A surprising hit for me!

Would you listen to The Abbey again? Why?

Yes I would. I don't think I listened to it very closely in the beginning, as the first couple of chapters were a little slow, so I would like to listen to them again. I would like to continue and listen to the rest again because it was a really good story line.

What other book might you compare The Abbey to, and why?

Probably the night stalker, which also held me riveted.

Which character – as performed by John Chancer – was your favourite?

Definitely Ash

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

No

Any additional comments?

I'm usually wary of '1st in series' books, as they are usually a bit dull. This one is anything but dull, and I can't wait for the next one to come out.

Unexciting story...

The story of an Arab police man working in America living as an American cop with his family...a Muslim, is a very good idea and very a humanistic view of what a Muslim cop's life could be like in USA. However, the actual story surrounding the character was pretty rubbish.

Another thing that annoyed me was the fact that the Arab cop sounded more American then most Americans, without even a hint of his real ethnicity.

Therefor this book to me was unrealistic and boring although the delivery was excellent not withstanding the lack of any shred of an Arab accent.
