Would you try another book from Erik Axl Sund and/or Gabrielle Glaisters?
Author: no. Narrator: yes. Good narration does not save this book.
What could Erik Axl Sund have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Erik Axl Sund is the pen name used by Jerker Eriksson and Hakan Alexander Sundquist. Its a pity I did not know this at the start as I don't normally read books by two authors. They are normally substandard in my experience. This apparently successful duo make the book tedious towards the end by trying to include all the weird and terrible things they had read about on the Internet. It becomes tedious as a result. It starts off with such promise but their editor failed them by not reigning in some of the rubbish in the last third of the book.
Have you listened to any of Gabrielle Glaisters’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
What character would you cut from The Crow Girl?
Its no so much that characters need to be cut. Its rather that the authors try to get too clever and just end up with a tedious mess.
Any additional comments?
Ended the book thinking "what a waste of time".
Where does The Crow Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Tough subject but handled well for a fictional work. Great listen with plot twists galore. Just when I thought I had the story mostly figured out, along came another twist, then another. Great stuff.
Have you listened to any of Gabrielle Glaisters’s other performances? How does this one compare?
First time I've heard the reader but a great voice for audio books. Very well read and very clear speaking. Great inflections and superb interpretation of the written word. Would be more than happy to listen to other audio books read by Gabrielle.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No. Due to the length.

I enjoyed this book, but there were a couple of negatives. I wondered several times whether it was ever going to end. It is very convoluted and there are so many characters that it is difficult to keep track of who everybody is - or isn't! Worth sticking with it, though if you re prepared to keep hitting the rewind button.
