Publisher's Summary

It starts with just one body - tortured, mummified and then discarded. Its discovery reveals a nightmare world of hidden lives. Of lost identities, secret rituals and brutal exploitation, where nobody can be trusted. This is the darkest, most complex case the police have ever seen. This is the world of the Crow Girl.

    "Very good"
    Where does The Crow Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Tough subject but handled well for a fictional work. Great listen with plot twists galore. Just when I thought I had the story mostly figured out, along came another twist, then another. Great stuff.


    Have you listened to any of Gabrielle Glaisters’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    First time I've heard the reader but a great voice for audio books. Very well read and very clear speaking. Great inflections and superb interpretation of the written word. Would be more than happy to listen to other audio books read by Gabrielle.


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

    No. Due to the length.

    "Good story, but not for the faint-hearted"

    I enjoyed this book, but there were a couple of negatives. I wondered several times whether it was ever going to end. It is very convoluted and there are so many characters that it is difficult to keep track of who everybody is - or isn't! Worth sticking with it, though if you re prepared to keep hitting the rewind button.

    Story
    "Harrowing yet life-affirming"

    The material covered by the book, abuse of the worst kind and its aftermath is handled in a non-hysterical way.
    The story can be hard to stick with but it's a story that feels real and carries clear warnings to society.

    "Have some cute kitten vids to recover!"

    Excellent story if a bit dark. Details and descriptions are not given but alluded to in such a gruesome way your imagination fills in the blanks in the worst possible way. The 3 original books are combined in this version so you may feel it is a little long but, on the other hand, I was sad to say goodbye to the characters.

    "Hmmmmm"

    I don't really know what to say about this audio book! It's overly long, somewhat disjointed story sort of comes together in the end I guess.

    I found myself mentally wondering off several times whilst listening. I also found myself checking to see how long was left so I could start another book quite often too!

    I've listened to longer books. I've listened to more explicit/violent books. So it wasn't the length or content of this one that I found hard to take.
    There's just something not that interesting or involving about it. It just didn't quite "click" for me.

    "Relentless and outstanding."
    Would you listen to The Crow Girl again? Why?

    No, the point is made.


    What other book might you compare The Crow Girl to, and why?

    Everything is watered down after this book. Beware.


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

    To me, it was very important that it is a female reading this audible work. I don't know whether I could have continued had it been a male voice.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Recognition, recoil and rage, lots of rage.


    Any additional comments?

    Were is the next book in the trilogy, can only find in German?

    "Epic"

    Moral challenges are abundant in our world, the opportunity is recognising them and staying true.

    Mankind's challenge is to protect our children. Crow Girl reminds us how prevalent it is that people want to control, dominate and humiliate others, particularly children. Such a stark reminder.

    The characters and plot unravels like an onion leaving the bitter core till last. Well told.

    "My god!"

    As a father of three young girls this was a very difficult book to listen too, but if we hide from subject matter like this it will never be stopped, it can never be understood how men can be like this!

    Once I got over the shock of the graphic description and started to feel as "I" being a man am not guilty for these men but am in small part a victim of there actions

    People can say killing them is too good for them and I would agree but the organisations that I'm sure exist that profit in this have there own place in hell

    To fix this I have no clue, maybe one! Save the young

    The in-depth description of one of the lead characters insanity is so well written, you feel insane, I commend the author for writing about and being as brutal as they were...

    I'm glad I finished it but I would not listen again because the subject matter is so cutting! I truly got the fear of the dark

    Well done!

    Narrators delivery was really good and it must of been tough!

    "grossly under edited"

    whether it was poorly translated or under edited or both, this was a rather turgid and dull 'read'. unsympathetic characters, even the 'good ones'. disappointing and rushed finale.

    "Too many characters...loses its way"

    It was an interesting listen, can't say enjoyable as the subject is quite disturbing and stomach churning...but there's so many characters and storylines it loses its way. Struggled to keep up and listened to chapters more then once to try and see what I was missing.

    Story
    "Potential spoiled by poor editing"
    Would you try another book from Erik Axl Sund and/or Gabrielle Glaisters?

    Author: no. Narrator: yes. Good narration does not save this book.


    What could Erik Axl Sund have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Erik Axl Sund is the pen name used by Jerker Eriksson and Hakan Alexander Sundquist. Its a pity I did not know this at the start as I don't normally read books by two authors. They are normally substandard in my experience. This apparently successful duo make the book tedious towards the end by trying to include all the weird and terrible things they had read about on the Internet. It becomes tedious as a result. It starts off with such promise but their editor failed them by not reigning in some of the rubbish in the last third of the book.


    Have you listened to any of Gabrielle Glaisters’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No.


    What character would you cut from The Crow Girl?

    Its no so much that characters need to be cut. Its rather that the authors try to get too clever and just end up with a tedious mess.


    Any additional comments?

    Ended the book thinking "what a waste of time".
