Seriously dark stuff!

If you could sum up Birdman in three words, what would they be?

dark chilling gripping


What other book might you compare Birdman to, and why?

Any other Mo Hayder in the DI Jack Caffery series, They're all similar in the style of writing and the suspense Hayder creates.


What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The performance was continually energetic and enthused, unfortunately some of the accents and the portrayal of the female characters voices was almost comic at some points due to the masculine tone of the narrator.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

As a fan of Mo Hayder in the written word it was a great experience to hear her words come alive, however this certainly amplified the gory and disturbing sexually deviant (and just plain wrong) descriptions. I certainly felt a little sick at the odd stage towards the end of the book


Any additional comments?

Nice twist in this book, typical of Hayder, sometimes with this author they are a little obvious and you see them coming but this one caught me out! I would definitely recommend this audio book but only if you can take the sick, perverse sexual abuse brought to life in your head. A great book but definitely for adults.

excellent thriller

i'm always a little pessimistic when i start with a new author - sometimes that's justified, but not in this case. this is an interesting, well-paced thriller with a coherent plot. it is very well narrated and so i would certainly recommend.



after finishing this i promptly bought "the treatment" and it was as good. i've now gone for "tokyo" as the reviews for the other jack caffery novels don't praise the (different) narrator.
