What made the experience of listening to Ragdoll the most enjoyable?
A combination of the sly wit and on the button social commentary of the author and the ever excellent Alex Wyndham's narration.
What does Alex Wyndham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
He just has a natural grasp of how to tell a story, performing all the characters impeccably and with real heart and drawing you right in. There's no better narrator for out there for me.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I thought it was really intense and one I needed to pace myself with.
Any additional comments?
I think it's a cut above your average procedural, with a real eye for detail and character in it's London setting. The humour and characterization are so subtle and self-aware - rare to find in a thriller, but I guess that's why it got so much attention. Straight up one of the best audiobooks I've listened to. Gave me shivers.

This is an excellently written and gripping story that blends a perfect balance of darkness and adventure... the sort of book that would make a great David Fischer film.
Alex Wyndham does a fantastic job of translating this same balance into his narration. His gruff tone to start helps to foster the image of a darker and more sinister world for the audience but it evolves as the characters (and the listener's empathy with them) arc through the story.
He also doesn't intrude on the story like so many narrators do, allowing the narrative to take center stage rather than his narration.
