excellent first book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, the characters are understated and interesting. The story is compelling. The writing and performance are excellent.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There are two characters that make me want to listen to the rest of this series and to whatever else this author offers--the Faroe Island dectective and the visiting British Detective. Both were introspective, non-hysterical, realistic characters.

What about Matt Addis’s performance did you like?

It was clear. The distinction between characters was clear. Everything about the performance was well done

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

no

Any additional comments?

I hope Audible picks up the rest of the series and the rest of the author's novels.

Can't wait to read the other books in this series!

While some may find the plot a little slow, I felt that it allowed me to savor the book. The character development was good, but we are left with intriguing questions about Reyna's background, as well as his future. The setting of the Faroes also makes this book stand out from the pack. Imagine my shock when I learned that the main victim and the killer have very similar names to both my grandfathers!

Faroese Mystery

If you could sum up The Blood Strand in three words, what would they be?

Prodigal son returns.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Blood Strand?

The protagonist's arrival on the Faeroe Islands is an interesting set up for the story.

Have you listened to any of Matt Addis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

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

No extreme reaction, it was a good book, well read. I enjoyed it enough to want to read the next in series, but wasn't dazzled.

Any additional comments?

I hope the author spends more time describing the geography of the area more in future books. Also, in order to make his story more compelling, I think he needs to add more depth to his main character. Perhaps he is planning on having Jan's back story unfold through subsequent books. I hope so.
