I thought it plodded to a pattern and became very direct, no twist or turn but ultimately satisfying.

I can't help it I like what he says...

I wasn't a natural Brand fan, but I listened to this and then bought the book too. He puts a measured and reasoned case, punctuated with the occasional passionate outburst.

And I can't find much to either argue with or disbelieve.

Russell you don't want or need my vote but you have it anyway. Tell where the Queue is and I'm in.

Moody American loose in Europe.

Loved it but I wasn't totally gripped. It's not all action but more all build. The action is teased out and when it comes a bit quick.

I liked it but not totally satisfied.

I loved Brazil as It gave me a real insight into the country and I was fascinated by the detail. For me, and I love Mr Palin, I would rather have a shorter journey and more detail. I won't go for another one that concentrates on waiting and struggling to get on. I want to know more of the flavours and detail... Take me there and let me have a really good look round, get more than a google earth feel for the colour.

Just saying..
Still love Mr Palin though.

I learnt some stuff and like Al Murray...

I smiled a lot at the nerdy fascination with the historic inaccuracies of American war film in particular. If its Al Murray in his pomp you want this is it. If you want the story to take you somewhere then don't hold your breath...

Follows the track you expect but with a journey into boxing and the contrasting aspirations of two police officers... If you like your detective novels with a hint of LA celebrity and based, albeit loosely, on an original case. Then Ellroy is indeed your man...

Horrible story beautifully told....

You can't like the story it's terrible, but Mr Nesbo hooks you in and drags you kicking and screaming through some horrible places and you get to meet the bad people on the dark side of life and the world that you would rather not meet.

I had to listen to get to the inevitable end just so that i could sleep at night.

She writes a good book that Robert...

Great who done what where... Love the characters, it flows really well and keeps you wanting more. The subplot of Comoran's personal turmoil is sometimes a bit obvious, but I can remember watching Columbo as a kid and loving every minute. "just one more question...."

I hope these don't become films as I have such a vivid image of the characters that something would be taken away, I love the images I have.

15 hours of my life well spent with Sarah Lund.

What is it about the Killing... Not the most exciting, story not that complicated... But you leave this book really knowing and understanding the characters. It's as if you actually know them.

Sarah Lund has now become a close and trusted friend. I didn't watch the TV series, but I'm not sure it would detract from the listen.
