Gripping storyline, excellently narrated

My husband and I are big Deon Meyer fans and opted to download this audiobook for a road trip. We were sceptical as to how the various accents would be portrayed but we were very impressed. I would highly recommend this book - Deon Meyer at his best.

Saul Reichlin is THE best narrator for this series

What did you love best about Icarus?

Those South African accents and expressions, which are SO successfully performed by Saul Reichlin. He brings the characters to life, even larger than life. He brings the unique languages to life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I don't have a favourite, I find myself equally attached to all of them, I guess because deon Meyer fleshes them each out with unique characteristics that help you to understand and imagine them, and to connect with them too. Meyer is very good at this indeed.

Which character – as performed by Saul Reichlin – was your favorite?

I don't have a favourite, and Reichlin is very good at giving all the characters a unique sound, so you never get confused about who's talking.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not an extreme reaction, but a constant appreciation for how well it was written and narrated. I've listened to the entire series and they're all fantastic when Reichlin narrates.

Any additional comments?

It's clear that Meyer does a lot of research when he writes his books. I always learn something, and you never get the sense that he's just making up convenient details. It all feels legit. And he provides wonderfully rich details about a characters quirks and strengths and weaknesses and other detail about them without waffling on with unnecessary and boring information. It's always entertaining.
