It’s a pleasure to be sharing my review for The Patient Man by Joy Ellis as part of the audio book blog tour. Many thanks to Phoebe and Ben if Midas PR for the invitation.
About the book
The Patient Man is the sixth instalment in the Jackman and Evans series but the first one I’ve listened to and I’m totally kicking myself now. I so wish I’d read the previous books but not having done so didn’t spoil my enjoyment of this one, if anything it’s made me really want to catch up on the first five now.
Narrated by Richard Armitage who really brings this story to life, I found myself totally and utterly gripped. His narration is fantastic and the different voices he uses really gives each character depth. I sometimes find my mind can wonder when listening to audiobooks but not once did I have to go back and listen again.
Like I said previously this is my first Joy Ellis book but I didn’t feel lost at all, I mean obviously there are things mentioned that I knew were connected to previous story lines but it didn’t take the enjoyment away in the slightest.
I got a real feel for the characters very early on, they just seemed to come to life in my ears and I liked that and them. Both Jackman and Evans are interesting characters and I’m looking forward to finding out more about them and catching up.
The plot is fantastic and I’m not going to give anything away but it really had me on the edge of my seat, with many twists and turns this is a story that you find you don’t want to stop. I had to keep listening to find out what was going to happen next. It’s an addictive listen and it’s probably the quickest I’ve listened to an audio book in a long time.
So I think you’ll gather that yes I will be recommending this audio book and I will definitely be catching up on the books I’ve missed. Great story, fantastic characters and a fabulous narrator (even if his Scottish accent sounds like Mrs Doubtfire). I’m so pleased I’ve been introduced to the gripping world of Jackman and Evans.
My names Dee-Cee, I’m a mum in my 30’s and I’m obsessed with reading. From an early age reading became a passion, but after a family tragedy back in 2014 my love of books has grown and it gives me an escape from grief and takes me into another world. I love Crime, Psychological thrillers, anything with a murder really. I leave reviews on my blog, Amazon UK, .com, Goodreads and Netgalley.
