Excellent premise and plot but poor narration

Really excellent and mostly plausible plot, still very active right to the end, but in places predictable and over doing the character stereotypes. The Male narration is fine, but the Female (especially when putting on a Male's voice) is quite tinny and hard to listen to

great start, rushed ending

really strong and suspenseful start but the ending becomes both implausible and rushed. the performances are excellent even if at times the subject is a bit heavy handed

suspenseful to the very end

although some of the characters were a little predictable, the plot is unique and well paced throughout. the main character's nack of being able to recover from serious injury ready to work and sleuth are a little unrealistic but overall a really riveting expertly told story

Sad and sadly true

Really open and sometimes shocking account of what it takes to live the dream of so many in what we will someday look back on as a truly barbaric time in our history. its beautiful to imagine the relationships between man and whale

gripping and emotional

another cleaver, hilarious Aaronovitch outing with enough reference to the 'UK' Rivers to keep new readers in the loop... as always, left wanting more but looking forward to next

really captivating stories with the authors unique take on each giving a non-sceptic but at the same time non-fanatic conclusion

the narration was good, but some of the accents were out and I felt there was too much emphasis on reducing the lead characters abilities because of her maternal instincts which was unnecessary. however the overall story was good

nothing new, but a good reminder of the events

Slight bias towards the abduction theory of the McCann's and lacks any new insight or evifence but well narrated and thorough in its coverage
