Faulty audio

This audio is very frustrating. The volume constantly fades in and out, so one feels like you need to turn it up to hear it or turn it down, every few seconds. Come on Audible! Fix this!

Stay with it..

Listen to the story long enough to get to the story, character development, and connections to the past. It will be worth it. The narrator is great. A great start to a new path for these Russian kids, now adults.

Great story

Another swamp story. Love the family there, although I miss hearing about the initial characters in this series. The characters are well developed and I like them.
Feehan does repeat dialog and information in the story as if the reader has not just read that same information several times already. That’s a little weird. Overall a good addition though to the series.

Leopard’s Blood adds depth to the whole series!

I like the characters in this story. I like the connections that are mentioned to past characters. If you can get past the first part of this book that is solely sex, then the story develops. Feehan got in a bit of a rut for awhile with her sex scenes, as if that were the whole story, but it seems she is working her way out of that.

Depth

The stupendous narrator pulls through the depth of the characters intended by the author. Even though one character fails to learn and listen for a very, very long time, she does grow very slowly, finally to allow wisdom and love in her life. Laura Kinsale offers a fresh, but serious approach to this genre with great success.

Wonderfully entertaining!

Just the right fit for a novella for the New Year!
Strong, sweet, and meaningful characters.

Exceptional Word Play

A Fatal Grace is a treasured gift now in my heart and mind. I was moved to connect with my mother through much of the story. I replayed many scenes to absorb the depth and subtle love of the words.

Blows you away!!

If you could sum up The Troubled Man in three words, what would they be?

Powerful... Provoking... Change!

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Of course, as usual Mankell does his best to keep the reader tuned to the slightest hesitancy or breath of each character.

What about Robin Sachs’s performance did you like?

I liked Dick Hill much better. I wonder about the reason for the change. This narrator is okay, but lacks the force and depth of character for Wallander.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I can't tell you before you read it!

Just Like Mankell!

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

I would recommend this audio book to those of you who love to hear more of a favorite author: Henning Mankell.

What did you like best about this story?

The pondering, the internal thinking, the people who are unsure, the forceful people, the quiet, and the detailed problem solving and wallowing.

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

No, I loved Dick Hill, who narrated many other Mankell books. This narrator was great too, just a bit less character is given to the players.

Any additional comments?

Great story. In keeping with Mankell's style.

Looking Forward to more...

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I listened off and on at first, then really got it! After that I listened non-stop to the end.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The best part: the relationship and romance.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Zoe Winslow?

This series needs a man with a slow sexy voice to narrate.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Oh, yes, it would be a great mini-series.
