This was one of the best books I have downloaded to date. Good plot, great characterization, fantastic narration - well worth the time.
I enjoyed this book, but felt it borrowed too heavily from John Le Carre's The Little Drummer Girl in tone, plot and style.
Unlike other Daniel Silva novels, "The Messenger" crawls. The protagonists are uninteresting and the action and dialog predictable and preposterous. When a reader can't identify with the characters or plot, the novel fails.
Christopher Lee reads well, but he doesn't develop the characters as well as John Lee. And, his accents are undeveloped, Italian, Israeli, Saudi all sounding nearly identical.
Is this end of the Gabriel Allon character?
I have read all the books in the Allon series and have been working my way through the audio versions. I truly love George Guidall`s narrations and wish all the books were done by him.
great performance too.
unfortunately, none of story's context got outdated after ten years.
if liked the previous books, you'll enjoy this one as well .
The reader was difficult to understand and it was challenging listen. Combined with a plot that dragged I almost didn't make it through this book.
Wow! What a heart stopper this one was! I couldn't stop listening - 8 hours in one day! They just keep getting better and better :)
I've listened to about 4 of the Silva books and this was one of the best productions. If you like him, listen to this one.
