Avis de l'équipe

The creator of maverick detective Harry Hole, Jo Nesbo, branches out in this standalone novel, The Son. Convict Sonny is a model prisoner on his best behaviour, acting as father confessor to his fellow inmates. When one man’s confession sheds light on the fate of Sonny’s father, Sonny is determined to break out of prison and uncover the truth once and for all, and to exact revenge… Every bit as gripping as the Harry Hole novels and Nesbo’s brilliant, darkly comic Headhunters, The Son is an excellent crime audiobook – Nesbo at his best. Get it today from Audible.

Description

Sonny's on the run. Sonny is a model prisoner. He listens to the confessions of other inmates, and absolves them of their sins. He's been lied to his whole life. But then one prisoner’s confession changes everything. He knows something about Sonny’s disgraced father. Sonny wants revenge. He needs to break out of prison and make those responsible pay for their crimes. Whatever the cost.

Definately one of my favourites from Jo Nesbo.

LOL Funny

No, Jo Nesbø's book, The Son, is not a comedy. In fact, it is filled with the drama, suspense, mystery and surprise that make him such a great author. But I have always enjoyed his twist of phrase, metaphors and wonderful use of language. Listening to The Son while I was wandering through a book store I heard one of his great characters, Kalle, say "But ultimately it was about getting the work/life balance right". And I did, in fact, laugh out loud. Why? You'l have to listen to the book to find out.

The Son takes place in familiar settings (Oslo) with some familiar groups (Crime Squad, Kripos) but with new and complicated characters.

Although there were a few moments that tested my credulity, this was another Nesbø book that I just could't put down!

at his best

Would you consider the audio edition of The Son to be better than the print version?

Sean Barret adds a great deal to the experience. He is excellent.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Son?

the achievement of the book is its flawless structure so that each event builds to the finale.

Which character – as performed by Sean Barrett – was your favorite?

I was convinced by all the major characters. They were written and narrated so expertly that I empathised with most of them, but Simon was probably the one I sympathised with most.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely. I wanted to prolong driving, cooking anything to get a bit further in the story.

Fantastic as always

I really enjoyed this one. Jo Nesbo is a great, suspenseful writer. Of course it's a little unbelievable, but still great escapism. I do miss Harry Hole though, however it's nice to have a new character who isn't as troubled as Harry, well at least not quite!

A fine fine Nesbo!

Perhaps his best work yet, full of characters, wry humor, twisty plot. Makes the underworld of Oslo breathe it’s fetid corruption through the story; contrasted with the purity of the protagonist. A damn good book narrated masterfully!

Absolutely thrilling all the way. What a ride

Seldom have I been so captivated. The different voices used really added to the enjoyment. I will listen to his other books without a doubt.

Dead fish

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The story May very Well be one I'll love (like pretty much all Jo Nesbø books) but the narrator have made me give up before the 30 min mark.

What was most disappointing about Jo Nesbo’s story?

Nothing since I don't know it yet

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Sean Barrett?

Bad with names; but just about anyone else.

Any additional comments?

It is incredibly important that the narrators voice suits the theme and feel of the story. This particular one did in no way make it possible for me to get into "Oslo mode". I just couldn't concentrate on the plot and gave up after just 30 min. because I already knew, that he could not keep me intersted in neither story or the characters to come.

The story is completely unrealistic.

What did you love best about The Son?

Would you be willing to try another book from Jo Nesbo? Why or why not?

I was disappointed but maybe

What about Sean Barrett’s performance did you like?

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Wie immer eine Freude Jo Nesbo zu hören...

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an The Son gefallen?

Seitdem ich durch die Harry Hole Reihe auf Sean Barrett gestoßen bin, suche ich oft mein nächstes Hörbuch über dem Sprecher und nicht dem Autor. Er kann Atmosphäre, Charakter und Spannung wunderbar vermitteln. Aber am liebsten ist mir immer noch die Kombination Jo Nesbo/Sean Barrett. Da war die Freude groß als ich ein neues Hörbuch entdeckt habe.

Welcher Moment von The Son ist Ihnen besonders im Gedächtnis geblieben?

Meine Erwartungen würden nicht enttäuscht. Die Geschichte hat interessante Charaktere, die einem bald ans Herz wachsen, eine wendungsreiche Handlung mit viel Spannung, und überzeugende Darstellungen von Gefängnis- und Drogenmilieu. Einer der zwei Hauptcharaktere ist ganz anders wie sonst in Nesbos Bücher, seine Darstellung bleibt manchmal etwas farblos, aber die Geschichte leidet nicht so stark darunter.

Hat Ihnen Sean Barrett an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

Sean Barrett hat wieder eine sehr gute Leistung hingelegt. Das Buch habe ich sehr gern gehört. Ich stecke noch im schwarzen Loch der sich nach einem gelungenem Lese-Erlebnis auftut.

Tolles Hörbuch

Die Geschichte ist super spannend geschrieben und sehr deutlich erzählt. Bei Bedarf lässt sich die Geschwindigkeit des Sprechers einstellen.

Alles top

Packender Thriller - Unfassbar gut

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

Jo Nesbo enttäuscht wieder mal nicht. Das Buch beschreibt eine Geschichte mit vielen Wandlungen und unglaublich tollen Chrakteren... Man möchte das Hörbuch gar nicht mehr aus den Ohren nehmen!
