Where does Stalking Jack the Ripper rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
In the top 10! The dialogue is amazing and the addition of James Patterson's expertise clearly shows and if you are knowledgeable of the Jack the Ripper story you will find many easter eggs here.
What did you like best about this story?
The performance was amazing, it made the story so much more enthralling.
What does Nicola Barber bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The accents were impeccable and added so much flavor!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
It was all great

I'm not the intended target market for this story, however, YA fiction is one of my guilty pleasures if I can find those little gems which aren't overly throbbing with angsty hormones and ruining (for me) what otherwise could have been an enjoyable tale.
This take on the 'Ripper' mystery we've all heard details of is nothing new and quite obvious from early on and I don't usually tend to mind grammatical inconsistencies but I find some of the very modern language used here to be one more reason to not love this book.
The cast of characters were flat but some of them, especially the young apprentice Dr. Thomas and the almost just as young chief of police, to have a spark of something about them that might be potental to be great characters if developed.
I've read worse but I wasn't excited by this and wish I'd used my credit elsewhere.

Brilliant narration, It was immediately gripping, and I was hooked throughout the entire story. Nicola Barber did a fantastic job with the narration, and it is one of the best audio books I've listened to, I would definately recommend it.
The story was thrilling and very enjoyable. It could be somewhat gory in places and within the first 5 minutes I wondered if I might be a bit too squeamish for it! The descriptions were vivid and at one point I swear I could actually smell the dead bodies. I wouldn't suggest reading/listening while eating noodles or tomato soup! It added to the atmosphere though and built up a brilliant, enticing plot which held my attention and intrigue.
Well worth checking out this book especially if you enjoy thrillers, mysteries and horror genres.
