This is my introduction to Mo Hayder.
I have just downloaded a second of her books. Interested? Yes I am.
The characters are plausable.
The story is interesting and a little scary,
It is a part of a series and the most recent available on Audible.
So perhaps, in my not being familiar with what has gone before I may
be losing something. Keeping that in mind I also figure a story can
hold its own.
For me though Mo Hayder is good enough to listen to a second of
her books in the series.
In a way she is setting her own style in letting her characters be
themselves and I do find that interesting. While the series does follow
a main character, the story line and plots explores how people do
respond to and react to others and how this influences what happens next.
No super hero as such, but a team with a team leader is viewed in action.
The ideosyncratic motivations and interactions are followed, and so there
are sub plots. It is these that I expect do develop through the series.
If you could sum up Gone in three words, what would they be?
Good British Thriller
What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone?
Always when they save the victim
Which character – as performed by Andrew Wincott – was your favorite?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
When the police arranged the sting which led to the end of the monster
Any additional comments?
Good book for me as I travel by air a lot, and actually look forward to waiting for take-off etc so that I can catch up.
I had previously read all of Mo Hayder's earlier books. ('Birdman' and 'Tokyo' are both brilliant.) This was my first audio version of one of her books. Initially I wasn't too keen on the reader's voice but then I thought that this might be because I already had my version of Jack Caffrey and Flea Marley's voices in my head.
The story is excellent and I raced through it. I came to enjoy the narrator's voice and would thoroughly recommend this book. It's one of those stories you can't get out of your head.

A decent story but a ridiculously purple vocal performance. The plot was decent and my wife is a big fan of the author.
