Just not a good story

While I enjoyed the performance, I thought the story weak and disjointed. Spending too much time on minor parts of the story and then skipping through the important parts of the story seems like a strange thing to do.

While I enjoyed the story, Bernard Cornwell continues to impress with his writing, the narrator detracted from the tale. I just don't think this was the right type of story for him.

Overall I struggled to maintain the plot as I couldn't differentiate between the characters. However like Utred, I will march on!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narration

Has Blood on Snow put you off other books in this genre?

no

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I wouldn't know, I fell asleep half way through

If this book were a film would you go see it?

As long as the narrator change

Any additional comments?

I'm sorry, but this really was a dreadful choice of narrator. Sean Barratt made Harry Hole into a believable thoroughly enthralling character. Patti Smith narrative was poorly paced and monotone. I had little interest in finishing what might have been quite a good listen.
