I gave up on this book at chapter 12, it is boring and ridiculous and the characters are unbelievable

Brilliant read

Where does The Ice Twins rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is one of the best books I have ever listened to. It was a unique plot which kept twisting and changing.

Would you try another book written by Priscilla Masters or narrated by Judith Boyd?

The story is OK but language seems very gauche and childish. Who has "chums" these days? The narration is very strange. As someone born and raised near Leek I struggled to equate the town I know with two detectives with accents which do not match the area.








What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

OK but no surprises really

Would you be willing to try another one of Judith Boyd’s performances?

possibly

Brilliant

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Man Walking?

m.e. guilt scene...

What does Paul Thornley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

great characterisation

Any additional comments?

I have only reached chapter 9 but felt compelled to write a review, I love it, a new style for Val McDermid but great listening. The humour has had my husband enquiring why I am laughing out loud while cooking sunday lunch... more please Val. I love "Tony Hill" but love this too. A GREAT LISTEN

Good story, poor narration

This book, although dated, is a good story but is spoiled by the poor quality narration. The accents are barely credible and most of the characters sound as if they are verbally challenged. It is in some ways insulting to anyone leaning towards a northern accent.

This book is so well written and perceptive, that although initially I found the story rather implausible it is so sensitive and good to listen to it kept me hooked. More please.

Good story, bad narrator

Overall

I am a big fan of Faye Kellerman and this story did not disappoint, however it took all my efforts to finish the book as the narrator made the whole book seem like an Enid Blyton adventure. The reading style is very twee with lots of almost false affectations between the characters. When reading this does not come across at all but when being read to by this narrator is was gringe making. Beware.
