While the book itself is enjoyable, I found myself unable to completely enjoy it because of the narration. Call me picky, but when I listen to an audiobook with Irish characters, I want to the narrator to either be Irish or be able to do a convincing Irish accent. Most of the time the characters either sounded Cockney or had the kind of stereotyped "Irish" accent you hear the non-Irish put on for St. Patrick's Day. To make matters worse, no one even coached him on proper pronunciation of the Irish words, so I found myself gritting my teeth every time he pronounced the Garda Siochana as "the Gardee Shiksana." Arghh. My advice is to get this book in print.

If you could sum up The Priest in three words, what would they be?
Predictable but great
What did you like best about this story?
Like I said it was predictable in a lot of ways but the author did such a good job of telling the story that you really didn't mind in fact the build up in a lot of ways added anticipation.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
I like Michael Kramer's voice and enjoyed the way he narrated it.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not really that type of book, it deals with some pretty intense subject matter, but I couldn't stop recommending it to friends.
Any additional comments?
First book I read by the author but am looking for others now.
