recommended to me and i was really shocked by how poor it was . The plot was boring and predictable full of steriotypes and cliches . , about as gripping as a poor tv drama which it probably will be one day .Having run massage parlours for years i was disgusted by the predudice and lack of research . Prostitutes are not ' toms' who carry knives and scrap with each other and punters are not perverts . My best friends are all ''toms' and they are all really nice girls . miss Cole should be ashamed of herself .

    "Creepy Killer!"

    Wow! Interesting read. Enjoyable long listen that took me down surprising roads, some I am still travelling down in contemplation. Not much about the investegation, instead you are "in the head" of the criminal and detective and what drives of them.
