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!

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.

great collection of stories

likely not for everyone cause some of these were quite dark- as one can expect from Jo nesbo. nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed each and every one of them, very clever, very well thought out, loved it.

An outstanding and intriguing set of stories

Loved all Jo Nesbo’s books and this Jealousy collection is quite something. I’m minded to go straight back to the start and enjoy all again, and again.
Thank you,
Tim Dickinson.

Slow and boring

Of all the wonderful audible books I have listened to this is my least favourite. Even the marvellous Sean Barrett sounded as though he had a cold and sore throat. Not a group of short stories I would recommend.

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

Was a bit disappointed. love his books. Maybe I just have to get a bit more used to listening on a phone and not from a cd.

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.
