Excellent listen

Would you listen to The Girl on the Train again? Why?

Bought this on a bit of a whim and was so pleased I did. The story is so gripping that I sped through and will definitely need listen again to catch all the bits I missed in my eagerness!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Its hard to pick a favourite character as they all have things to hate about them! If pushed I would probably say Megan.....

Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?

I think Megan's character was particularly good.

Any additional comments?

I didn't enjoy the narration of Anna, she sounded a bit like a newsreader - a bit too clipped and false - however it didn't detract too much from the overall enjoyment.

A compelling listen.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Enjoy the narration immensely, and found the characters highly engaging. Its been a week of cooking 'proper' meals, early nights, ironing and minimal TV so I could maximise my opportunities to listen!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Revival?

The development of the character of Charles Jacobs, you keep hoping.....

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Probably the revival!

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

Yes!

Any additional comments?

Initially I felt the climax was a little bit of a let down, maybe due to the big build up, however I kept listening and somehow the epilogue reeled it back from being a tad too outlandish.

Enjoyable, well read

I enjoyed this narration by Jeremy Iron's but the subject matter is rather disturbing. Still very enjoyable.

Another cracking book well narrated

I really enjoy the folly series from Ben Aaronovitch and I love Kobna Holdbrook-Smith this next installment didn't disappoint.

Great story

This is a good story and a good narration. Its was long enough to keep me going for a while and good enough to ensure that no matter how busy I was I made time (driving, lunch away from my desk for once! Cleaning the kitchen whilst listening and bedtimes) to listen. A good buy.

Easy Listening

I like all of the Septimus Heap books although I am not this particular narrator's No.1 fan I think I was a bit unfair to him in my review of Eragon as I managed to listen to all the Septimus Heap books. It's not a masterpiece but it's entertaining, enjoyable and humorous would be wonderful for kids on a long car journey.

A nice selection

I liked this selection of erotic stories, some a bit similar but all enjoyable. Not as keen on the male narrator hence the 4 stars.

Another enjoyable Stephen King

This is a suspensful novel that keeps you engaged. It wasn't what I was expecting from reading reviews but I really enjoyed it and love the depth of characters. I also liked the narrator (once I got used to him). 5 stars!

Thoroughly enjoyable - 2nd Book Please!

I really enjoyed this audibook, I love Frank Muller as a narrator and he is well suited to Stephen King. Anyone who likes the Dark Tower will also like this however I was massively disappointed to find that I cannot get the second become because of a licensing restriction that affects the area I love (Yorkshire). Absolutely gutted about this and sadly audible haven't been much help. 5 stars for the story ZERO for the customer service.

Very Good

Never read the book but really enjoyed this - well read (at times slightly annoying narrator) but the story is good enough that it doesn't matter and it wasn't so annoying that it prevented rapt listening!
