Couldn't get past the narration

I found the strange accent the narrator put on to be really distracting and annoying. It's a shame because I feel like I would like the story but I could barely follow what was being said.

Not for me

Was excited to read this considering the description and high reviews but I never got into it. I found the narrator's accent distracting at first, but after several hours of listening I came to like him, and I actually thought he did a good job. The story felt like almost like a prequel, as it didn't get very far, and it spent a lot of time setting up characters that only started to tie together at the very end of the book. I won't be listening to the next book in the series.

Great production, ok story

Excellent production on this book. The soundscape and voice actors did an great job. I thought the story was pretty underwhelming though unfortunately.

I thought the narrator did a good job but the story was a bit underwhelming. It is a pretty good concept, just not executed that we'll. I almost quit a few times and don't think I'll listen to the sequel.

I tried to give this a chance but I only lasted a few chapters. I just couldn't deal with the narrators voice.

Not a great audiobook

I think this might be a novel that is better read than listened too.
I liked the narrator in other books but not sure if he suited this one. Found myself drifting off a lot.

Really enjoyed this one. Well narrated and interesting story. My only criticism is its really short and doesn't really end.

Enjoyable overall. Some of the stories are better than others and there is a definite lack of continuity throughout the story arch, which seems like a big missed opportunity.
The book also finished in the 80s, and there are more books after this I think. Considering this book was a bit rambling I would have thought it would be stronger to combine the books and cut down on the weaker stories.
I probably won't keep reading the series.

A good overall book, or collection. Characters are lacking a bit and it is formulaic, but the action is good, it is fast paced and entertaining.
Not sure if I'll keep reading the series. I don't think the next books are sold as a collection so not great value.

Would you try another book written by Mark Dawson or narrated by David Thorpe?

I wouldn't try another book written by Dawson. The story was predictable and bland.
