This author always surprise me

Where does The Eye Collector rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

One of the top 5 at least

What other book might you compare The Eye Collector to and why?

Nothing by other authors could compare to this one. Maybe Sebastian's other books.

Which scene was your favorite?

Can't say it. It would be a spoiler.

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

Definitely.

Any additional comments?

The best part is at the end so just enjoy!

Good old Thriller

I got sucked in to Sebastian Fitzek from listening to the Child. I ravished my Audible credits to collect book after book.
I enjoy his style & the Eye collector is a Fitzek classic!
With his now predictable gift at ratcheting up the tension the book is a race against time to capture a serial killer with our heroes being the unlikely pairing of an ex police negotiator & a blind woman who may be more than she seems.
I always think I know exactly what's going on in Fitzeks books but the end always amazes me! I never finger the right person as the killer but enjoy trying!
I recommend this to anyone who enjoyed the Child or Amok!! You won't be dissatisfied!!

Great story, slightly clumsy translation.

A really good story, well thought out, well read, very current. Clumsy translation to English.

Awesome

A totally awesome read, right from the start you get thoroughly involved in the action. Its starts at the end of the book but it draws you in, A retired cops race to find the children that have been taken by the eye collector who in turn becomes the polices main suspect. A great read that will have you hooked, to the end.

Superb listen!

Exciting, stomach churning, and hugely entertaining! Buy and enjoy but if you find yourself listening to it, wide awake at 3am, don't say you weren't warned!

Dark and gripping from start to finish

The eye collector is a strange book as it starts from the end but it works very well. It follows the life of an ex cop who writes about the eye collector as a newspaper reporter and he becomes very much involved in the case in a disturbing way.It takes you in to a dark and tense word where a serial killer seems to be always one step ahead of his police. A great read that keeps you guessing which I listened too without a pause. I strongly recommend it to anyone as it is fantastic book

Scary!

This German author has a knack - he keeps you guessing all the way and the end - too scary.

Don't waste your time!

Would you try another book written by Sebastian Fitzek or narrated by Paul Shearer?

Perhaps.

What could Sebastian Fitzek have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Where to start?

A blind woman makes her way down a track, having travelled on a bus, negotiated a fallen tree, in a snow storm and made herself at home in a hidden boat....

Maybe the problem is in the translation? Actually, it's just not a good story.

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

N/A

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

A real waste of time!

Enough said...

Any additional comments?

Can I get my credit/money back?

Cockneys in Berlin!

This was an enjoyable little thriller, several twists and turns kept the me guessing to the very end... which I might add is very bleak. However, it was almost ruined by the narrator who gave several of the characters English accents. I found that this distracted me from the story (set in Berlin by the way) and was especially annoying on the angry good cop bad cop combo and the missing boy.
