Better than ever

What made the experience of listening to The Thirst the most enjoyable?

Having waited a while for a new Jo Nesbo audiobook, I was not sure if it would be as good as previous books. I loved the detail, the imperfections and the humanity of the characters

What did you like best about this story?

I suppose its the underlying qualities. On the surface it is a thriller, but under it, its about people and what makes us human.

What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?

He is one of my favourite narrators. He combines a very relaxed and laconic approach with a sense of drama.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The young girl Marta

Any additional comments?

I have looked online and found out some info about the way Jo Nesbo writes and find him an inspiration as a writer, and find his books very believable

A bit too drawn out, but still a great listen.

I feel the overall story could have been more concise. This would have made it wonderfully thrilling and not just mediocre thrilling. However,Jo Nesbo has done it again and I still recommend this novel.

I had tears in my eyes in parts near the end,caused by knowing the history behind the characters.

Sean Barrett as wonderful as ever.

Another edge of the seat novel.

Quite complex in its plot, but worthwhile. Lovely narration, as ever, by Sean Barrett.
I managed to fall in to one of Nesbo's traps, and was convinced of the guilt of one character - I do like his way of writing, and his characters are fun.

Brilliant as normal

It makes me sad to know I am going to have to wait a long time for the next Jo Nesbo book. I've read/listened to all of the Jo Nesbo books and I am addicted. Sean Barrett is just the best narrator, I could listen to him all day every day, the characters portrayal is excellent. It hard to find something else to listen after this, but I do have other favourites.

Nesbo Hole Classic

So worth the wait. Harry Hole fans will not be dissapointed and Sean Barrett is such a talented reader. Every character is well defined and his rendition of Nesbo's words brings every facet of this book to life. It's so easy to visualise everything which at times can be quite disturbing. Be prepared to find yourself stopped in your tracks engrossed in the narrative. Took me twice as long to do my housework last weekend as I found myself just sitting or standing - engrossed.
