Profound Confusing Disturbing Sadistic Game

Wow!! This is a very profound, confusing disturbing tale of a killer sadistic game.

This is not a causal listen and demands close attention as it is confusing as to what is exactly happening and who is telling the story. It is basically a sadistic game with lives at stake.

After finishing the book I am still reeling going over what had really happened in the book, replaying a few parts over again to ensure that I got it down correctly.

There are graphic sex scenes as well as violence and emotional/physiological abuse. The investigating detective as well as the kidnapped psychiatric patient is no more than a pawn or game piece for the game playing villain(s).

This book is by no means a simple who done it or a high octane action packed thriller, it is profound, complex and disturbing.

If you want a truly different, unique, complex psychological thriller then do listen to this book.

On the downside besides the book being confusing and hard to follow the accent is a bit thick and I had to sometimes replay parts. Also I feel that book could of really benefited from a multi-voice narration as it would of had made it easier to know what character was speaking.

It is not that the narrator was poor, he was good. It's just that this book is so complex that an universal easy to understand narrator may of been better. Also the narrator didn't have much of a voice or accent change between various characters, which also added to the confusion. I do however think that the narrator was a good voice for the major character.

Tense Psychological Thriller

Where does Angels Bleed rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Probably near the lower end, but considering that I've only ever listened to pretty good audiobooks that''s still pretty good.


What other book might you compare Angels Bleed to and why?

Nothing really comes to mind, I took a trip outside my normal genres and was entertained by don't have much in the way to compare it with.


What three words best describe Alex More’s performance?

I can't do that. He has a pleasing Scottish accent and did a good job with the material, but what kept it from being fantastic is that he lacked varying tones to differentiate the characters. I would love to hear him do some other work.


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

There were a few moments when I involuntarily shuddered because of what was going on, but never really felt particularly moved.


Any additional comments?

I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review. I would recommend it to people with strong constitutions that are into the kind of messed-up mind games that humans create. Interested in seeing later work by both the narrator and the writer.
