4.0 out of 5 stars Narrator adds to the drama, 15 Feb. 2011
This review is from: Aurelio Zen: Blood Rain (Aurelio Zen 07) (Audio CD)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Before I get into saying a few words about the novel itself, I want to point out that for me one of the aspects that made this audiobook so enjoyable to listen to is the narrator. His clear diction and subtle characterisation is so charming when needed and quite incisive in the more thriller-ish sections of the book, that it added an extra dimension and a joy to listen to.

The story itself is intriguing enough to keep you interested throughout. Also from beginning to end, the author uses such apt metaphors and description of the Sicilian atmosphere and the hot summer climate adds an extra dimension which I found compelling. There were a couple of occasions however when it felt long winded in detail and got lost in some "scenes" almost as if pointless to the plot, but I think if yon just go with those passages, you do find yourself absorbed into the drama. I won't say annoying about the plot because there is plenty of that already in the various synopses.
