well i quite liked it
Any additional comments?
I suppose it's all a question of taste but I really liked this book. I laughed a bit and was completely sure I knew who did it........until I found out I was completely wrong, I liked most of the characters ( have to say thought Harry was a little unpleasant) and stayed up way passed my bed time to listen to the end. In my experience there are 3 types of audio book 1. Book you only get half way through and give up on it, 2. Book you finish but never return to and 3. Book you listen to again and again, returning to it like an old friend. This book, for me, is definitely type 3.

Repays the effort!
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This book took quite a while to get going, but it certainly re-pays the effort of staying with it, as it becomes gripping towards the end, with it's many twists and turns. Not so much an unreliable narrator, but rather unreliable witnesses informing him. Your relationship towards the characters is constantly shifting towards the end.
What other book might you compare The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair to, and why?
Which character – as performed by Robert Slade – was your favourite?
Very well read, an audio book very often stands or falls by the narrator. This one, though slow at the start kept my interest by virtue of the narrator's investment in the characters.

A beautifully crafted crime-thriller!
What did you love best about The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair?
I thought that the narrator, Robert Slade, did a great job of the characters, giving them life and nuance.
Who was your favorite character and why?
My favourite character was Galloway, a gruff detective who hates Goldman at the start but deep down is looking for justice
Which scene was your favorite?
The scene where Galloway befriends the narrator.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
A small town can only have so many secrets.

That s what I call bad writing
Bad, bad, really bad!!
Sometimes it just hurts to keep on reading. The worst of all, the parts with the mother of the character.
