You definitely recommend this story. The performance was good. The reader really brought the characters to life (slightly odd that all the accents were spot on expect for the Swedish characters whom sounded like they were all from northern England).
I did find this story a little long winded in some sections and had to pull my self through to continue listening, but it was definitely worth it!!

This story was incredible, i laughed, cried and was completely hooked! Richards performance was incredible and really brought the characters to life. The twists and story line kept me guessing what would happen entire time. Can't wait for the next story!!

100% recommend this book
Much more in depth than the movie in such a calm and fitting way. Has me questioning my daily habits and opens up a new and fresh view on life, along with a incredibly funny and touching story. My all time favourite book EVER!!

Where does A Feast for Crows rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I am a huge fan of the GOT stories so this ranks very high among them. The narrator I felt left it down slightly so it is therefore not at the top of the list, but still very high

What three words best describe Roy Dotrice’s voice?

Lazy, Repetitive, Clear

Any additional comments?

The voice Roy puts on the for the characters all sound the same and can therefore cause some confusion.

Would you listen to Learn German with Paul Noble, Part 1 again? Why?

Yes, it did help me pick up words and sentences in German

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No, to long

Any additional comments?

The structure of the book was a bit odd, it seemed to start with random words with no much introduction into the basics of German first. For example, I could say 'I would like to park here and she can not drink here' before I could say hello. I did pick up the words quickly though Pauls performance and they have stuck

What made the experience of listening to The Passage the most enjoyable?

The narrator and his use of different voice to really bring the story alive

Any additional comments?

It's a incredible long story and some chapters do get you thinking 'please end soon', but the story overall was good and still very interesting. The narrator was also very well performed!!

Would you listen to Quit Smoking Today again? Why?

Definetly. Haven't even thought about smoking one cigarette since listening, some of his stories can be a little long but all in all it worked!! Its easy to get your head around and find the right chapters etc over and over. The reading is clear and relaxed
