"Just a joy. It will make you think about yourself"
It starts and you just have to wonder how the book can keep you interested, how can it be interesting . Believe me it draws you in you will feel every emotion there is. It was just a beautiful book.
I will bet that you want to make a difference after you read this
"warning: this will leave you wanting more"
Great continuation from part one. My only regret was I waited to long between them. It was not a sequel it was the same book and I needed to work very hard to remember what had happened.
Story is great and clever.
"Not unique but very good and gripping"
While not one I will remember and rush back to read again it was a very gripping story and what nightmares are built on.
I have never really been a fan of the one man against the world with impossible odds but this was a goody in that style
"One Day, this is not, but a great read and fun"
I loved One Day and so came to this with very high expectations. Yes I was a little disappointed but actually after I got over that it was a good fun story. Loved the underlying theme that holds the story together, the games show.
Story line is obvious and linear but actually all the better for that.
A pleasure to listen to and you do grow close to the small pool of key characters.
"Insightful and strangely addictive"
I started of wondering why i downloaded this. not my normal style and had no real interest in gang culture. Something in the description made me want to try. So glad i did. It took a little while to get into the pace and style. Was not sure about the narrator. again personal and not a criticism.
BUT. then i just started to get it. I found I cared about the main characters and was drawn into a brilliant plot that is full of sadness and desperation with a health layer of wit and humour. The climax leave you wanting more. I will be looking for more books from Helen in the future.
The narration: i grew to really like it...
"Bit of a disappointment after This Charming Man"
Bit obvious for my taste. Having said that it was witty and I would be lying to say I did not enjoy it.
"Now that is a great book. just so clever. you will"
want more. This is what I hoped Rivers of London would have been like. It is a world war drama mixed with fantasy and mad ideas. a perfect mix and great characters. Witty, nasty and all round good. It is a book I will listen to again. Thank you for this one. well written very well read
"Brilliant Brilliant Oh did i say brilliant"
Oh why does Stuart not read more of his own books. He is beyond brilliant. The story is hideous and will turn your stomach then have you belly laughing. Oh please i can't hear this it is so horrible, then how has he made this so funny.
I can't actually capture how much I admire the writing. so well researched and so puerile at the same time. Fantastically hate-able characters.
If you like hard hitting cop drama there is no better.
Stuart PLEASE narrate more of your books. You really make a good story.... Brilliant
"Well written and interesting"
But if I was honest I was a little bored with this. For the 1st time I wish I had listened to an abridged version. The characters were interesting, though a little stereotypical, and the history and story were told well. Just it lacked pace, which may have been the intention, and failed to draw me in. I found that I did not really care about the characters.
"OK Honestly I never thought I would offer this a 4"
Started listening and really thought it was just not my kind of book. I could tell it was skilfully written but not my bag.
I am so glad I stuck with it. it drew me in and I just wanted more. I WILL be getting the rest of the series.
Never have I been won round by a book like that. Brilliant narration might have been a part of that.
Saw this and was excited. Looked forward to sharing with my kids. To be honest I listened and felt nothing. I really like Neil Gaiman's style and humour. I just did not find it in this book.
But I am hugely impressed that he went to all this effort for charity. Just this time it missed the mark for me.
