あらすじ・解説

A ravaged wood, a man in uniform long dead - this is not a World War One battlefield but Wanwood House, a pharmaceutical research centre.

Peter Pascoe attends his grandmother’s funeral, and scattering her ashes leads him, too, into war-torn woods in search of his great-grandfather, who fought and died in Passchendaele. Seeing the wood for the trees is the problem for Andy Dalziel when he finds himself fancying an animal rights activist depite her possible complicity in a murderous assault and her appalling taste in whisky. A mind-bending puzzle leading us on the wild side of the pastoral.

Probably the worst Dalziel Pascoe Book

I have read and/or listened to all the Dalziel Pascoe books over and over. I had read The Wood Beyond just once, and wondered when I saw it offered on Audible, why I never picked it up again. Having listened to this audio version, now I know why. Its slow, not at all exciting, and most of the book is spent on Peter Pascoe's family history.

It seems that the current narrator of the Dalziel and Pascoe series, Jonathan Keeble, is here to stay. He is fine, but just fine. He does a good Andy, Peter and Weildy. But his womens' voices are truly awful.

Hope they bring back Shaun Dooley or Colin Buchanan. They are outstanding. I can't count how many times I have listened to the Dalziel/Pascoe books they narrate.

If you are a fan of this great series, you can skip this book and not miss a thing.

Perfect recipe for mystery

In my favorite novels, there is a mixture of past and present, good and bad, anticipation and satisfaction. Reginald Hill has such a deft touch. His books are never too salty sweet, or bitter--but just a delicious mélange that keeps me coming back for another banquet!

Reginald Hill in fine form.

What did you love best about The Wood Beyond?

The level of detail that Reg Hill imparts is truly impressive. All the characters are well developed - you are invested right from the start.

What did you like best about this story?

The back drop of the Pascoe family history.

Which character – as performed by Jonathan Keeble – was your favorite?

Keeble does a masterful job with all the characters but I guess I enjoy his Peter Pascoe the most.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I had the time - yes

D and P always a delight

the narrator is very good and brings familiar characters to life. as usual Reginald Hill's facility with dialogue makes the plot almost irrelevant. wonderful use of language. His regionalisms, combine with historical and literary references to make a challenging and compelling read. I always wonder how many times I miss his nods to other authors or past events.

Too involved

I’ve liked the last few books from this author but this one shot off at a tangent,tried to tell two stories at once and I lost interest

Hill never fails to give a good story

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wood Beyond to be better than the print version?

I like to listen to audio books when ironing, cooking or gardening, you can't do these with a print book!

I do wish there were more Reginald Hill books on audio, in particular 'A Cure for all Diseases'. I have read this book and borrowed an audio version from my local library. I would like to own an audio copy.

Any additional comments?

When you finish a book by Reginald Hill, you can't fail to be impressed by the planning that must have gone into the story to tie up all the ends.
This was no exception.
Jonathan Keeble gives a good narration.

Slow start - great finish

Really slow to get going but really worth the effort to keep listening. Lots of twists in the plot right to last few minutes!

Excellent narration with good clef distinctive characters.

Simply boring

This title & the previous book 14 (returned) are just boring. If you want various French Latin & probably Norman French & then with ordinary English translation then fine. This and its predecessor has virtually no story at all. Its boring! Bought these two because I did like the tv series & the performer is very good but its pompous boring nothing. This one will go back as well.

Brilliant and beautifully read

Read the book years ago. I particularly enjoyed the reading with different voices and accents. Amazing job and made the story even better. I listen in the car to and from work and have spent extra time before getting out of the car to hear the end of a chapter

Dalziel and Pascoe are always a good read

I’ve enjoyed all the Reginald Hill books I’ve read. I was a little distracted by a few too many coincidences and odd moments (especially what happens in the lake at the end - weird).

I really don’t like the Dalziel voice or most of the female voices. Ellie sounds to me like a stereotypical “country bumpkin”.

Still a great book and overcame the spotty narration.

Another very enjoyable diversion

A really good story, with a most timely and thought provoking subplot on WW1. The characters as always are rich and rewarding, providing color and depth which lasts throughout. As always, Jonathan Keeble reads with the most pleasurable results.

Can't be bothered to finish it!

I read the woodcutter and thought it was a great book, so I followed my usual plan and bought another by this author, I have struggled to get into this one. It's too slow for me, I like action and suspense and this book has failed miserably to spark any interest. I have since given up.
