These books are always interesting and keep you wanting more. It's fiction people it's OK for the bullets to be flying and our hero is untouched.
Good mysteries, good character development, awesome narrator, and in all of these stories a lot of the bad guys really 'get theirs' - and I like that!!!
Avid audio book listener with over 1600 books in my library!
I really enjoyed this one! The story line was well written and Scott Brick is back so the listen was much more enjoyable. I really like the cast of characters, looking forward to the rest of the series!!
I generally read books out of their published order, and had read "The Cleaner" awhile ago, but wasn't inspired to read more of Battles. The real breakthrough and character development came for me when I read "Becoming Quinn", which really fleshed out Jonathan Quinn and gave the character depth. Deciding to continue reading Battles after enjoying the prequel so much, I chose this one, based on some of the reviews and the narrator being one of my favorites. I found the character development of Quinn still somewhat shallow, and almost unrecognizable from the depth of the prequel. The other things that bothered me were some trite dialogue. Not sure if I'll try Battles a third time.
The story was ridiculous and poorly structured. The emotions shown in this book were strange based on the background and theme of the series. It only got worse as it progressed.
I really like the prequel Becoming Quinn but this book was the polar opposite.
The narrator only made the story worse. The affectations of longing and sympathy from the narrator accentuated the bad story theme.
too many to mention
I can't figure out how this book received such good ratings from the other audible members.
"I ain't often right but I've never been wrong"
Again I'm finding things to clean just to listen to this book - better than the first book
Definitely, especially with Scott Brick as the narrator.
Yes. The focus required by Quinn and Nate to find each other in the obscure island was terrific. Once having a tiny piece of information and then continuing to piece the puzzle together. The characters were heroic.
I couldnt stop listening, always on the edge of my seat. No laughing or crying, just rooting for the Quinn and his team.
Can't wait for Brett Battle's next book.
This is,unfortunately, a very lame story, read with more melodrama than it deserves and, in the end, was a major disappointment even as a mindless time filler while driving in rush hour traffic. The last two books that I have listened to that were read by Scott Brick have both been poor listens, I think in part due to the basic story lines being so bad, but also he is trying too hard to give these trite pieces more gravitas than they can handle.
Audible addict! A friend told me to try this, and it was incredible. I travel for work and this is a great way to make the miles melt away.
I think Brett Battles has done an incredible job of showing how a professional fixer of problems would act when involved with personal issues. I love the character development he uses here. The dynamic bewteen the characters is phenomenal. I just purchased book four in the series here and can't wait to get started. I hope there are 10 more coming.
Individually, the action scenes were quite enjoyable, but the entire premise seemed extremely forced. Kidnapping disabled children from around the world to use them in a bombing plot? How did they get them all into the US? Too far-fetched.
The leaders of the really bad guys seemed to shrivel up when faced with real strength. Not very convincing there either.
But the LP as a long-term conspiracy-world-domination group, now that seems plausible.
Scott Brick seems to be trying to make every word exciting by lots of swooping, and then by ending on unnatural high tones. I tried repeating his sentences with normal English intonation (dropping at the ends) and it sounded much better. This ends up being New York Jewish question intonation, even for the Aussie. His tight, nasal voice combined with the wrong intonation is exhausting. His Aussie accent is good though when it didn't go Jewish.
