Having followed the adventures of St Mary’s since the beginning I can say that this is a bloody good book. The reading by Zara Ramm gives the characters life and many laugh out loud moments as well as sad throat lump ones too. If you’re in two minds as whether to buy it or not I’ll always say buy it, it’ll make your day better.

Slow start but pulls you in

The book is slow to start but pulls you in and keeps you gripped till the end. Because of this book I’ve bought two others in the Monster Hunter International series. Definitely well worth the money.

The book was fast paced from start to finish. I couldn’t turn it off even at work or when in the shower I listened to it. Taking just two days as it’s so unputdownable. Will definitely listen to it again. 😍

As usual the book never fails your expectations. The story grabs you by your lapels and the intensity, dialogue and seamless narration combines to deliver a serious headbutt that leaves you gasping with shock at the end. Another King winner. 😍😍

This is my favourite Christmas story. I have a tradition that on Christmas Eve I watch the film but now that I've got the talking book it's even better.

Loved the book. Another hit from Joe Hill. I'll be listening to this and my other Joe Hill books again.

This was totally fantastic made even better as it's read by Arnold J Rimmer 1st Technician himself. I could listen to this over and over again.

I loved the books, then I loved the films and now I love the audio books. A must have for any Potter fan.

Love the Potter books and films and now love the audio book. Stephen Fry just nailed it. The only way it could have been better is if the same actors from the films also narrated the books.

Good however.....

This story was a really good one with a very interesting premise behind the underlying idea; however; although I enjoyed the book I was so very frustrated because it went quiet at times while the actors were performing some action, I think if they're gonna record something like this they should include audio performance otherwise it feels like watching a film with your eyes shut throughout the entire film. Very disappointing in that respect.
