Disappointment

After so many entertaining books that I've listened and read written by Jo Nesbo this was quite a disappointment for me. Only the name story was good enough but all the others just some futuristic mumbo jumbo. Populistic!

Enjoyed it

I do not usually like short stories but I enjoyed this until I listened to the last story which made no sense to me at all ….

Short stories are not usually for me!

Jo Nesbo - brilliant author
Sean Barratt - my most favourite narrator of all time.
Short stories are something I would normally pass by and to be honest I didn't realise that
The Jealousy Man was a compilation - I saw
"New Jo Nesbo" and ordered it straight away.
I was not disappointed in the slightest.

Some great Nesbo specials and some not quite so

Great idea and some believable serious passion killings but best skip the first and last one which are not up to normal.
None the less ... worth a listen especially if you love Nesbo.

Stratospheric Storytelling

Completely gripping stories. I defy anyone to just dip in - once started it was impossible to stop listening. Supremely well drawn characters and plot twists that defy presumption. Can’t wait to read more from this incredible writer.

One of his best !

This is a great book by Jo Nesbit. I think one his best. All the short stories cover different subjects, many with a twist at the end. All the stories were read to a very high standard which added to the drama. Well done.

Mesmerizing

From the brilliant intro to the fantastic finale
The stories range a wide contemporary spectrum
As a nesbo fan I’m glad he found his pace again since the last book about the brothers was hard going

Unforgettable writing

Jo Nesbo has created a series of exciting, unbelievably creative and astounding descriptions of mood and landscapes. His development of characters were so detailed and exact you feel bereft when the story ended. Nesbo’s time travel into the future to societies both terrifying and real are completely absorbing. He understands love In it’s many forms and expresses the passion between a man and a woman and the profound love of father for child, mother for child beyond the severity of the world around them.
Best read for a long time.

Mixed

I really enjoyed most of the Jealousy part of the book. The second part was more sci-fi or dystopian as well as real world.

Rat Island was too long.

Overall mixed response.
