Narration has ruined a perfectly good story

The storyline was good but ultimately undone by some truly awful narration. Terrible accents made me cringe. Overwrought pronunciation and expression made the dialogue seem awkward, cliched and poorly crafted. This is one that should never have made it out of the recording studio.

Good story, nightmare narration

What didn’t you like about Saul Reichlin’s performance?

Slaughtered a good book. Poor performance. Poor characterisation. Did he get paid for these? I want to listen to more val mcdermid books in the series but not with this narration

Very disappointed

What disappointed you about Splinter the Silence?

Come on Val this story was so predictable you knew her heroes were going to be best friends again. I fell out of love with Carol one of her main characters she has turned into a whinging Pom.

What could Val McDermid have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I New from the start the boyfriend of Stacy the computer genius was no good. Too easy to spot.

Would you be willing to try another one of Saul Reichlin’s performances?

Did not mind Saul it was easy to spot the different character voices.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Splinter the Silence?

It does not need any thing cut out of it needs more more body put into it' excuse the pun.

Any additional comments?

Very disappointed I wasted a credit, I was so looking forward to listen to this book.
I want my credit back

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Would definitely not say this was time well spent. Storyline was abysmal. The end was unbelievable. Pretty much all of the story was a tad far fetched.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Have no idea - but it won't be a McDermid novel.

What three words best describe Saul Reichlin’s performance?

Inconsistent, lazy, unbelievable.

Was Splinter the Silence worth the listening time?


Any additional comments?

No comment.
