If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
I suppose if you are heavily into South African politics society it might have more meaning for you.
What could Deon Meyer have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
The threads needed to interconnect more and have some sort of resolution rather that just hanging.
Which character – as performed by the narrators – was your favourite?
I had no favourite, I could not get attached to them before the narrative moved on. I particularly disliked the multi-voice sections which were jarring. This should have been a plain reading rather than a cross between dramatisation and audiobook.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Trackers?
Everything that did not have any bearing on anything else, i.e. most of the book.
Any additional comments?
I kept listening, expecting all the threads to be drawn together in some clever way but they were just left dangling which was most upsetting.

I love Deon Meyer and have listened to many of his books. Parts of the book were really good but in the end he did not bring it together in the end for me.

Would you listen to Trackers again? Why?
yes, this is a complex story with great characters that I hope can be developed in further books
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
the plot is not as immediately compelling as some of his other books but it is nevertheless very rewarding.
Did the narrators do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Saul Reichlin is as accomplished as ever. He makes his characters absolutely believable. He reads with intelligent understanding of the writer's intentions. He should have done all the narration. He alone does the South African accents convincingly. The other two narrators spoil the production.
