"Didn't do it for me."
The story line started off really well, it was gripping and I wanted to hear more. But after the 3rd of 4th time of the same bumbling hunt for the killer in the same kind of format I was bored. I lost count of how many times the wrong persons were accused of the murder with seemingly little evidence to create a convincing story. Having listened to more than half of it I struggled to the end only to find it was the person I had originally suspected. There was a bit of a twist at the end but far too late in the book to redeem it.
The narrator was very good but I could not make sense of the Scottish, Gordie, Cockney and other very English accents in a story set in Denmark!
Sorry this didn't do it for me but others may think very differently.
This book kept me interested from start to finish. What an amazing imagination this author has and the narrator is excellent. Highly recommended. Am going to try more of this authors work.
"Could not put this down"
Oh what a journey! A beautiful, sensitive book about a quadraplegic and his carer and family. As a nurse myself, I felt that Jojo was really in tune with the difficulties faced by those who are quadraplegic. She fills the story with humour and sensitivity all at the same time and I applaud her ability for that. Well written and narrated. Great read and will listen again in the future.
"Amazing twists and turns. Brilliant."
I am not often moved to comment on a book but this one had me interested and hooked from the beginning. This is one book I look forward to hearing again. Such a memorable story and wonderful imaginative story telling with great narration. Each character really did come to life for me. I really did not want it to come to an end. Thank you entertaining me.
I really did not want this book to end. I savoured every moment. It oozed images, smells and noise as it journeyed with the circus and the compelling characters. It's going to be difficult to find another book to rival it.
"Company of Liars - Go for it"
Loved it and did not want it to finish. Great read. Well narrated. Lots of historical information. Recommend.
"Emperor The Gates Of Rome (unabridged)"
Excellent. Enjoyed the entire book. Had to pace myself otherwise I would have listened in just a couple of sessions. Well written and well read. Story very easy to follow and the characters were bought to life by good narration. Would recommend to anyone who likes historical novels.
