Despite the fact that the trigger of this story is not really believable, I found it quite entertaining. I think the author did a good job creating fleshed secondary characters, and this was one of the things that kept me going.
I had troubles nevertheless with the main character. Due to the book being short, and that detective Norton was not introduced early in the story, I found it hard to connect to him and care about his background story.
Rick Gregory’s narration was very good, delivering great characters interpretations. I just have to mention a couple of noticeable audio edits. Something that surprised me was the election of an American narrator for a book set in England and written in British English. I just find this odd when it happens. Nevertheless, Rick Gregory did a great job.I received a copy of this book in audio format from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.
My name is Elena. Since I was a little child I loved science fiction and fantasy, and I can’t resist a good novel. In 2015, while wait I started to listen to audiobooks and I discovered the pleasure in being able to read while doing my daily tasks, so there’s always an audiobook playing on my phone. If you see me with my Bluetooth headphones on, please be gentle, I get easily startled.
I live with my boyfriend, which I met during my six-year stay in Belgium, four cockatiels, eight lovebirds, and a hamster in Madrid, Spain; and I like to spend my free time knitting and sewing while listening to audiobooks.
