Deeply gloomy listen

Yes David Hewson is a wonderful writer - love his Rome series - but this is a deeply and unrelentingly depressing listen. Maybe it would make more sense on the page but as an audio, it doesn't. Just a jumble of time periods, creepy loser characters. And why must he repeat phrases or words so often... is it a beatnik thing?

Back to the Italian books

This one was, as the other reader says, depressing. The plot is unconvincing - I was gritting my teeth and muttering "of course nobody would do that". Why did they do that? Why did they continue to cover it up? Why did someone not call the cops on day one and save us all the agony? It was a chore to finish and not even a happy ending. I have enjoyed three of David Hewson's Italian books and will continue with that series - after a rest. Oh, and on top of that, I found the narrator irritating.
