Easily entertained and amused.
The plot and story are good. I have no objections to the reader or his accent or any noises that seem to offend people. The book was worth the price and good entertainment.
List of favorite books: Woodcutter - Reginald Hill, Consent to Kill, First Deadly Sin - Lawrence Sanders, Sniper Elite - Scott McEwen
I have looked up this title several times, but the reviews put me off. I also listened to Down River and was not impressed at all. I read a recent review and decided to give it a shot. They warned me that the narrator David Chandler smacked his lips a little bit in between sentences, but I thought he did a good job. I don't know why but it reminded me of a Nelson DeMille book.
I feel comfortable giving this book 4 stars
For what it's worth, J
Wonderful story, different , not fill in the blanks story
Yes , would have loved listened to story at one setting, but 12 hours?
Terrific story, can't imagine anyone not enjoying this author, looking forward to next two books, enjoy
I'm trying, but I may not be able to finish the book. The main character is unlikable and the others are annoying. There's a lot of unnecessary cheating sex that is hard to listen to. I will probably return it. I have never done that before.
The author just labored on and on with how the main character felt and what he thought. He made his hero seem weak and pathetic. Could have told this story in about half the words. Actually, I lost my place several times during his tirades and self pity.
The story is not believable or entertaining. The plot is just weak and the inserted drama of feelings, thoughts and self-recrimination just wore on me.
Cut it to just tell the story.
I have had this in my library for sometime. Bought it on reviews and the sale price. Somehow I overlooked it, finally downloaded to my iPod and now I know to watch more closely at the books on sale and this author. Never again.....
I suffered through this until the last third when it became interesting. The narration was so inappropriate for rhe story that he made good prose sound trite.
So much of this story is banal and expected. The main character is not believable
as he is always angry, shouting, etc. No sympathy for him.
