Just a caution for anyone looking to buy this looking to start up a business or looking for advice around business ownership. Its actually a poorly read novel. It makes it really difficult to learn anything about the business side of setting up etc because there is inexplicably a story being told in the middle. My fault for not properly paying attention to the description so I thought it might be helpful to tell people here.

I will be returning this audiobook. So it is excellent that audible offer this system because I didn’t even think to check the narrator of this book. I started this series purely because I was looking for books narrated by Steven Pacey and was enthralled by his ability to change between wit and seriousness so ably and flawlessly. So 10 minutes into this title and I couldn’t really cope. I don’t do well with changes of narrators. It makes it a completely different experience for me and I just can’t get the same feel for the story. I’m not sure the reason this and book 7 were changed but I won’t be continuing the series

(previous book spoiler alert) Honestly when I started this series I was enthralled. It was great. It was funny, moving and gripping. But as soon as he wrote himself into the story the books just went awry. It was completely unnecessary to the story and quite a little bit egotistical, especially referring to himself as a god in parts. Honestly it was just madness. If you were to read, say, the second or third book and then the seventh, you would honestly think it was from a different writer. Maybe if Stephen finished the whole series while he was young and still drinking it could have been my favourite series of all time. Instead it was just.. eughhh. Narration wise I think it was excellent. It was a shame what happened to the original Narrator as he was superb. But George Guidall was excellent as well and the transition was easy enough to take. All in all I will happily read other books by either Narrator. But would hesitate to pursue any further King novels that I have not read.

Excellent

The book itself is inventive and amusing and very engrossing. The real winner here is the narrator. Was ready to give up on the series after the first book due to the original narrator. But was told it gets better after the change. It honestly makes it a completely different book. So much more enjoyable. Very great listen

The narrator was perfect. Excellently displayed a wide range of emotion and voices to make this a truly gripping novel.
The story itself was amazing. Hannibal is the evil version of Sherlock Holmes. A superb book
