What made the experience of listening to 7 Days the most enjoyable?
Another winner from Deon Meyer.
Good narration, and a great cast of characters make this an enjoyable read.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Fast paced story.
What does Saul Reichlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Great convincing narration, he is able to deliver the various accents of South Africa.
Any additional comments?
Hope the next book is not too far away from completion!

What did you love best about 7 Days?
I'm a Deon Meyer fan so I knew I would enjoy the story. It was the first time I tried the audible format and I was sceptical. I'm very critical of narrators and I'll rather not listen to a book if I don't like the narrator for fear of ruining the story. I'm Afrikaans but enjoy reading in English. I thought I'd take a chance on this one. I was so impressed with Saul Reichlin. What a pleasure! You are a true artist Sir. How wonderful that I could listen to a fantastic story narrated by someone as good as you. Thank You for making a great story even more fun! You've got the accents down to a tee!
What was one of the most memorable moments of 7 Days?
Deon Meyer makes a character so "relatable". The effort to stop swearing, the inner demons you try to overcome daily, the insecurities you try to hide from the world, the way you wanted to write something down but forgot, the woollies meals, the challenges and joys dealt with daily in a very mixed culture environment in South Africa.... You feel like you can completely relate.
Which scene was your favorite?
The one where Mr Griesel met the artists he admired and the moment overwhelmed his carefully planned responses completely. LOL...
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes! I couldn't wait to get back to it!
Any additional comments?
More Misters Meyer and Reichlin... We want more! :-)

Worth listening to! Deon Meyer is an excellent author and this book doesn't disappoint. Narrator does a good job.
This novel, being South African tends to be a bit difficult to follow as the names are tricky. Also I felt that the police tended to lack a certain sofistication and bludgeoned their way through from one tangle to the next. Any successes were purely accidental!
