The Collaborator: Unabridged Audiobook by Gerald Seymour

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

This is an unabridged audiobook title.

A classic novel by a superb writer using all his skills of storytelling and characterisation to plunge us into the heart of the Mafia world in Naples. It is both thrilling and emotional, a novel to remember. I believe this author to be one of the best we have in this intelligent thriller area.

Gerald Seymour on Unabridged v Abridged:

I am a total supporter of unabridged audio. The idea that the soul and spirit of a story can be retained after drastic surgery is ridiculous. The quality of the artists who read the unabridged versions is quite simply superb, they bring a whole new dimension to an author's work.

Comparison: John Le Carré, Henry Porter, Frederick Forsyth.

This is an Unabridged audiobook title, which includes every word that you would otherwise find in the printed edition. Don’t forget, if the story was meant to be shorter the author would have written less! Click here to take a peek at our selection of Unabridged audiobooks.

You might be interested to know the abridged audiobook version runs to only 25% of the full length.

If you like Gerald Seymour you might also like to read books by Christopher Reich, Sam Bourne and Lee Child.
