I was looking forward to this book, but I found it a little long winded. An example would be when the "bad guy" confronts the "good guy" and has a 25 minute diatribe about why the "good guy" has been misled along with the rest of mankind.... OK if you are looking for something very light and don't mind having guessing what's coming next.
Avid reader/ now listener. Indian. history buff.
Yes , a good listen . Loved it Audible. Narration is excellent. Started reading in Paris now ended listening to it in Delhi Metro. Thanks
The story falls short when characters that he has spent time building up to show how clever and smart they are do absolutely dumb things. I almost didn't finish the last 10 min of the book for this very reason.
So much coincidence in the plot that it borders on fantasy. Such florid prose as to draw attention to itself, and not in a good way (who plops "vertiginous" in the middle of simple description? It fell with an annoying clunk!).
I toughed it out since I had purchased the audiobook, but should have paid more attention to reader reviews before buying. Don't do it!!
This was a predictable, unbelievable, and long running story. The characters were okay, but this is one of those stories that just seem to go on an on. I had to take a break from this one, and I never came back to it.
This is my first book by this author and I have really come to appreciate how he crafts a good story. Just when you think you know what is going on, he brings another surprise.
Lover of books, music, and all things Scottish.
I love stories about the templates and I really like a fast paced mysteries so I figured this would be a winner. It was pretty good. A lite predictable in places, but I enjoyed it enough to buy the next book in the series.
