The story is classic Barker, with more than a touch of fan service brining back old favourites, quite literally a romp through the underworld chasing demons!

Bloody, gory and shocking, the story is straightforward and enjoyable, but treads quite solid ground with little risk and missing some of the fantasy of previous titles.

Ultimately though, if you have enjoyed his work, you will not be disappointed, but alas, neither will you be enthralled in wonderment.

The premise is not original, but the storytelling is magnificent. The protagonist is irascible and likeable and the story gripping and tense.

There are plenty of loose strands to be picked up and the world is waiting to be fleshed out. Looking forward to listening to the sequels!

Gripping!

Would you consider the audio edition of Gone Girl to be better than the print version?

Yes, the use of two narrators really sucks you into the story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The male protagonists and his development through the novel.

What about Julia Whelan and Kirby Heyborne ’s performance did you like?

Julia Whelan's performance is particularly good, but I can't tell you why!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There are phases, but again I can't say!

Wonderful rich narration and a good yarn.

Interesting insight into the trials of early nature photography with the odd scattered amusing anecdote. Recommended for those who may have an interest in the man and his unmatched body of work.

Disturbing insight into a murky underworld

Approaching this book, I felt as if I already knew Pharma behaved badly and the story would be nothing I hadn't heard before. I was wrong. The lengths to which the evidence base has been distorted is astounding, especially the 'invisibility' of it all, falling well within the 'unknown unknowns' territory. Very recommended, especially for anyone in healthcare and especially any prescribing.

Disturbing, dark and (occasionally) funny(!)

This is the best audiobook I have heard. The delivery is stunning, always on cue and appropriate and really sinks you into the story and the very disturbing mind of HH. Audiobooks of this quality are far better than reading and are more a one person performance than a book reading.

Valuable Insight into military culture.

Overall

A glimpse into the military subculture that is rare to get any insight into for those outside. At times exciting and very always easy to follow and with excellent narration. Do not expect an in depth exploration of the complex internal political forces of the region, but do expect a well told story and the occasional swashbuckling adventure.

An exciting and occasionally shocking insight into how out minds work behind the scenes. This insight has already led me to question my own behaviour and actions. Wholeheartedly recommended.
