あらすじ・解説

Commissioned by Audible and written especially for audio format this collection brings together six crime stories through the themes of discovery, destination and arrival. Top narrators bring these gripping tales to life acknowledging the Scandinavian tradition of oral storytelling.

In this collection Ben Okri and Martin Edwards explore 'discovery' in their stories; Sophie Hannah and Emma Dibdin each draw on 'destination' for their tales of painful pasts; and Elly Griffiths and Parker Bilal tackle the theme of 'arrival' in their stories.

Skald is one of three short story collections written by our favourite best-selling novelists and emerging authors, and curated based on the themes of arrival, discovery and destination. Jali collates science fiction tales while Bard collates contemporary fiction.

Enjoyable listen overall

Good stories overall. However, one story seems to be somewhat incomplete I, personally would want to find out more about characters and what happened to them. I don't want to spoil the listen, but I hope you would figure out which story I am talking on about. Generally, it is worth listening, and it is free. What are you going to lose?

Bland multiverse mumbo-jumbo

A really great narrator, unfortunately terribly bland writing, for example - "not where... but *when*"

Disappointed with stories

Two stories were OK. Bully and Zephyr. The rest were poor and were not really stories at all but to me, just self-indulgent waffling. I wouldn't recommend.

Good stories, but poorly grouped.

I thought that these were all good stories, but they were bundled together as a set crime stories in the tradition of Scandinavian crime fiction. I don't know who made that decision, or why, but it detracted from the set simply because I went in with very different expectations.

very underwhelming

so disappointed, the stories got worse as I listened, hoped they would improve but they didnt. Also some stories end unfinished.

Another Audible winner.

Wonderful stories to enjoy ...all with similar themes yet each story very different and original. Narration was excellent. A great, well made gift from Audible. Thank you.
