Tell us about yourself! I enjoy diffrent authors. Some of my favs are the Ken Follett series, some suspense and mystery .
At times I loved it and couldn't stop listening and other parts I felt like, come on, come let's move on.
Yes I liked the story line ( for the most part ) and the characters. They weren't all shiny polished and perfect. They had everyday struggles like most of us do.
He is a very good performer. For me it is about the narration. If I don't like the narration I can't get through a good story.
You really thought you could pull this off???
Worth listening to
Fun book and funny diolog, The ending was a bit anticlimactic.. But if you're looking for a light and fun adventure full of nail biting thrills and funny scenes, this book is perfect..
Best character of the book was "Joey". I'd read a sequel with her as the main.
Ollie and Charlie were Insipid whining and arguing brothers and the emphasis on the brotherly dynamics was painful.
Avoid this steaming pile of crap like the plague!
I made myself finish it, hoping that by some kindness the main characters would all be killed off. No such luck.
The interaction between the brothers, the trite
dialog, the cliff-hanger-a-minute setups, and the pointless storyline make this simply annoying to listen to. It couldn't have taken more than a day to write this.
Save your money/credits, get any other book.
Author of Passion Surrender, which was released in January 2015. I enjoy reading, writing, traveling and spending time with my family.
Brad Meltzer does it again! I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the extensive character development created by the author. I was on the edge of my chair with anticipation as the narrator read along. Oliver and Charlie were very likable characters as they brought us along into their world of banking.
I'm a simple Mystery-thriller, sci-fi & fantasy, fiction listener.
I really enjoyed this book, but a few things were easily predictable. I'll definitely keep reading Brad Meltzer.
Less arguing between the brothers. If I wanted to hear that much arguing I would babysit 5 year old triplets. I understand you have to "set" characters personalities. But no two people can be in that close of a proximity, for that length of time, arguing CONSTANTLY without one killing the other.....
yes, the storyline is excellent. Use two siblings that argue occasionally instead of constantly and I give it 4 stars.
I am a big fan of some of Brad Meltzer's other work, but this book was horrible. I only gave it two stars because I actually made it to the end instead of giving up halfway, which would have warranted one star. Don't waste your money!
I'm an avid listener always searching for another good book and willing to share my thoughts with a pithy review.
Based on my personal experience in the venture capital and banking world, the story lacked originality and believability. The two brothers were well beyond the range of believability regarding their caring for each other. Their relationship reminded me of the soppy scenes from romantic love stories.
Brad seems to be caught in a dilemma. Should he concentrate on the serious mystery and story line...or should he continue to sprinkle it so heavily with marginal humor that he detracts from the seriousness of the story? At least for my taste, he has the proportions all wrong. And that's when and why it gets really hokey.
Scott Brick is an experienced narrator with many fine performances to his credit. But this time it's different. He just plain overworks or exaggerates too often and to too high a degree. It would read better if he toned down his rhetoric.
Notwithstanding my disappointment with this book, I plan to try Brad Meltzer again. Here's hoping for a better result, stay tuned.
