If you could sum up Knots and Crosses in three words, what would they be?

Rebus's Start

Would you ever listen to anything by Ian Rankin again?

Definitely--this is where he gets started but all of following books are better.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Michael Page?

Yes, not as good as McPhearson, but good enough.

Any additional comments?

Okay, here's the scoop. This isn't a great book--but I would recommend it to Rebus fans because this is where it all got started. It's written by a grad student. It's got plenty of flaws--kind of shallow, trite, all that. But, if you are ua Rebus fans this is w ell worth the listen as you see him at his beginning and you can appreciate Rankin's growth as a writer.

Classic Rebus, Terrible Narrator

What made the experience of listening to Knots and Crosses the most enjoyable?

This is the first Rebus novel, his orgin story, telling about his time in the SAS and it sets him up for all the other novels and pre Siobhan Clark

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Page?

Peter Forbes

Any additional comments?

The narrator is English, which should have disqualified him. it is painful to listen to his attempts at a Scottish accent and his female voices are particularly unsettling.
