  • "Terrific Book"

    Overall

    This is really part two of a previous book by Turow, Presumed Innocent. Although not entirely necessary to read the first of this two part series, I think doing so brings the listener a much better understanding of the story line. That book was quite good also.
    This book kept my interest throughout.
    I found myself engrossed in the characters lives and story. The ending is satisfying; the exception being a few paragraphs that are narrated by a female portraying one of the main characters, that just didn't fit in with the rest of the well written novel.
    Nevertheless, Turow is skilled in bringing the listener along as his characters are faced with choices and dilemmas in their lives, making the story so interesting and engrossing.
    The narrator, Edward Hermann, in both of these books is so very expertise in his tone, pace and challenging accents.
    If you like stories about lawyers, crime, and courtroom drama, you should enjoy this book, as well as Presumed Innocent.
    Happy listening!

  • "Really Good Storyline"

    Overall

    I am happy to be able to write a positive review, finally, for a recently written Patterson book. I have felt lately that these collaborative books have been really lacking, but not this one. This story is true to the women's stories of the past, with lots of mystery and a dash of romance. I love this narrator, she truly brings the women's voices to life. If you have enjoyed the series in the past you will like this book too.

    Story

    JLB is one of my very favorite authors. This book gives us a bit of "more of the same" however, one may consider.... when is too much of something you love a bad thing? Well maybe when it becomes predictable and when one can get a whiff of staleness. I truly can't say this happens throughout this book, but I confess during most of part one, I was asking myself these questions.
    So to the good parts..... great scary bad guys....including one guy that has such a dirty past, it will make your skin crawl. And as always the reader/listener gets to enjoy the push/pull relationship between Dave and Clete. Clete has a long lost family member appear in this book and her part makes for some interesting happenings.
    Then there is Alafair, in this story she plays an interesting role. I couldn't quite figure out why as an adult she is at home living with her parents. And at times her involvement in the intrigue with the bad guys really doesn't make sense.
    Oh and of course Will Patton is always perfect narrating these books for JLB.
    So for me it was a wee bit of a mix. But as the story progressed, I as always, couldn't help myself, I just fell in love with this book.

Marci's greatest hits:
  • Mr. Mercedes: A Novel

    "King and Patton create a winning combo"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I don't love Stephen King. The last I listened of his was 11/22/63 because the reviews were so good and I loved it. Before that, I felt burned by a couple of his books because they just weren't very good. I love creepy and twisted, I just don't think that King is very consistent.
    I took a chance on Mr Mercedes because I think Patton can do no wrong, I have an admitted voice-crush on him.
    I lucked out, we all got lucky in this combo coming together because this is a GREAT audiobook.
    The bad guy is perfectly sinister. He's young, and egotistical. His character is developed so well that I truly hated him. I didn't just fear what he would do next, I felt myself really hating him as a person, I'm tense just writing this about him.
    The reluctant hero is always my favorite character in any book like this, and Hodges is perfect. Again, King was masterful in developing a depth of character that made me really feel like I knew him well. I cheered for him, and found myself talking outloud to him, offering unsolicited advice.
    The action built in a perfect way. I wish I could describe it better, but the pace was just as it should be. To me, this was character driven, I cared because I cared about them and had that emotional connection, then the action and story were the perfect foil for them.
    The ending was great. It wrapped in a way that did the characters justice, nothing was over-done, or unbelievable, it was genuine.

    I loved and recommend this book.

  • Command Authority

    "Great story with a couple of flaws"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I wanted to savor, cherish, and adore this book as it is the last we will receive by Tom Clancy. But I also want to be true in reviewing it.

    Here are the great Clancy characteristics that Command Authority has:

    Complexity with a great ending:
    Clancy is the master in writing extremely complex political tales that come spinning into an ending that leaves you breathless.Command Authority has that.

    Wild and totally believable tales:
    Not a detail was left out. At one point, Ryan senior uses an umbrella in a scene, and in the scene before that, Clancy specifically writes about Ryan borrowing the umbrella from the door man. Too many "action" authors miss that kind of detail. But it's that genius writing that makes all the wild scenes purely enjoyable.

    Facts and details:
    I always finish a Clancy novel feeling like I learned a bunch. This story delivers on that.

    An obvious love for the subject matter:
    Once again, Clancy's knowledge of military life and international travel and characters come through, which makes him so credible and this story great.

    The Clancy characteristics that are missing from Command Authority:

    Total clarity and super smooth flow. This book gets confusing. With going back and forth in time between Sr. and Jr. and the way the chapters are labeled, I got lost more than once, especially right in the middle of the book. I was just starting to tire of the feeling of not knowing what was going on, and then in the last 25% it got back on track and was easy to follow.

    A love for the original characters:
    Some of the characteristics that made the world LOVE Jack Ryan, weren't played up and weren't revisited. I don't grow tired of hearing how suave he is, and how super human and yet perfectly down to earth he is. I wanted to fall in love all over again, and a little bit of that was missing.

    I don't know how much of the book was written by Mark Greaney. I searched for some information on that, but none could be found. We can only guess why exactly this book felt a little different.

    Phillips as the narrator only gets four stars because he has a lilt to the way he finishes each sentence that works in interpersonal/conversational scenes, but is weird and a little distracting during the action scenes. Most of the time though, he's great.

    Clancy fans will read/listen to this book no matter what, I know I was going to. With that said, I really do recommend this book.

  • Second Honeymoon

    "Fun ride, good twists"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    How many different crime fighter stories can there be where multiple factors collide in a believable way? Well, now there is one more and it's a good one. As soon as the story began I was invested and interested to see how the different stories were going to collide. The story did not disappoint. It was creative, with some great twists.

    The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the male narrator, Jay Snyder. The female wasn't great either, but it felt like she got better as the story went on and she became nicely invisible. Snyder though was overly dramatic to the point of making the listen less enjoyable. There were several moments when I thought, "oh, that was lame" and at first thought it was badly written, then I realized that if those moments hadn't been read by someone who was massively overacting, they might have been funny and endearing, instead, they came across as just bad.

    There is also quite a bit of dramatic music and some sound effects like footsteps which were really jarring at first. I have never listened to a book on Audible that included those. I got used to them, and while I don't think they added to the story, for me, they weren't a negative.

    This is a light summer listen. There are a lot of those out there, but this one is smart, fun, and worthy of investing the time. I recommend.

  • Bad Luck and Trouble: A Jack Reacher Novel

    "One of the best so far"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I love Jack Reacher and this series. I love the predictability and unpredictability of each of these books. I don't give every one five stars, however, this one is especially good because it brings back people from Jack's past. You get to know him even more than usual.

  • "A "could-not-put-it-down" p..."

    16 of 16 helpful votes

    I know (and love) David Rosenfelt's work from his wonderful Andy Carpenter series. This is my first time listening to something else he has written. And this book did not disappoint in any way. On the contrary, if possible, I even liked it better!

    The premise of this one could so easily have been mishandled by someone with less skill and talent, But Rosenfelt makes it very credible. After a hurricane in Maine, a town decides to open a time capsule which should not have been opened till way into the future, fearing the water damage present might have affected it's contents. And what they discover turns the town on it's head. Instead of usual local items of historical interest and predictions, there is a corpse and a different set of predictions that could only have been written by someone planning future crimes. They give proof that a murder for which they thought they had convicted the right person several years ago, could not have been committed by him. Unfortunately, the man convicted was killed in prison, so cannot help them now.

    It falls to chief Jake Robbins to try to stop what he fears will be more murders now that he has this fresh evidence, but as he races against the clock, he finds himself becoming one of the main suspects.

    Excellent writing. Excellent narration (though Steitzer had a tiny bit of difficulty with some women's voices). The plot flows well and quickly, the characters are well-drawn, and the tension is present in a way that kept me drawn in from start to finish! Can't wait to go back and read another of Mr. Rosenfelt's non-series books. If they all are as a good as this one, I'm sure they will be wonderful!

    Libby Day was seven when her mother and two sisters were murdered in "The Satan Sacrifice of Kinnakee, Kansas".
