    Story
    "This book has put me on to a whole new genre"
    If you could sum up Brick in three words, what would they be?

    Unlucky teenage boy.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Bryn was my favourite character, we spent a fair amount of time with him early in the book and really got a feel for a decent but imperfect teenage boy who loves his family and his dog.


    What about Diana Croft’s performance did you like?

    Her ability to flip between accents is remarkable - her Russian accent in particular was brilliant.


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

    It was little too long to listen to in one go, but I did finish it in 3 large blocks because I couldn't bring myself to turn it off. I willingly did laundry for 2 hours so I could keep listening to it, that should put it into perspective.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is fantastic in its own right but the audio edition elevated it to something even better. Can't recommend it highly enough.

    "Brick"

    I received this audible book for review, and loved it.

    Keeps you interested from the off, no surplus story arcs and a satisfying end. Recommended.

    "Action packed, fast paced thriller"

    I received a free code for this audiobook. It is not my usual fare, as I tend to steer away from gang related, graphic books.
    However, this gripped me from the start. It was fast paced and action packed, but I laughed out loud at some of the lighter, humorous sections.
    The narrator was absolutely brilliant. She captured the various accents perfectly. I was very impressed with her Russian!
    If you like your books to be of this genre, Brick will be a must read!

    "Really enjoyable with a lot of twists. "

    I really enjoyed this book. The story was very fast paced and intricate and you were never sure who was going to meet their maker next. It kept my interest right until the epilogue.
    My only criticism of the book was the single voice narration. I found the reader's Russian accents quite irksome and thought the junkies musings were a bit repetitious.
    Otherwise it was a thoroughly enjoyable listen.

    "wow.."
    Would you listen to Brick again? Why?

    My Review:
    well here is my first ever review of an audiobook, actually my first review of anything and I could not have picked a better or easier choice, the story is 10 hours long , the narrator, Diana croft tell the story in such a way that it keeps you wanting to listen on, the characters are believable and I don't know much about the criminal underworld, but after listening to this book, I really don't want to. it wasn't all easy listening some scenes did make me squirm, the descriptions were eye opening and throughout the book you felt for Brin and family like they were your own.
    this book had so many crosses and double crosses it was like a spider web but despite that it was easy to follow, I will definitely  be checking out more of Conrad's work.
    In short, this books kicks down the door of your brain, sits in your favourite chair, drinks your tea and not leave.


    What about Diana Croft’s performance did you like?

    really liked it, did the book justice


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

    I would have loved to but unfortunately unable to.

    This just starts with a bang and keeps on rolling.
    Such a good base story with extra added in. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be looking for more.
    Thank you

    Story
    "Gang warfare and violence."

    I volunteered to listen to the audio version of this book, expecting a thriller, but not expecting the level of violence that it contains. In fairness to the author, the violence was up-front and in-your-face right from the beginning and under all normal circumstances I would have closed the book there and then. However, I tend to complete audiobooks more often than the written word, so I persevered.

    An unfortunate teenage boy from a peaceful, if poor family, becomes embroiled in a gang situation where life is cheap and revenge is all. He was in the wrong place at the wrong time and mouthed off a bit too much. As a result, he and his family become targets of a ruthless mob and find themselves fleeing for their lives.
    My friends read 'body-count' books and we joke about the number of bodies eliminated by the author during the course of the book - well, I have to say I lost count with Brick, there certainly weren't many left to bring to justice by the end.

    If you're looking for dark and brooding with an ominous presence, then this may be for you; if it's a frantic page-turner you're after, then, no, I didn't find that with this book, it didn't grab me and I'm sorry to say, even the ending was a bit flat.
    Notable comment for the narrator, Diana Croft, who nailed the Northern accents.

    "5 stars isn't enough"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a hard hitting, dark, violent story that is definitely not for the faint hearted. Beautifully written, you are carried into the disturbing underworld of the criminal classes. Bryn and his family are the only bright stars in a black night and I was genuinely frightened for them. The tale twists and turns like a fast running river, eventually gushing out into the sea and freedom. A remarkable story from Conrad Jones, ably narrated by Diana Croft

    "Un put a down-able"

    I love this style of book, its very hard hitting and to the point, no over the top padding or fluffy around, your attention is grabbed right from the start and then your taken on a readers journey through a war zone and come out the other end feeling like you just had a lucky escape, and the British writers are so good at it.

    Great Story about a boy who is a nice kid out walking his dog and ends up in bad trouble, You get to really dislike the villains in this book which there are lots of.
    The narrator does a excellent job especially as there are so many accents.
    I was hooked from the moment I started reading this book and it was one my quickest reads in a long time as i couldn't put it down.
    Throughly recommend this as a action packed thriller.
