"The most engaging debut I have come across in a long time." (Yrsa Sigurdardottir, praise for In Bitter Chill)
"A twisted, skilful and entirely intriguing mystery." (Quentin Bates, praise for In Bitter Chill)
having enjoyed the first book I downloaded the 2nd title right away without listening to the sample, but regretted it... the narration is very off putting and I definitely zoned pit a number of times. The chosen emphasis on words is wrong so the whole message or tension of a situation is ruined and there were a number of times where words were pronounced wrong too. a real audio disappointment compared to the first book, and other audible purchases
I genuinely cannot tell if this book is good or not. It has an intriguing premise and I've previously enjoyed a book written by Sarah Ward.
The narrator made it impossible for me to concentrate on the story, such was my incredulity at the amount of mispronounced words. Very distracting.
Viscous is an altogether different word than vicious, and relevation is a made up one!
This one is going back.
I would recommend the written book but not the Audiobook
No sense of timing, no flow, mispronounced words, sounded like a schoolchild reading to a class. Nearly gave up listening but carried on out of respect for the author
Yes please but with a different Narrator.
Please withdraw this edition and re-record with a different Narrator.
