I really could not get to grips with this book at all - I am assuming it was a translation and perhaps something was lost in that way. None of the characters seemed real, I rarely give up on a book but I have on this. It feels as if it is trying to fit into a pattern of 'write yourself a thriller'. The characters are stereotypical and I had difficulty believing this was written in this century. The stock characters in the police - good cop, bad cop, grumpy cop, thoughtless managing cop - they are all there in one big basket. I will avoid this author in the future.

Would you listen to Snow White Must Die again? Why?
No. It is dependent upon the unfolding of the story and the unexpected twists and turns which gives this book it's appeal. Having heard it once the surprise has gone.
Would you recommend Snow White Must Die to your friends? Why or why not?
No. It is clever and initially intriguing, seemingly more than an average thriller or who done it?. But as the storyline throws up more and more convoluted (supposed) surprises, I found it also became tedious and rather predictable. It would have been far better had it been shorter.
What three words best describe Robert Fass’s voice?
Warm, mellifluous, balanced
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Neither. The main reaction towards the latter part of the book was simply oh, no, here we go again.
Any additional comments?
Only to repeat that, what seemed to be an above average story which focused on emotional responses as much as to the thriller aspect, became increasingly desperate to surprise in the final third and so lost the integrity I felt it had carried earlier. It was an O.K. listen, the narrator was excellent, but I wish it had been shorter.
