The author went to so much trouble to familiarize a new reader with the characters and themes that I thought I was 're-listening' to a story I had already heard.
After hearing 8 in the series, they're all old friends
NO. Not in this series. Mispronounced too many words and names. Why wasn't this edited??
He did the voices well so probably should not do accents.
More Gabriel Alon
And Buffalo George
This thriller is told in several distinct parts. Book takes place mostly in Israel and deals with the time frame of Arab-Israeli conflict early in the 21st century. Actual players on the world stage play roles,thus a good political thriller. Lots of arabic characters who were hard to follow, until we zeroed in on the one bad guy. Gabriel Alon is a fascinating character--plot and story are so well developed. Next Gabriel Alon, please?
I listened to this audiobook and must say I wouldn't recommend any book narrated by Guerin Berry. He was awful and a total distraction. I'm not sure who to blame for the beginning (Silva the author or Berry) but it seems to drag on and on. Thanks to Silva, the second half was action packed and kept me listening but I will try to avoid Berry on future audio books.
I am a big fan of Daniel Silva and It's disappointing to have a good book ruined by a poor narration. But this book is ruined by the horrible voice of this narrator. Story is quite good and probably should be read and not listened to.
I absolutely could not put it down. Really a fantastic blend of historical fact and fiction to create a very entertaining as well as enlightening story.
The book continues with the series which is great no real gap between the two books. The audio is horrible and the narrator miss pronounces a lot of words. The worst was m fifteen for mi5. Sometimes I wonder if there is any over site on the production or prof reading so to speak of some books.
I discovered this Daniel Silva series by accident and have not listened in order. Prince of Fire helped give order to the life of Gabriel Allon. Fiction based on true events. I travel the world and gain a knowledge of it's history. The narrator is great.
