Maybe I'm being too harsh

Brilliant narration, It was immediately gripping, and I was hooked throughout the entire story. Nicola Barber did a fantastic job with the narration, and it is one of the best audio books I've listened to, I would definately recommend it.
The story was thrilling and very enjoyable. It could be somewhat gory in places and within the first 5 minutes I wondered if I might be a bit too squeamish for it! The descriptions were vivid and at one point I swear I could actually smell the dead bodies. I wouldn't suggest reading/listening while eating noodles or tomato soup! It added to the atmosphere though and built up a brilliant, enticing plot which held my attention and intrigue.
Well worth checking out this book especially if you enjoy thrillers, mysteries and horror genres.
