If you could sum up Amok in three words, what would they be?
What other book might you compare Amok to and why?
Nothing I have heard compares to this.
Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This is the first time.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
All of it.
Any additional comments?
Warning! Do not start listening to this audio book unless you have 8 hours to spend ignoring all work, family and other commitments. This is the best thing I have heard from Audible in the 4 years or so I have been a customer hands down. The play structure and sound effects add to what is already a brilliant story. MORE English Sebastian Fitzek PLEASE!!! (or I may just have to learn German)

the musical dramatisation was a bit much & off-putting. Actors were very good, first time I've listened to an audio book using different actors for each character & I would listen to similar again. Without the music!

This was more than a book - it was an amazing drama. I am unable to read or watch television at the moment, and what a welcome change to listen to Amok where I felt immersed in the story. I was a little confused at first with the different characters and very nearly gave up but I'm so pleased that I persevered.
I congratulate and thank the author, the production team and the actors for a welcome break!

I read The Child before this one so expected more. I was disappointed but can't explain why without spoiling it for future readers other than it was predictsble and clichéd.
The musical interludes were far too long and distracting. I was attracted to the idea of a radio play but found the story unconvincing and therefore disappointing.
