A wild, exuberant, rip roaring read, thank you @dleadbeater2011 for this wonderful tale, how ‘hard’ is Matt Drake, busting skulls, beating bones and out witting moronic megalomaniacs, as you can guess I loved it for what it was. It didn’t take itself too seriously, it wasn’t littered with literary dexterity and I read it for what it was, a lot of fun.
From the fashionably old York to the damaged New York with narley a blink of the eye and on to and into the mountain of doom, only to be whisked away by the beating blades of a bestial Blackhawk, to the lair of a dodgy dude with an even more dodgy accent. "The Bones of Odin" is an unequivocally gem of far fetched fiction and is delivered superbly by @NigelPatterson.
I totally agree with Scott Whitmore assessment that the ‘bad guys are truly deliciously drawn in their evilness’ muwhahahah. But our happy band of brothers (and a couple of sisters) are more than equal to the task of taking them down.
Nigel delivers the manuscript with adroit aplomb and I thoroughly enjoyed following him and our heroes on the journey of their lifetime. His style perfectly complimented the story and I’m looking forward to reading or rather listening to more of his work.
Thanks very much David, looking forward to the next one.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Any additional comments?
I was expecting a more mythological bent to this story.To me it was WAY too much action/adventure than a storyline that flowed.I found myself just waiting for the drama to simmer so we could get back to the story.
Nigel Patterson was a good narrator for this book.His voices for the characters were perfect.
I was gifted this audible copy for a fair review

Would you listen to The Bones of Odin again? Why?
One of my favourite authors, this is the first in a series of 9 and I have read all of them more than once. I love reading but audiobooks allow you to multi task, also as it is whisper sync you can swap from audio to book without losing your place.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Alicia Myles is my favourite character because she is so over the top, although Drake and Dahl are a very close joint second.
What about Nigel Patterson’s performance did you like?
Nigel Patterson is a clear narrator, easy to understand and distinguishes well between the different characters.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Given the time I could sit and listen to the entire book in one go, ideal for long journeys.
Any additional comments?
I am looking forward to the rest of David Leadbeaters' books being translated into audio format.

The story is dreadful. Very badly written.
Has The Bones of Odin put you off other books in this genre?
What three words best describe Nigel Patterson’s voice?
Good narrator. Did his best with awful storyline.
You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?
