Great story, pity about the music

I've enjoyed the Tom Thorne books and this was no exception. Robert Glenister is a great narrator. What ruined this audio book for me was the insertion of a supposedly 'suspenseful' piece of music every so often. It was so jarring that I found it ripped me out of the immersion in the story that I'd felt before. A shame, because it was otherwise a very good story.

A pile of soft porn!

When you're introduced to a book as being a tense psychological thriller, you don't expect to have to put up with quite as many elongated sex scenes as were in this novel.

I felt completely unable to sympathise for the main character. And on top of that, the plot progression and supposed twists were both farcical and predictable.

The narration was probably the only reason I got as far through the book as I did. I will look forward to seeing Mark Meadows' name on any further audiobook I buy. But I doubt I'll be trying any novels by Elizabeth Haynes again.

What did you like most about Buried?

A well written, extremely well narrated Audio book but I wish that I had read the previous reviews before starting to listen to the book. I did finish it but it was far too descriptive for me as far as the gruesome parts go. I will certainly be more careful before purchasing another of this author's works.

A very lack lustre storylines with very little meat on the bones. In places too much waffle and the author's views and interests finding page space yet again. Certainly not a page turner.
The narrator performed very well as usual but really must learn that a Teeside accent isn't anything like that found on Tyneside . It was only his narration that kept me listening 'til the end.

So different...

A delightful and intriguing read. The author has both humour and a wonderful insight whilst weaving a mysterious tale. And as usual fantastically narrated by Anna Bentinck.
